CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police have arrested five people they say are responsible for a home invasion on Sunday, as well as multiple armed robberies.

Just before 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were called to the 3500 block of Burner Drive in reference to a home invasion. Authorities say the victims were robbed of their phones and money, then provided a detailed description of the three black females and several black male suspects, who then fled in a gray vehicle.

Officials quickly called out a description of the suspects and their vehicle, and a short time later, the vehicle was spotted in the 4800 block of Central Avenue.
