The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue — Edward R Murrow
The state Division of Motor Vehicles suspended or disciplined 14 people following an internal investigation into gifts provided by a vendor, officials announced Friday.
The Roanoke Avenue Business Alliance will work with the city’s Planning and Development Department to find regulations where merchants can display their merchandise outside in a manner acceptable to all.
The Weldon Police Department reported the following:
• Anthony Jerome Gray of the Pleasant Hill area was arrested on July 13 by Sergeant Will Shaw when police received an anonymous tip from a concerned neighbor. Captain James Avens said Gray knocked out a window and was found in the garage when officers arrived and was charged with breaking and entering and damage to property.
He was jailed on $1,000 bond.
“I would like to encourage citizens to not hesitate in calling for suspicious activities that go on in their neighborhoods. I would like to personally thank the anonymous caller that was concerned enough to make the call,” Avens said.
• Marcus Wayne Hardy of the Roanoke Rapids area was arrested on July 16 by Shaw after being stopped in a vehicle for speeding that lead to a drug arrest.
Hardy had marijuana and hydrocodone pills.
He received a $100 unsecured bond.
