FRIDAY QUICK HITS

Police make Arrest in Possible Gang Related Homicide

Greensboro Police were able to close a homicide investigation last week that has been going on since September 2014. Greensboro resident Moses Wilson, 34, of 3217 E. Orange St. was arrested without incident and charged in the murder of Michael Vandross and the attempted murder of Kenneth Lamont Munn. The Greensboro Police reported that they were able to arrest Wilson by obtaining evidence through interviews that went along with the events that transpired on the night of the murder. Police claim that Wilson and his victims knew each other but a motive has not been discovered. Police previously identified Munn as a gang member known as “Murder.” According to media reports from 1997, Munn was previously charged with killing a Greensboro music storeowner but the charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.While police reported the motive is unknown, it does appear that the shooting could be gang related. Earlier this year, several council members voiced their concerns about Greensboro’s gang problem and asked City Manager Jim Westmoreland to investigate reinstituting Greensboro’s Gang Unit. Glenwood and the Rec Center

Finally, an agreement between the Greater Glenwood Neighborhood Association (GGNA) and UNCG regarding the new recreation center has been made. It’s just a matter of getting it signed now.At the last GGNA meeting, an Addendum to the Memorandum of Understanding was passed by a vote of 5 to 1. According to the minutes from that meeting, the addendum “will become part of the original MOU and deals with the development of the UNCG Recreation Center.” The GGNA’s next move is to set up a meeting with UNCG so both parties can sign the agreement. UNCG Spokesperson Joe Gallehugh told YES! Weekly that a meeting date has not been made yet but the construction of the recreation center is on schedule. In the fall of 2013, media outlets reported that UNCG students would pay $707 a year in debt service fees to pay for the construction of six existing facilities and one planned building. That is the highest debt service in the UNC system.More than half of that fee will be for the student recreation center that UNCG is currently building on West Lee Street. The $91 million recreation center will be twice as big as the current recreation center. Massage Parlor plays the Aromatherapy/Recording Studio CardLast week YES! reported that an illegal massage parlor was operating on Westgate Drive. That very same day, Greensboro Police met with the Business License Office and paid the questionable establishment a visit. According to Greensboro’s Asst. Manager of the Collections Division Financial and Administrative Services, Richard Hawk, the owners of the business said they were not operating a massage parlor but were running a recording studio. Hawk advised them that they would need to obtain a business license before conducting business.On March 24, the owners reported to city officials that they would be operating an aromatherapy service and a recording studio. The notes of the case show that the owners of the massage parlor claimed their staff applied oils to customers without touching them. However, two days after they claimed they were a recording studio and an aromatherapy business, they posted an ad on Backpage that offered body slides by beautiful ladies in an erotic environment. The body slides were priced at $130 and hour and $80 for 30 minutes. They also posted the video below.http://greensboro.backpage.com/TherapeuticMassage/exotic-sensual-nuru-body-work/17583291#utm_campaign=video&utm_source=videosharelink&utm_medium=social
