The best and worst of Triad police blotters, as compiled
TAKING GOD’S GOLD
Winston-Salem police charged Rose Hinson with embezzling $4,000 from St. Benedicts the Moor Catholic Church on Monday. Hinson is accused of taking the money out of the church’s special activity fund checking account over a nine-month period while she was acting as a volunteer treasurer. Hinson was released on a written promise to appear.
CIGARETTES ARE ADDICTIVE
Greensboro police reported that a man who implied he had a handgun robbed the Pop Shoppe on Summit Avenue, leaving with “an undetermined amount of money and cigarettes” on Jan. 25 around 11 p.m. The police press release doesn’t say what brand of smokes the suspect preferred. Nobody was harmed and the investigation to identify the smoker, who fled in a black SUV, is ongoing.
SHERIFF: HEAVY DID IT
The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office announced that a second suspect, a 41-year old who is colloquially known as “Heavy,” was arrested in connection with the Bank of America robbery that happened in Pleasant Garden on Jan. 14. Heavy, also known as Orlando Jones, was arrested at Country Hearth Inn in Columbia, SC in a multi-agency law enforcement effort last week. The press release did not say what Heavy is being charged with, but we imagine they’ll be hefty.
MISSING HIGH POINT TEEN
Detectives with the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office are looking for Dorien Daymon Jackson, a High Point teenager who has been missing since Jan. 10. Jackson, who is 18, doesn’t have a vehicle and is thought to be frequenting the Five Points area in High Point. Jackson is 5-foot-9-inches, 130 pounds, black and has brown eyes and black hair. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective DK Jones at 336-641-5968.
