CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
An east Charlotte family is planning on moving out of their neighborhood after two men broke into their home late Wednesday morning. That family told Eyewitness News it's the second time their house on Harrill Street has been burglarized this year. Police arrested Darrell Holloman and Terrence Jackson after a landlord chased the men down Harrill Street after they stole guns, electronics and other belongings. The Johnsons still haven't gotten back all of their personal possessions that were stolen. "We're not comfortable being here alone. It's time to move," Will Johnson said. Johnson was at work Wednesday morning when, police said, the two men broke into his rental house in the Belmont neighborhood. The men tripped the alarm, and the property owner came by to see what was going on. That's when, police said, the robbers ran out the back door. After a short foot chase, officers arrested the men. Both men are charged with several counts including felony breaking and entering. Jackson is also charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Johnson said it's the second time his house has been broken into this year. "It was eye-opening. We're ready to probably leave," Johnson said. "It's just not safe." According to police records, there have been 17 home burglaries near Harrill Street thisyear, the same number of home burglaries as the same time period last year. Neighbors told Eyewitness News they want to see a bigger police presence in the area. "In the middle of the day I guess is when we'd need it more because that's when it seems to happen," said neighbor Lorie Smith. A burglar smashed Smith's window and stole her computer after she moved into the neighborhood in March. "It's awful, and it's horrible, and to get your stuff stolen, you work hard for what you got and trying to make ends meet," Smith said.
