Chief Chuck Hasty of the Roanoke Rapids Police Department today sent out a correction to a Tuesday blotter entry.

The police department erroneously reported in the roundup Kenji Mason was arrested following a Monday search warrant execution.

It should have said Kenji Garner, 36, of Roanoke Rapids, was arrested and charged.

rrspin.com has changed the name in the Tuesday report.

Meanwhile, Hasty reported the following:

On Tuesday at approximately noon, narcotics investigators J. Hardy and C. Babb conducted a traffic stop for a violation on Southgate Drive.
