Drugs in jail

Guilford County sheriff’s deputies apparently caught wind of a plan to smuggle drugs into the county jail earlier this month. Deputies made three arrests. Inmate Jacquin Kente Headen, 30, of Siler City, was charged with conspiracy to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of a controlled substance within a jail. His girlfriend, 21-year-old Monique Marsh, also of Siler City, was charged with conspiracy to sell and deliver marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver Percocet and other related charges. A second inmate, 23-year-old Joshua Oiley Mitchell, of Greensboro, was charged with conspiracy to sell and deliver marijuana.

A sex offender named Dick

Greensboro police arrested Jeremy Fitzgerald Dick, 45, and charged him with indecent exposure on Dec. 10. Police offered no detail about the circumstances of the alleged crime, but said Dick was also charged with 32 counts of being on property occupied by children as a registered sex offender stemming from a 2002 conviction for indecent liberties with a minor. The police note that the alleged incident of indecent exposure did not take place on school grounds or in the presence of children.

Baby’s burns lead to arrest

Greensboro police arrested Murlene Watson, 27, and charged her with felony child abuse inflicting serious injury and contributing to the neglect of a child on Dec. 9. Police report that the charges resulted from an investigation that began earlier this month after officers learned about an 8-week old baby that turned up at a local hospital with suspicious burns. The police continue to investigate.
