Union County NC June 23 2009100_0894

PART ONE

Long term and extended stay type motels in the county and nationwide have long been the recipients of complaints by guests who say rooms are dirty, walls are stained and mildewed, carpets moldy and furniture in conditions far worse than that of any second hand store. Many of these area hotels and are ill-maintained, some are crime ridden, showing not only their age but a blatant disregard by their owners to comply with standard health and safety standards, regulations and state laws that govern their business.

Often times such motels, even those proclaiming to be the best in their business offer little to no customer service, very limited housekeeping services, only part time on property management and no security coverage while charging rates that are not much lower than those of better run franchised hotels.

Numerous weekly and monthly rate motels have lined Highway 74 also known as Roosevelt Blvd in Monroe and Independence Blvd heading east into Charlotte for decades. Many of their customers have been the working poor or the homeless,  truck drivers, others who have domestic family troubles looking for shelter, criminals including prostitutes and drug addicts and others who have no place else to go.

But in the past year, the faces of those staying at such places have changed and families with young children are cramped into one room trying to survive during these hard economic times. Some have had homes foreclosed on, vehicles repossessed, incomes stripped from them and with little or no savings, and a limited support system, they have found themselves in these same unbearable conditions living among the mold and the drug dealers, the uncaring hotel management and the blight that they now must call home.

Still, even with the new influx of new customers, including many infants and children, these hotels do little more than collect the rent. Most properties do not even supply towels, toilet tissue or the normal items that guests of most hotels are accustomed to having as part of their stay. Management is poor, maintenance even worse.

We have uncovered several problems with both InTown Suites located on HWY 74 in the county. On one property, more than half of their room’s reeks of mold and mildew, mattress are old and stained, some covered with mold, and garbage left piled high in dumpsters for days on end. One guest showed us a leaking toilet that management refused to repair even though sewage water was seeping from under the bowl covering the floor and needing to be wiped up almost hourly. Another room had a heavy mold build up on its walls and carpet and for more than a year a man and wife was left to breathe the contaminated air and soon developed a severe skin condition causing itchiness, scratching, bleeding and irritation for months before the man could afford to go to a doctor’s office for medication.

Similar room conditions have been reported at both the Knights Inn and Value Inns, and other hotels in Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville, and other areas in between. Honest hard working families living in these are too often ignored by hotel staff and unprotected by current laws.

An Economy Inn located in south Atlanta had rooms that we were beyond livable. Carpet and furniture coated with mildew and mold, cigarette burns in the carpet and stained sheets. Updates and repairs to the property not done for at least twenty years.

While it would be easy for some of us to say just don’t stay at these Inns, for some folks, they really have no choice. With limited income and a system that is frequently blind to the needs of the truly down and out, these type of motels will continue to be open for business and free to take advantage of the poor working class while providing bare bone services, disgusting rooms and conditions that are dangerous, unhealthy and risky in every way.

 Fairview NC June 19 200910556445_BG1    Authorities with the Union County Sheriff’s Office now say that they have made an arrest in the theft of close to $150,000 from the Fairview Fire Department.

  

William “Bill” Hinson, 51, is accused of writing a series of checks on the fire department’s checking account and then cashing them for his own personal use over a five year span.  Hinson served as the treasurer for the Fairview Fire Department for a number of years and had control of the department’s finances according to an investigator with the UCSO

The fire chief said that vendors began complaining that invoices and bills were not being paid and when he looked into things did not look right. That’s when he called in the Union County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Eddie Cathey expressed disappointment in the crimes. “The men and women of our fire departments work very hard for our personal safety in Union County. For a person to betray a position of public trust in this manner is unfortunate. We should remember these were the actions of an individual, and do not reflect on the character and reputation of a fire department that has faithfully served the members of the Fairview community for many years.”

There was no word on whether or not investigators recovered any of the money that was stolen.

Hinson was booked into the county jail and was later released on bond.

FAIRVIEW NC June 18 2009

The Union County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that they are investigating an alledged embezzlement from the Fairview Volunteer Fire Department.
According to a complaint filed with the sheriff’s department, Fairview Chief Wyatte McBryde stated that $102,000 is missing and reportedly stolen.
The Fairview Volunteer Fire Department is funded through a fire fee, paid by the residents in that fire district and governed by a local board that makes funding decisions. Volunteer fire departments also have independent fundraisers, but the fees generate the majority of their revenue.

According to an investigator, all money is collected by the county, which then sends a check to the volunteer fire departments and no one other than fire department officials have access to their banking accounts.
Our contact within the Sheriff’s Office said that the investigation has just begun and they did not have any further information on the missing funds but said that they have called in the State Bureau of Investigation to assist in the investigation.
The fire chief did not return phone calls but a Fairview firefighter said that he didn’t know anything about the money and had no other comments.

The exact amount of money missing is reported to be $102,415.51.
The sheriff’s report listed no suspects in the theft.

By: Rick McCann

City police responded to an armed robbery that happened on College St at around 11pm Friday.

According to police, three men armed with a shotgun held up a person and then fled as police were arriving in the area. An officer spotted a vehicle matching the description of the wanted men and pulled it over and that’s when one of the men holding a shotgun jumped from the vehicle and ran sparking an overnight manhunt for him.

Officers quickly surrounded the area and apprehended two of the suspects in the robbery. They have been identified as Jeffrey LouAllen and Michael DeWitt Ivey. Both have been charged with armed robbery and brought to the Union County detention center.

Monroe police was joined in the search for the third suspect by a Union County sheriff’s department K-9 team and the North Carolina Highway Patrol and searched the area along Jefferson St most of the night before calling it off in the early morning hours.

Investigators say they know who the third suspect is and are still looking for him.
