CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Three arrests have been made in what Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police call a significant series of breaking and entering cases.

Officers responded to 14 calls at phone and gaming businesses in a two-and-a-half week period last month. Detectives say they noticed a trend in the cases, and asked the Property Crimes Surveillance Unit to investigate further. Kenneth Black, Travis Gill and Luquese Black were identified as suspects.

On Wednesday, police say they confirmed the suspects planned to strike again at Radio Shack on Concord Mills Boulevard. In a joint effort with Concord Police, officers say they took all of the suspects into custody during the break-in.

Kenneth Black, 32, and Gill, 33, were immediately arrested. Police say Luquese Black suffered injuries while trying to flee from police. He will be charged upon release from the hospital.

Police say each suspect has been tied to the 14 cases in Charlotte, another case in Pineville and one other in Concord.

During this time detectives were able to tie these individuals to 14 cases in Charlotte, 1 case in Pineville and 1 case in Concord.

Additional charges are pending.
