CONCORD, N.C. —
Concord Police said they hope to send a message to repeat offenders after working with Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to arrest a man for car break-ins. Twenty-year-old Charles Everette Davis is in jail on $1 million bond. Officers said he's been involved in crimes throughout the region. "In Charlotte, Gastonia, we believe Rock Hill, that he's been involved in these same type of crimes," Maj. Walter Stofford with Concord police said. Stofford said in September, mall security spotted Davis breaking into cars at Concord Mills Mall. He said when police arrived, Davis jumped into his car and nearly ran over an officer on foot. "I believe he is a dangerous person," Stofford said. Stofford said Davis got away on Interstate 85 south, nearly causing several accidents by weaving through traffic. He said they arrested him a few days later, but Davis bonded out. Eyewitness News discovered Davis has a history of arrests. He's been arrested almost two dozen times in Mecklenburg County on charges ranging from drug possession to assault. After Davis's September arrest, Concord police continued investigating and connected him to another car break-in at the mall in March. On Friday, CMPD arrested him on those charges based on Concord police's warrants. Some shoppers hope the $1 million bond is a wake-up call. "That's perfect," Pauline Webber said. "Hopefully he'll stay locked up, if he doesn't have the money."
