Stolen From Locked Vehicle by Defeating Alarm

Somehow the car break-in thieves were able to disable the car alarms.  One victim from North Wilkesboro originally reported that nothing was taken just the vehicle rummaged through. Then when a Deputy arrived to investigate, the victim saw some of his property in the grass near his house.  He returned to his vehicles to look again.  At that time he saw that a level, big key ring, camera, and some change were stolen from his Jeep which was unlocked. Both his F150 and Yukon which have alarms were locked. Somehow the suspect got into those vehicles while they were locked and did not set off the alarm. Whatever they did to defeat the alarm and get into the vehicles, messed up his key fob.  The key fob will no longer work, and he can only open the vehicle using a key.

Connect NC Website

Recently, Governor Pat McCrory launched a new website about the Connect NC bond proposal. “This site will serve as a central point for our citizens to learn about our plan to connect North Carolina through statewide investments in transportation, public health, education, parks and our military,” said Governor McCrory. Connect NC is the Governor’s $2.85 billion bond proposal for strategic investments in our state’s transportation and other public infrastructure that will cultivate a stronger economy and improve North Carolina’s quality of life. Because the state economy is strong and growing, there is ample credit capacity to borrow and repay the bonds with no tax increase.  For more information on the Connect NC bond proposal visit www.connect.nc.gov.

Foxx Votes For R&D Tax Credit

Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., last week voted in favor of legislation that would simplify and make permanent the research and development tax credit.  “For over 30 years, companies large and small have taken advantage of the R&D tax credit to foster innovation and keep America competitive. However, the uncertainty surrounding the credit’s annual extension has ultimately restricted the amount of research and development that companies undertake,” said Foxx.  H.R. 880, the American Research and Competitiveness Act of 2015, passed the House by a vote of 274-145.

Arrests have been made regarding an investigation that began back in 2011.  This week, two people at Pipedreams in Wilkesboro were arrested for selling synthetic marijuana.  According to the Wilkesboro Police report, the investigation into the business began back in November 2011 after they were contacted by North Wilkesboro PD regarding an overdose on illegal synthetic marijuana purchased at Pipedreams.  In 2012, two juveniles were found to have made a purchase of synthetic marijuana from the business.  In July of 2012, a search warrant was issued on Pipedreams.  Narcotics Investigators with Wilkesboro and North Wilkesboro police departments seized 664 packages of the product that was sent to the SBI for testing.  Recently, the SBI results were received and warrants were obtained for drug trafficking.  Mr. Christopher Staggs and Mrs. Bonnie Staggs of Pipedreams were arrested.  Charges included Trafficking Synthetic Cannabinoids, Maintaining a Dwelling to Sell a Controlled Substance, and Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver.  Both were taken to the Wilkes County Jail with a $15,000 bond, and their court date is set for June 17.
