Deputies charged a fifth suspect Sunday in connection with an armed robbery on Deal Road in July.
According to an arrest report, Abdul White was charged with two counts of felony aiding and abetting and given a $100,000 bond.
White is the brother of Osman White, who was charged — along with three others — with planning the July heist while in Mecklenburg County jail.
Deputies told the Post in September that Abdul White was wanted in connection to the case after detectives found that White received money after the robbery.
Roderick Darnell Hardin was arrested just days after Scott Beaver told authorities he and his family were held at gunpoint inside their Deal road home in July.
Deputies traced the stolen money back to a Charlotte storage unit and charged Hardin at the scene.
After Hardin’s arrest, detectives learned that Hardin, Osman White and Leo McIntyre Jr., planned the robbery while in jail through “coded messages.”
Detectives have since charged all three, along with Tim Donahue, who deputies believe helped case the residence, and are also searching for Hardin’s sister, Vashonda, who deputies said also received money from the robbery.
Osman White remains in Mecklenburg County jail as a federal inmate. Hardin, Donahue and Leo McIntyre Jr. are in the Rowan County jail.
Hardin has a $1.6 million bond. Donahue was given a $250,000 bond, while McIntyre received a $175,000 bond.
All three received charges of felony robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy to commit robbery. Hardin was additionally charged with two counts of kidnapping.
The investigation continues and deputies ask that anyone with information contact Detective Lieutenant Chad Moose, 704-216-8687; Detective Adam Loflin 704-216-8686; or Crime Stoppers, 866-639-5245.
