A Charlotte man wanted on 17 warrants out of Mecklenburg County was arrested on the weekend for shoplifting in Denver.
On July 20, deputies were dispatched to the Lowes Home Center on Highway 73 in reference to a call about shoplifting. The suspects had loaded a shopping cart with back pack left blowers and a generator valued at more than $1,400 and left the store through the lumber entrance without paying.
Deputies encountered the suspects in the parking lot with the stolen goods. Both suspects left the scene but deputies took them into custody near the QT convenience store. Lowes employees recovered the stolen goods and returned them to the store.
Tyrell Lamar Culbreth, 30, and Steven Demetri Courtney, 34, both of Charlotte, were arrested on one count of felony larceny. Culbreth originally gave deputies a fake name which was discovered when he was booked into the Detention Center. When officers checked his real name they learned that he had 17 outstanding warrants out of Mecklenburg County.
