People who know me know that I have a special dislike for “confidence men.” It takes a special level of sleazy to lie to another person’s face to take their money.
Police are on the hunt again for two men arrested and charged last week with running several “flim-flam” schemes in recent months.
Read the story to get a flavor of their scams.
It’s people like these who make me wish we could bring back public flogging.
You’re supposed to stop if you hit someone with your car. You know, stick around until the cops get there to take your statement.
A 20-year-old woman was in serious condition at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh on Tuesday morning, and a 23-year-old man was charged with felony hit-and-run and driving without a license after a car struck a motor scooter Monday afternoon.
Wonder why this guy didn’t offer assistance or wait for the police?
Because he doesn’t like complying with the rules?
Halloween morning and this clown is out shooting people.
A man is being held at the Gaston County Jail on a $500,000 bond after he was arrested in connection with a shooting on Halloween.
Who does that?
Why is this guy even out on the street? He’s already been convicted once for Felon in Possession. He was eligible for federal Felon in Possession charges then, but he got a year and four months in State prison instead.
Oh, I get it. Gun laws aren’t for use against criminals. They are only there to harass people like you and me.
He was quite a busy thief
Police on Sunday accused a 24-year-old man of a dozen burglaries going back to August, all at small businesses and most involving the theft of cigarettes.
So who did they arrest?
He just got out of prison for Felon in Possession. Note, however, that he originally only got probation for Felon in Possession and Felony Breaking and Entering. This makes a mockery of the idea that we have a justice system. He’s a felon with a gun and he only gets probation?
Update: They’ve arrested a second person
A second man is facing felony charges in connection with a dozen business break-ins in Raleigh in recent months.
And who is this accomplice?
We need to get a cell for the two of them. Preferably one that’s located below the high tide line.
Seems someone is trying to make a career out of stealing.
Police on Thursday evening charged a man with a string of Thursday morning break-ins at stores along Southern Village’s Market Street, which is where they arrested him.
Why do I say that it looks like he’s trying to make it a career?
Because he was just convicted of similar charges a few months ago.
How many burglaries has he gotten away with in between the ones where he got caught?
Durham, NC is a violent place. Compared to Raleigh, Durham seems like Dodge City.
Police have announced an arrest in the fatal shooting this week of a 22-year-old man in a neighborhood just east of downtown.
So, was it a crazed Concealed Handgun Permit holder who escalated a simple disagreement to murder?
Or was is just another violent criminal committing more violent crime?
A terrible end to a domestic argument. At least this time no one is blaming the husband.
Investigators were able to retrace part of (Victim)’s night after she got into a fight with her husband on Halloween and left their home in Denver.
At some point she met up with two women and a man and was seen at several places, including a gas station to purchase beer and the East End Bar in neighboring Catawba County.
The police charge that she was either thrown or pushed out of her own truck by the people she was with. They found her dead in the road.
Suspect 1 was the driver and is charged with 2nd Degree Murder, but claims it was all an accident. Somehow I doubt that dumping the truck into a pond was an accident.
I feel for the husband. I don’t often argue with my wife, but there have been times when she felt the need to “take a walk.” How awful would it be for her to never come back?
