Sgt. A.W. Finch responded to Rolling Acres Road in reference to a larceny of firearms.

A Ruger Creednoor hunting rifle, valued at $650, and a Vortex Viper Rifle Scope, valued at $900 were taken from his pick up truck.

The victim locked the truck up with the gun in it after he returned from hunting. The next morning the weapon was missing.

The victim who is not local but was staying with a friend in Skippers, spoke with everyone who had been in the home but no one had seen his gun or seen anything unusual. The case is under investigation.

A Jarrratt business reported to Deputy C. E. Rose and Deputy Brown that Stephen Montreal Moye of Garysburg, N.C., an employee, could possibly be in possession of a firearm. Moye is a convicted felon.

More was searched by deputies and found to have a Glock 27 .60 caliber gun in his pants pocket. He was arrested for possession of a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm after being a convicted felon. He was held at Southside Regional Jail without bond.

Detective L.B. Lion responded to Moonlight Road and made contact with a victim who reported that she noticed her back door was open and there was visible damage to it. Lion and Lt. Shawn Powell cleared the residence. The door frame was destroyed (value $250) and a 50-inch television were taken valued at $1,600. The case is under investigation.

Deputy Kevin Hines responded to a residence for a report of a scam. She said she received a voice mail saying that a lawsuit was filed against her by the United States and gave her a phone number to call for more information before it is sent to the courthouse.

The deputy called the number. A man with a heavy accent answered saying Internal Revenue Service.

Hines identified himself and said he was calling in reference to call made to a local resident. Silence. Apparently the man was left speechless and would not say anything until the call was disconnected. The case is still under investigation.

Deputy D.L. Brown responded to Scottsdale Drive. According to the victim Ricky Nicholson came to her residence and broke her window, then kicked in her front door and came into the house and struck her on the face. An active protective order was in place. A witness was at the home when it occurred.

Nicholson was charged with breaking and entering with intent to assault and batter, malicious bodily injury, violating a protective order to commit assault and battery, intentional damage value less than $1,000 and assault and batter of a family member. He was held in Southside Regional Jail without bond.

Deputy S.L. Moore took a report of a stolen vehicle. The car, a 200 Cadillac Deville, was stolen from Milestone Rd.

Five days later Deputy L. Bullock responded to Robinson Lane in reference to a vehicle that was parked at the end of the road. It was the car that had been reported stolen. Evidence was recovered and sent to be tested. The case is under investigation.
