Category Archives: Felons Behaving Badly

Sometimes it’s the little things that get you in trouble

If you’re committing big crimes you want to get away with, don’t commit little crimes that catch the attention of the police.

Police encountered a man on a Raleigh street shortly after midnight and charged him with urinating with public – and with breaking and entering and larceny in a burglary that had happened up the street just before.

And who is this paragon of public decorum?


Some people seem to want to be caught.

Speeding to Elude leads to crashing and child abuse charges

When the bright flashy lights appear in your rear-view, probably best to pull over immediately.

Wake County sheriff’s officials charged a 20-year-old father misdemeanor child abuse Friday night in connection with his wrecking a vehicle with his child in it.

(Suspect) of Fuquay-Varina attempted to flee from police during a stop on Fayetteville Road in Fuquay-Varina. He wrecked the vehicle and caused over $1,000 in damage and injured his child, according to warrants. The arrest warrant does not say how old (Suspect)’s child is or what condition the child was in after the accident.

And who would flee from the cops with his child in the car?


Someone who has already proven that he doesn’t value the life or property of another.

He just can’t keep his hands off things

Criminals aren’t like you and me. We know that certain things are off-limits. We don’t take things we don’t own, we don’t hurt people, and we keep our hands off 15-year-old girls.

Police on Tuesday charged (Suspect), 33, of Garner with three counts of statutory rape of a 15-year-old girl last fall between his being paroled from prison and arrested on a new charge by Raleigh police.

He was in prison until Sept. 28, 2013, then released on parole the day before Garner police charged that the statutory rape began.

We already know he’s a felon, but how bad of a person was he?


Keeping his hands off things that don’t concern him is a serious failing on his part.

He’s familiar with conning people into things

The most dangerous thing in the world is a con man. They misuse your trust to convince you to do what they want.

Police detectives early Wednesday charged a 46-year-old man with four counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, saying in arrest warrants that he had nude photos of a 16-year-old girl.

And what does this have to do with a con-man?

Craigslist robbery and murder

Be careful when using Craigslist

An 18-year-old Durham man has been charged in connection with a fatal attempted robbery that happened Tuesday night on Pebblestone Drive in Durham, police said.

Eighteen year old young man goes to buy a phone he found on Craigslist and the guy “selling” it shoots him.

The victim doesn’t appear to have any criminal record.


The suspect even managed to shoot himself in the process.

(Suspect), 18, of Raleigh, was taken to a local hospital, where he later died. Hood also suffered a gunshot wound during the attempted robbery, but his injuries were not life-threatening. Authorities said Wednesday that Hood’s injury was self-inflicted and that one gun was recovered from the scene.

Sadly, the wound will not prove fatal.

Someone needs to explain to me how this suspect got probation for a previous 2nd degree kidnapping charge along with the Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He was convicted only 14 months prior to the murder. He should have still been in prison.

I hope that the judge and the prosecutor are happy with the outcome.

Robbing the Sonic

Sometimes your own employee sells you out.

Three men have been arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a Sonic fast-food restaurant in Cumberland County, including one of the store’s employees.Officials said two men entered the back door of the restaurant on Bragg Boulevard Friday around 10:30 p.m. wearing masks. The pair had a small handgun and demanded money from employees.

The suspects fled on foot and tried to get to a getaway vehicle parked across the street from the restaurant.

After further investigation, police arrested Sonic assistant manager 28-year-old (Suspect 3) and charged him with felony aid and abet armed robbery and felony conspiracy.

It makes sense to consider who you hire very carefully.

Perhaps they were unaware that they had hired a man with two convictions for Common Law Robbery and had served almost 4 years in prison for felony child abuse.

Even the cars are gunning for felons in Durham

I’ve joked about the “Felon Seeking Bullets” in the past. It’s strange how often bullets just happen to hit felons more often than would ordinarily be the case if they were fired at random. But I had no idea that the cars in Durham were randomly hitting felons as well.

Durham police are investigating a hit-and-run accident that killed a Durham bicyclist Saturday night on North Roxboro Street north of Chateau Road near the Old Farm neighborhood.

Officers were sent to the call shortly before 8:30 p.m. They found a man lying in the southbound lanes of North Roxboro Street. A damaged bicycle was located nearby. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police identified the man as (Victim), 56, of Durham.

Here’s the victim’s criminal record.


He only got out of prison in June after serving a little over 6 years on two counts of First Degree Burglary and two of Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon. So he was convicted of what in other states is called “Home Invasion.”

§ 14-51.  First and second degree burglary.

There shall be two degrees in the crime of burglary as defined at the common law. If the crime be committed in a dwelling house, or in a room used as a sleeping apartment in any building, and any person is in the actual occupation of any part of said dwelling house or sleeping apartment at the time of the commission of such crime, it shall be burglary in the first degree. If such crime be committed in a dwelling house or sleeping apartment not actually occupied by anyone at the time of the commission of the crime, or if it be committed in any house within the curtilage of a dwelling house or in any building not a dwelling house, but in which is a room used as a sleeping apartment and not actually occupied as such at the time of the commission of the crime, it shall be burglary in the second degree. For the purposes of defining the crime of burglary, larceny shall be deemed a felony without regard to the value of the property in question. (1889, c. 434, s. 1; Rev., s. 3331; C.S., s. 4232; 1969, c. 543, s. 1.)

None of this means he should have been run over in the street, but I’d be interested to know how the incident occurred.

The real War on Women

Outside the Beltway this is what an actual war on women looks like.

Two Goldsboro men have been charged with sexual assault in Smithfield after they posted the attack online, according to police chief Michael Scott.

Investigators think the men may have used a date rape drug to sexually assault a 26-year-old woman they met at a party on Sept. 5. The woman called police after viewing the assault on a social media site, Scott said in a press release.

And what sort of person thinks it’s a good idea to drug and rape a woman, film it, and then post the video on “a social media site”?

Suspect 2

Just exactly the people you think would do something like this.

Hiding a gun in her weave

I had no idea that long hair was so versatile.

A woman arrested during a raid on a downtown Raleigh nightclub faces additional charges after authorities at the Wake County Detention Center found a gun in her hair weave after her arrest.

And who carries a gun in her weave?


Yet the gun haters want to blame people like you and me for “gun violence.”

Shining lasers at helicopters

Who does this?

A federal grand jury in Raleigh indicted a Brunswick County man Wednesday on a charge that he intentionally aimed a laser pointer at a helicopter in flight.

Blinding pilots while they’re flying an aircraft is just stupid


He seems to have a problem following the law.
