Two shooting incidents have law enforcement investigators from Monroe and the sheriff’s office comparing notes.

Monroe Police said that they responded to a report of gunfire on Maury St at around 10:30pm and received 911 calls of someone shooting into a home.

Police said that several rounds were fired into the dwelling and possibly a vehicle parked in the driveway. Police checked the area for the suspects.

A short time later, the Union County sheriff’s office also received a call of a shooting incident and a motorist advised deputies that a person in another vehicle fired a gun at him. Deputies determined that the incident may have also occurred in the city limits of Monroe and turned the investigation over to city police.

Investigators are still working on the incidents and are not sure if they are connected.

Union County NC May 26 2009

By: Rick McCannDUI

The Memorial Day week-end is tradionally the kick-off to the summer for most Americans. It means food, fun, vactions and unfortunately, an increase in drinking and driving.

This week-end in Union County proved that to be true as many residents were relaxing and enjoying their three day holiday week-end, police through-out the county were busy protecting us as they looked for drunk drivers and kept our roads safer.

By Monday night, officers with all of the town police departments, sheriff’s office and Monroe city police were able to arrest 20 DUI drivers and issue dozens of other citations for various driving offenses. Those numbers seemed to be a bit higher than last year an officer said, but he wasn’t sure how many arrests were made in 2008.

Numerous accidents were also reported, several with serious injuries but at this time no traffic related deaths have been reported during the 72 hour period.

(Those arrested have been posted in the Arrest Log post)

Monroe NC. May 26 2009329181003

By: Rick McCann

City police officers responded to assist an assault victim late Monday night but soon found out that there was more to the call than first appeared.

Police said that they were called to 531 W. Roosevelt Blvd. by a female who stated that she had been assaulted. When officers arrived on scene the male suspect took off and tried to flee but was rapidly apprehended.

While police were investigating the alleged assault, officers checked the vehicle that the pair had been driving and found that it had been reported stolen in Lancaster South Carolina.

Police arrested Kristin Lee Thomas, 27, and  Christopher Lavander Williams,  34,  and charged both with Possession of Stolen Goods. Williams was additionally charged with communicating threats. 

The owner of the vehicle was notified that their vehicle had been recovered and police booked the two suspects into the county jail.

RALEIGH NC May 26 20097d483816ffaf238a  If you’re one of hundreds of Union County residents who love riding ATV’s, you may soon have to pay for that pleasure.

State lawmakers are considering a bill to register all off-road vehicles, and the bill could soon pass.

 Sen. Eddie Goodall, R-Union. said that “it’s just ridiculous,”  . “That’s just adding a burden.”

But,  Sen. Doug Berger, D-Franklin doesn’t see it that way and he has authored the bill.  

The bill, Senate Bill 642, would require any all-terrain vehicle like a four-wheeler or dirt bike manufactured in 2005 or later be registered like any on-road car. The license plates would look different, but the registration process would be the same. The Division of Motor Vehicles estimates there are 100,000 vehicles that would be registered in the first year, and about 25,000 more in each of the following four years.

One of the reasons for the bill, according to Goodall, was to stop riders, especially minors, from trespassing on neighboring properties and damaging the land. Goodall understood that, but said it was unrealistic to think that a small license tag would end that.

Area law enforcment said they do get calls of ATV’ss trespassing and going places that they shouldn’t but wouldn’t weigh in on the bill debate.

During a Senate discussion on the bill, Goodall brought in a sample license plate to demonstrate how hard it would be to read the letters or numbers; to him, it was far more likely that the rider would be recognized first.

“How in the world, if you can’t see and recognize the person riding it, are you going to see and remember a four-by-seven license tag?” he said.

Goodall also pointed to the cost as a deterrent to passing the law. According to a financial impact report by the fiscal research department, the law would add $98,527 in spending the first year and $118,082 by the fifth year. Goodall then added the impact cost; 100,000 people spending two hours at the DMV losing $15 in average wages equals $3 million lost, he reasoned.

“That’s just a huge cost,” said Goodall.

The bill was referred to a Senate Finance Committee last week. It was not yet scheduled to be heard on the floor.

Monroe police went from house to house in search of drug suspects early Friday after investigators worked  weeks making drug buys and conducting surveillance on known dealers.

 Police said that they were looking for more than 26 suspects and that they would be out tracking them down for several days.

One man, Rodney  Massey was pulled out of an attic where he was hiding on Maurice Street. He is charged with distributing drugs just down the street from a daycare. He faces extra drug charges for allegedly selling cocaine within 1,000 feet of the facility. 

 He’s accused of selling cocaine near children.”That’s how close it is to your kids, regardless if it’s a daycare. The kids are on their bikes riding by these people and it’s that accessible, so they need to be off the streets,” said Sgt. T.J. Goforth of the Monroe Police Department.

Police said Massey is one of several repeat drug dealers that detectives have spent weeks building their case against.

Detectives said they showed up at Antonio Blount’s house to find him smoking pot.

“It’s the war on drugs one street corner at a time,” Goforth said.

 The City of Monroe and Union County has been seeing an increase in drug activity including distribution of crack cocaine, tar heroin and pot said one detective. We’ll just keep at it doing the best we can he said.

 In all the wanted suspects face nearly 120 felony drug charges.

A petting zoo with an array of farm animals was set up over the week-end in the area of the Wal-Mart in Monroe.

Goats and turtle, turkey and camel gave city dwellers a look and feel of what the country life was like. Children of all ages laughed and petted the animals and happily shared ice cream cones filled with pet food.

A pony ride  also gave children a chance at riding their first horse and saying giddy up!
