Operation Stop Arm Results

Highway Patrol ended its Operation Stop Arm campaign on Friday, Oct. 22, and we have the results of that campaign which began on Monday, Oct. 18.  Operation Stop Arm focused on promoting traffic safety around North Carolina schools, school buses and school bus stops.  During the week long enforcement, troopers followed more than 1,200 school buses across the state to remind motorists of the dangers that exist in and around school buses and school zones. Troopers issued 24 citations to motorists who failed to stop for a school bus. It is estimated that each school day, more than 2,000 drivers violate North Carolina’s school bus stop arm law. In addition, troopers issued over 8,000 traffic and criminal violations statewide including:  over 1,000 Seatbelt Violations, 118 Child Safety Seat Violations, and over 3,000 Speeding Violations.

Theft of Medication

A North Wilkesboro woman has reported the theft of some medication to the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Department.  The prescription medication was taken from her home.  There is suspect and charges are pending.  As 3WC News reported earlier this month in a similar case,  Fred Brason with the Wilkes County Prescription Drug Task Force reminds us that Wilkes County has a problem with prescription drug abuse.  In fact, Wilkes County is still 3 in the country for overdoses from prescriptions drugs.  Therefore, we should take precautions to safeguard our prescription medications.  Brason also said that it is important to properly dispose of unused medicines by mixing them with coffee grounds before putting the medicine in the trash.

Seriously...More Funny Money

The latest incident with funny money happened at the Fast Track on Winkler Street in Wilkesboro Monday night.  Police were called when the clerk realized a 100 dollar bill someone was using to pay for a bottle of Sunkist was counterfeit.  The person passing the fake bill was asked to stay until police arrived and she did.  Police questioned her as to where she had received the counterfeit.  They are currently following up leads in that investigation.  Wilkesboro Police also investigated two incidents Sunday.  Early Sunday morning, police were called to Oakwoods BP due to a couple of fake 20-dollar bills.  Two white males came in and used to money to pay for gas and other items.  Police are currently reviewing the surveillance video from the BP to determine the identity of the two passing the counterfeit twenties.  Then in a traffic check Sunday afternoon on Old Moravian Road, Wilkesboro Police arrested Gregory Cockerham of  Purlear on multiple counts including outstanding non-support warrant and having a counterfeit 100 dollar bill in his possession.
