CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Six people have been arrested and charged in a summer-long string of robberies around Charlotte, police announced Monday morning.

In all, 28 charges were handed out by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police in eight convenience store robberies between July 26 and September 20.

The robbery string ended on Thursday, police said, when a K-9 was able to track a robbery suspect to a home on Ablewood Road. The 7-11/Shell store at 2519 Beatties Ford Road was robbed at gunpoint and a suspect ran on foot before a K-9 unit found the man.

Officers continued their investigation and the subjects who were inside the residence were interviewed at CMPD Headquarters, CMPD said in a statement.

Police charged four of the six men in connection with the robbery on Thursday at the 7-11/Shell store as well as a robbery on the same day at the Circle K at 701 North Graham Street.
