Police pursuit ends in arrest

Greensboro police arrested Raymond Jones, 21, Cal Drumgoole, 18, and a juvenile suspect after responding to a breaking-and-entering call in the Rehobeth Oaks Court area around 3 p.m. on Sept. 16. Officers spotted the suspects’ vehicle as it was leaving the area, and unsuccessfully attempted a stop. A pursuit of 2.7 miles ended when a Greensboro police officer intercepted the suspects’ vehicle. Two of the suspects fled the vehicle and were apprehended in a wooded area in the 2300 block of Pinecroft Road. The third suspect was apprehended inside the vehicle. No injuries to officers or suspects were reported, according to police reports.

Two men in a loud, red pickup

Two late-night attempted armed robberies on Sept. 21 in Greensboro appear to share a common thread — a black male with dreadlocks driving a red pickup truck with a loud muffler, brandishing a handgun and demanding money. Paul Radcliffe, 22, advised Greensboro police officers that he was standing in front of 506 Warren St. when two suspects in a red pickup truck pulled up. The driver, described as a black male with a light complexion and dreadlocks, brandished a handgun and demanded money. Radcliffe told the suspects he didn’t have any money, and they fled the scene headed towards Spring Garden Street. On the same night, Jason Copping, a pizza delivery driver, told police he was sitting in his vehicle in the 800 block of Granite Street when a red pickup truck with a loud muffler pulled up next to him. The driver of the pickup brandished a handgun and said, “I know you have the money.” Copping drove off as the suspect fired a shot into his vehicle. No injuries were reported in either incident.
