After gathering suspect and vehicle descriptions, Robbery Unit Detectives requested assistance from local law enforcement to help in the identification process. The York County Sheriff’s Office was able to aid detectives in identifying one of suspects involved in this case.

The investigation revealed that the suspects were also involved in other crimes throughout Charlotte and York County, SC, for which warrants were issued.
On Tuesday, July 30, 2013, the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team located and arrested Mr. Treible, Mr. Bowlin and Ms. Melton without incident.
