Kannapolis Police identify third suspect in rash of robberies

Kannapolis ó The Kannapolis Police Department Criminal Investigations Division has identified a third suspect in several robberies at the Oakcrest Apartments on Hammock Lane.
The department is seeking the public’s help in finding Shakeal Raneal Hendricks, 16. He is wanted for three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon for his involvement in three separate robberies that occurred over three days, a press release said. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
The first robbery occurred May 23 at around 10:15 p.m. after a Domino’s Pizza employee was called to deliver an order in the area of 1700 Hammock Lane.
The employee said that as she attempted to deliver the order, she was approached by at least two men carrying handguns and demanding money and property. The woman complied.
The second robbery occurred May 24, at around 11:20 p.m. An employee of Wing Zone was making a delivery to the area of 1700 Hammock Lane. The employee reported that he was approached by two men with handguns who demanded money and the food. The suspects took the employee’s money and the food he was delivering.
The third robbery occurred May 26, at around 2:50 a.m., when an employee of TJ’s Taxi Service was dispatched to the area of 1700 Hammock Lane. The driver reported that as he entered the apartment complex, three men got into his cab. He said at least two of the suspects displayed handguns and demanded money. The cab driver gave them his money.
Police arrested two suspects, Theodore Blackwelder and Marvin Clayton, and charged them with involvement in the crimes. The charges against Clayton have since been dismissed. Blackwelder is charged with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Hendricks is described as 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 170 pounds. His last known address was 1310 Lane St.
Authorities ask anyone with information to contact Cabarrus Area Crime Stoppers at 704-93-CRIME. For more information, contact Kannapolis Police Investigator Kay R. Linker at 704-920-4019.
