Sources: Several men responsible for string of robberies at local Targets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police confirmed Wednesday that several men are connected to a string of armed robberies at Target stores across the Charlotte area.

Sources said Karon Golightly and Damar Harden were responsible for robbing the store on Albemarle Road in September.

They said Golighty, Michael Meeks and Isaiah Harper then robbed the Target at Rivergate in the Steele Creek area last month.

Sources said some of the men are suspects in a third Target robbery in Kannapolis as well.
