Crime picks up on North Carolina border / December 09, 2010
Just as stores get busier near Christmas, so too, apparently, do thieves.

Steve Cassada says neighboring North Carolina counties are seeing more residential break-ins near the Halifax border, and that deputy patrols have been stepped up in that vicinity.

Cassada also reminds citizens not to leave packages or purses in view inside their vehicles. Instead, lock them in the trunk when the vehicle is unattended, he advises.

“That might prevent some broken side glasses and unhappy shoppers,” he added.

In recent police activity:

n On December 6, Halifax Town Police Officer W. G. Yancey served assault and battery warrants on 25-year-old Raekeish Guy, 43-year-old Delores Plenty, 26-year-old Kora Canada and 22-year-old Brandy Plenty, all of Halifax. Each warrant was related to a single incident that occured earlier that evening.

n On December 8 at about 1 a.m., Yancey investigated a single-vehicle collision at the water tower on Houston Street in Halifax. According to his report, a 2007 Chevrolet operated by 29-year-old Bobbie Lee Richardson of Halifax was traveling north on Houston Street when the driver hit the gas instead of the brake. The vehicle then ran off the right side of the road, striking a concrete block, before crossing the road and coming to rest at the base of the town water tower.

Officer Yancey advised there were no injuries and estimated damages to Richardson’s vehicle at $4,000. Richardson was charged with DUI and driving without a license.

n Sheriff’s Department Investigator Mike Womack is looking into the theft of a riding lawn mower from Katherine Boxley, of 3204 Union Church Road, South Boston. Sometime since Nov. 21, Boxley’s yellow and black Poulan mower was stolen from a shed in her yard.
