In the hysteria, hype and smoke screen from CMPD command staff immediately following the Speed Street Shootings and Riots, police thought that a robber and car jacking at UNCC might have been the shooting suspect. He wasn't.
According to a UNCC safety alert back on June 2, 2011 a man approached a women at the campus West Deck and showed a silver revolver before demanding the keys to her SUV and driving away.
Now two weeks later police say they've arrested three men in connection with that car jacking.
On Thursday, police arrested Gregory Deas, 21, and on Friday, police arrested Gerald Antonio Stanley III, and Demarice Deon Terrell, both 19.
Each was being held Friday in Mecklenburg jail, charged with armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and financial transaction card theft.
Police say Deas was wearing an electronic monitoring device at the time of the robbery. Deas has a long track record of minor and serious crimes, and this one should provide for his permanent incarceration.
No word on why it took so long to run through the GPS read out of Deas' where abouts, but you got to hand it to CMPD they always get their man, or for benefit of Deas "stupid is as stupid does".
