Three teenage girls arrested for string of car thefts

Two women wanted in string of car thefts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --  Police have arrested three teenage women who they believe are in connection with a string of armed car robberies.

China Blount, Jamaka Culbreath and Alexis Johnson were charged Monday for the armed robbery of three separate victims, all who were sitting in their cars. 

On Thursday, a man was sitting in his vehicle at his apartment complex when the suspects pulled out firearms and demanded he get out of his vehicle. After he got out of his car, the suspects drove off with it. 

"He was in his phone thinking of something else and then they popped up out of nowhere with guns in his face," said Yolanda Wade, the victim's mother.

According to police, the two other robberies occurred later the same day. All victims were held up at gunpoint by the suspects who fled all scenes in the stolen vehicles.

One woman pointed the gun directly at the victim's face.

"That shook him up because as you know in today's world that could have been a different outcome," said Wade.

Yolanda, the victim's mom, chose to have her identity hidden. The stolen car belonged to her. This couldn't have happened at a worse time.

"It hurts a lot especially at a time now where I am trying to recover from surgery and I'm trying to make due with my family in order for us to get through this time with what we got just to have somebody come through and take what you work for hurts a lot," said Wade. 

All three suspects are scheduled to make their first appearance in court Tuesday afternoon.
