PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives have arrested two teens in connection with the Apr. 8 armed home invasion robbery in the 18400 block of Robinson Avenue, Port Charlotte.
Kendrick Lequan McCray, 18, of 21928 Beverly Ave. in Port Charlotte and a 17-year-old Punta Gorda resident were arrested for the crime.
CCSO received a call at 10:20 p.m. from the homeowner reporting two male subjects and a female, all armed with handguns and a rifle, entered his home and stole cash and various electronic items. The trio of robbers then got the keys to the man’s grey Toyota Camry parked in the garage, loaded it with the stolen items, and drove off. The homeowner said he was in fear for his life.
CCSO Crime Scene technicians were called and obtained several fingerprints in the home and Wednesday reported two positive matches that identified the suspects. McCray was located at his work in Port Charlotte, while the 17-year-old girl was found in North Port; both were brought in for questioning.
The two were charged with Home Invasion Robbery with a Firearm; McCray was additionally charged with Grand Theft. He remains in jail on no bond; this is his second booking and the third for the 17-year-old. She was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice center in Ft. Myers where she will remain for 21-days.
Another arrest is pending and the investigation continues.
