Busted: Best of the Blotters

Trailer park, child porn-sharing operation Kevin Rogers Austin, a 60-year-old resident of Oakwood Forest mobile home park outside of Greensboro, made the mistake of sharing “numerous graphic images of child pornography” during an online interaction with an undercover agent in Colorado Springs, Colo., according to a press release from the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office seized Austin’s computers, arrested the man and placed him in the Guilford County jail under a $65,000 bond. Not that hungry, we’d rather have the cash Two unidentified suspects, both described as black men, reportedly entered the Hungry Howie’s Pizza store on West Friendly Avenue in Greensboro on Oct. 28 and demanded that the clerks give them money. Police described the first man as 6-foot-2, weighing 180 pounds with a light complexion and splotches on his face, a goatee and receding hair. The other man, who was reportedly armed with a gun, was described as weighing about 240 pounds with a dark complexion, wearing a black jacket with white lettering, a black bandanna covering his face. Police said the two men fled heading west down Madison Avenue behind Ham’s restaurant with an undisclosed amount of money. Late breaking report Jose Vasquez, 23, reported that he was leaving El Paraiso on High Point and returning to his vehicle parked behind CitiFinancial on Oct. 2 when two black males approached him with handguns and demanded his money. Vasquez reported the alleged incident on Monday, in which he said he was struck on the nose and the side of the head and robbed of his cash before one of the men fired a round into his vehicle. Armed Robbery The Greensboro Police Department ID’d Ibn Mufeeo Dixon, 18, as being involved in an armed robbery at Anna’s Linens on High Point Road in late June. Police said Dixon discharged his weapons at a victim during the incident. Dixon was reportedly arrested without incident at his home on Halloween, transported to the Guilford County jail, and placed under a $100,000 bond. Gotta have that flat screen Two unidentified black males dressed in black, one of whom wore a ski mask, reportedly kicked in the door at an apartment on Village Lane in Greensboro on Nov. 1. The three victims — two males and one female — reported that the men made them lie face down on the floor, and then stole a flat-screen television and cash before fleeing the apartment.

Masked men punch woman during robbery Barbara Sue Ostler, 54, was attempting to make a night deposit at SunTrust Bank on High Point Road in Greensboro at about 9:40 p.m. on Monday when two unidentified males wearing masks approached her on foot. Ostler reported that the men punched her several times in the face, grabbed the money and her purse and fled on foot. Greensboro Police Department canine units reportedly tracked the men to Anson Road, where police believe they jumped into a vehicle. Ostler was reportedly treated at the scene by EMS, but not hospitalized.
