Got this email in . . . and glad to see that a CMPD officer was on top of things in this situation . . . but look at the info on the thugs. They were born in 1987 . . . and one of them has been arrested 15 times - the other, 10 times. Why are these punks on the streets?????


Providence Division Officer Makes Burglary Arrests



Officer Mike Haney of the Providence Division was working a burglary suppression *patrol in the Dilworth neighborhood Wednesday morning (10/8/08) when he observed two suspicious persons*on Springdale Avenue. Officer Haney approached the two subjects and initiated a voluntary contact with them. The subjects gave Officer Haney permission to pat them down and the officer located numerous digital cameras and personal electronics in one of the subject’s pockets.

The two subjects were also carrying a backpack with an airport luggage tag on it. Officer Haney used the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s online reporting system, KBCOPS, to search for prior police reports involving the name on the tag. Finding a prior report, Officer Haney made contact with the person whose name was on the tag and they confirmed that no one should be in possession of that backpack. Other officers responded to the victim’s home in the 600 block of Olmsted Park Place and found evidence of a burglary.

The two subjects were taken into custody and both have been charged with felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering.

Arrested were:

Teiresias Deandrea Metts, born 9-19-1987, Metts has been arrested 15 times in Mecklenburg County since 2003.

Todd Eric Boderick, born 2-23-1987, Boderick has been arrested 10 times in Mecklenburg County since 2003. Boderick is currently on probation.

Just another example of how CMPD is doing the best job they can yet the county cant figure out a way to keep them off the streets. Whats it going to take, do these guys have to hurt or kill someone before they finally get locked up? Frustrating.....

Yes, it appears to me CMPD is doing their part . . . let's hope we can stop the Revolving Door.

We need to get more info on the Judges that are up for re-election.

Young punks - only 21!!!! - who have this many arrests already - wow - just outrageous.

Seriously, there needs to be some unemployed judges!! Isnt it fortunate that not everything operates on the "15 strikes and you're out" principle?

Now is that one person a girl???? Anyone know? Surely not - 15 arrests. Wonder what all the arrests are for? I can't imagine having gotten in that much trouble and only be 21 y/o.

It's not the judges so much, as crappy prosecution. Whatever they pay prosecutors must be so low that they tear up their own application as they walk out laughing. I saw an interview with Chief Monroe who had discussed the problem with the head honcho at the D.A.'s office. The pay for starting attorneys in the D.A. office is so low that they can't keep half of them long enough to finish a case. So the ones that remain, are the guys that couldn't get a job at a decent law firm. Most of the people here on City-Data, could buy the "Dummies" version of "How to be a Lawyer" and get Osama bin Laden off with a warning in Charlotte. Lawyers don't work for nothing, especially if you just got out of law school with tuition bills up the wazoo. If the people of Charlotte and Mecklenberg County can't offer decent salaries to retain qualified people, then don't complain if the bad guys get off for the umpteenth time - buy a gun at Walmart and be your own judge, jury, prosecutor and executioner!

Understand that arrests are not convictions, but this is ridiculous.

Select "All" from the dropdown in the upper right hand corner of each page for the full record.

Hopefully the charges will stick, and suitable sentences will be handed down.

Something's confusing me. If you have a long rap sheet for previous crimes, why are the judges even setting bail for these thugs?
