A robbery suspect is in jail after a T-shirt with his photo on it was found outside a home police say he robbed last week.
On March 29, two men broke into a residence on Dinglewood Avenue, off Eastway Drive, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. A man and woman were home at the time, according to a police report, and the suspects moved them from room to room as they stole a wallet and jewelry.
As the suspects fled, police said, the man who lives at the home ran outside after them. During a struggle, a T-shirt fell out of the suspects’ vehicle.
The black T-shirt showed a photo – apparently a mug shot – of a young man and read “Making money is my thang.”
The victim realized the photo was of the man who had just robbed him, police said.
