Hiding guns in the kid’s room

I usually skip all drug crimes, mostly because I don’t think they should be crimes. But I’m making an exception for this one because of what else they got him for.

Police say a Henderson man kept a loaded gun in the bedroom of a child under 16, next to snacks and candy, in the same southeast Raleigh house that the man facing charges was maintaining to sell cocaine and marijuana.

Now the gun grabbers tell us that if only there was a law that made it a crime to allow children access to firearms, the world would be happy and joyful again.


What about the law that says people like him can’t have guns either? If they can’t enforce that one, what makes them think they can demand the rest of us keep our guns under lock and key?

Family Values

This is a terrible thing to do to anyone, and especially bad to do it to family.

Police in Greenville have arrested a man who they say robbed his own brother at knifepoint.

Domestic violence?


Or just another criminal being a criminal to everyone around him?

Up on charges for murder, he solicits another murder

Why would anyone conspire with criminals?

A man in Union County, who is already in jail and previously accused of two murders, was charged with criminal solicitation for attempting to pay two fellow inmates to murder a witness in his upcoming trial, officials say.

Seriously? Two other inmates, who have every reason to rat you out so they can get a better deal and you’re going to try to contract a murder with them?


His other specialties include arson, blowing things up, Insurance Fraud, and driving drunk in other states.

She loves to run

And not in that healthy, let’s get some exercise way.

Police say a Jacksonville woman fleeing from them during a traffic stop this week caused a widespread power outage after her vehicle crashed into a transformer.

(Suspect) was speeding on Henderson Drive near Jacksonville High School at about 1:57 p.m. Wednesday and continued traveling after officers tried to initiate a traffic stop, according to a JPD release. She turned left on Gum Branch Road, losing control of her vehicle and striking guide wires for a Jones-Onslow Electric Membership Corporation Member power pole, the release stated.

(Suspect) ran after the car stopped, entering three nearby private residences and allegedly assaulting a resident at one of those homes, according to the release. She was taken into custody by the Jacksonville Police Department at 2:03 p.m., according to Purcell.

And she’s no stranger to this exact crime


She isn’t going to change.

Carjacker wanted

No, it’s not a help wanted ad.

A man is wanted by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police for his connection to two local carjackings, according to police.

Who are they looking for?


Kinda figured.

Tips lead to arrest

Stealing trail cameras? What are they thieves or anti-hunting activists?

Two men were arrested and charged for stealing cameras in east Lincoln County with help from the public, police said.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said it got over 30 calls from the public helping to identify the suspects after. The calls came in response to a news release the office posted online about theft of cameras on a private road off N.C. 73.

In any case, they’re jammed up now.

Suspect 1

Suspect 2


Don’t ride with strangers

Sometimes it’s better to just walk.

The two suspects had provided the victim of the robbery with a ride to the Crismark subdivision saying they were going to a party, the victim told investigators.

But after arriving to the area, one of the suspects pulled out a gun in the vehicle and ordered the victim to hand over their phone and money. Sheriff Eddie Cathey said the suspects had pistol-whipped the victim and abandoned them at the side of the road.

And who have they arrested for this?

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

They seem like wonderful people!

Jailbird gets arrested again in jail

It’s never a good sign when the cops show up at the county jail to hand you charges from a new crime.

(Suspect), who has been held on robbery charges since mid-December, was accused Tuesday of first-degree kidnapping and first-degree rape in a Dec. 8 attack on a 19-year-old woman in Raleigh.

What do you think, did they take his DNA and get a match?


I keep this segment going each week just to remind you that people don’t change much. They don’t randomly start committing crimes. Crime is a pattern of behavior and only rarely a one-off bad decision.

Rival dealer or angry father?

We can’t be having people shot down in the streets of Durham. It’s just not hygienic.

Police, called to investigate gunshots, found a 30-year-old man dead in the street in the 900 block of East Main Street early Tuesday.

I know which angles I’d be looking at in this case.


I’d probably focus on the drug angle.

Fourty-Eight felonies

But he’ll be out of prison soon, I’m sure.

State Capitol Police arrested (Suspect) 36, of Knightdale Tuesday, in connection with the vandalism of 65 state-owned vehicles and the theft of 23 gas fleet credit cards during September and October 2014, police said.

(Suspect) is charged with 48 separate felonies for breaking and entering vehicles, financial card thefts, and misuse and burning of personal property.

The financial costs are very serious.


It seems that the only thing that’s changed in his life is that he’s gotten bolder.
