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

On Friday at approximately 1:30 p.m., Lieutenant P. Parks served outstanding warrants on Wanda Regina Tyrone, 52, of Halifax, for obtaining property by false pretense after she came to the police department to take care of the warrant.

The charges stem from an investigation into a report filed on March 22 by Master Officer G. Morris where the victim reported Tyrone had a contract to buy items. While Tyrone received the items she reportedly didn’t pay for them and subsequently pawned them.

She received a $3,000 bond and April 4 court date.


On Sunday at approximately 11 a.m., Officer R. Cross conducted a traffic stop on Highway 158 and Roanoke Avenue for a narcotics investigation.  

The driver, Melissa Lynn Hardison, 24, of Roanoke Rapids, was found in possession of narcotics.

Cross arrested and charged Hardison with possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

She received a $2,500 bond and May 4 court date.

Master Officer A. Salmon and Officer M. Worrell assisted.
