Man wanted in connection with license plate robbery
Monroe police are searching for a fourth suspect in the November 2010 license plate agency shooting. Police Chief Debra Duncan asked the public for help in locating Kenneth Demetrius Meaders, wanted as an accessory after the fact to the robbery.
On Nov. 1 just before 6 p.m., officers responded to a call of shots fired at the N.C. License Plate Agency, 22 E. Roosevelt Blvd., to find two victims with multiple gunshot wounds – agency operator Crystal Jordan and her husband, Robbie. Both were immediately taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Union, where a day later Robbie Jordan checked himself out. His wife, Crystal Jordan, sustained life threatening injuries from the shooting, which she continues to recover from.
Monroe police arrested Melvin Lee Luckey, 33, and Otis Redding Howie Jr., 25, Nov. 9, 2010. Both face two counts of attempted first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of larceny of a firearm. Howie also faces a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon. A third person, Tanika Vanesia Ingram, was arrested Thursday, Jan. 5, and charged as an accessory after the fact.
Now Monroe police are searching for Meaders, described as a black man, around 5’10 ft and weighing around 215 pounds. Meaders has brown eyes, short black hair and a tattoo of “Mob” on the left side of his neck. A second tattoo of a cross, with the words “Forever Blessed” is on the right side of his neck. Meaders was last seen in Charlotte, around his home at 7304 Pebblestone Drive and is believed to still be in the area.
