MONROE — Tony Sanders II, of Charlotte, was arrested by Union County Sheriff’s Deputies on Wednesday (Jan. 5) and charged with Felony Breaking and Entering with the Intent to Terrorize or Injure Occupant and Second-Degree Trespass.

Deputies and criminal investigators responded to a residence in the 6600 block of Bluebird Hill Lane in Weddington to investigate a breaking and entering. The homeowner told law enforcement the suspect is family member who broke into their home and made threats of violence toward the homeowner.

During the break-in, the homeowner fired a shotgun at the suspect, striking him in the leg. The suspect fled the scene and was eventually located just across the Union County line into Mecklenburg on Providence Road. Sanders was treated at a hospital for his wound and discharged before being arrested by UCSO.

UCSO Sheriff Eddie Cathey stated “I am glad that the homeowners were not hurt during this incident and that they were prepared to protect themselves. The investigation into this incident was handled professionally and efficiently and this family can rest a little easier knowing that the suspect is in our jail.”
