CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Footprints in the snow helped police track down a pair of men accused of robbing people at two local convenience stores.
According to WCNC, Tajae Rashawn Robinson and Devekico Wright were arrested within hours of the robberies.
Police say the pair robbed a man at a 7-Eleven on Mallard Creek and then fled in the victim’s car.
