RRPD blotter: September 26-29

The Roanoke Rapids Police Department reported the following, according to Chief Chuck Hasty:

The Roanoke Valley Southern Christian Leadership Conference is one of the groups leading a push for a supplemental school tax which its administration believes will provide equitable funding for the Halifax County School system.

Supporters of a supplemental school tax for the Halifax County School system say those leading an effort to fight the measure, which will be on the November 8 ballot, have misrepresented how much would be requested should the referendum pass.

Fighting which began Wednesday night and carried over to Thursday night have led to arrests and continued investigation by the Roanoke Rapids Police Department.
