Family and friends of Major Larry Bauguess from Wilkes County gathered at Fort Bragg this morning for a ceremony in his honor. Bauguess was killed in 2007 while serving in Afghanistan. Major Bauguess was on a peace keeping mission when he was killed. Today the Major Larry J. Bauguess, Jr. Child Development Center at Fort Bragg was dedicated in his honor.


Man Reports Tires and Wheels Missing From Vehicle

Somebody apprently stole the tires and the wheels right off a vehcle. Wilkes County Sheriff's deputies say a Traphill man called them to say that he left his house around 6 p.m. on Sunday and his vehicle was fine, and intact. When he got home on Monday afternoon, the vehicle was sitting on cinder blocks. The man told deputies that the tires and wheels were missing from his vehicle. He said they were worth about 16 hundred dollars.


Warrant Out for Man Accused of Damage and Theft at Tyson

Wilkesboro police have made an arrest in that property damage and missing items case at Tyson Foods on Shavings Bin Road that we told you about earlier this month. This is the one where security at Tyson found four garage doors to a building by ramming them with one of the company's own trucks. Police have a warrant for 19 year old Edward Lowe of North Wilkesboro that charges him with felonious breaking and entering, felonious larceny and property damage.


Car Stolen in Millers Creek, Several Attempts Reported

Several people in the Miller's Creek area are dealing with damage to their cars from apparent attempts to steal the vehicles, while another man likely will not see his car again. Four reports of thefts or attempted thefts were taken by deputies in the Miller's Creek area on Monday, all apparently happening sometime overnight. Reynaldo Cantu's SUV, a brown 1987 Chevy Blazer, was stolen, and because the paperwork for the vehicle was in the glove compartment, there is no record of its ID number to trace. The thief may also have the ability to re-register the vehicle as if they had purchased it, if that was the intent. Deputies have no suspects in the theft so far.

Bill Roten reports two vehicles had the ignition switches either ripped out or damaged, in an apparent attempt to steal them. Latonya Sales reports the ignition on her Olds Alero was broken, and Caprice Williams says the hood of her Ford Mustang was keyed. A Ford Taurus belonging to Kathy Glasco was also found to have the ignition broken. All these crimes took place in either the 100 block of Joseph or the 200 block of Mary Lyn. Deputies have no suspects in any of the cases.


Big Screen TV Stolen

A suspect has been identified in the theft of a big-screen TV from a Wilkes home, but deputies are withholding the person's name during the continuing investigation. The break-in was reported Monday evening at Jospeh Houck's home in Moravian Falls. Either Sunday night or on Monday, Houck says a person tried to break in his front door and wasn't successful. The thief was successful breaking in the back door, however. Houck believes the break-in was in retaliation for a situation he'd been involved in earlier, which he explained to deputies. The TV is valued at $1,500.


Thieves Break Into Two Soda Machines

Wilkes county sheriff deputies are investigating another coin-operated vending machine break-in. Two machines were hit early Monday, outside the Run-In on Statesville Road and the IGA store. Deputies report the wire to the security camera at the Run-In had been cut, presumably by the thief or thieves, and that the camera at the IGA was not working. Both machines showed markings that they had been pried into from the side, and deputies suspect a key may have been used to open one or both of the drink machines. The thieves were apparently not interested in the contents of the machines other than the money. They hit one Coke machine and one Pepsi machine, causing about $500 damage to each. A total of about $45 was estimated to have been taken from the money boxes. Deputies report no suspects at this time.


North Iredell Middle Does Not Break Guinness Record

If you're going to go for the world record, then go for it! That's what North Iredell Middle School was trying to do when it tried to break the Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously doing the robot dance. Turns out, you can't just say you did it, Guinness is really strict about its records, you have to show it and video tape it. That's when they got nailed. Guinness officials said they could tell from the video that some of the students were not doing the robot dance. Guinness sent the school an email last week telling them that they had not achieved the record. About 500 students participated in the event in June.


CB Eller Third Graders See Planetarium Show Today

Third graders at CB Eller in Elkin will have an experience like no other today.
They'll get a chance to see the stars a lot closer than just looking up in the sky. The Morehead Planetarium will bring its portable planetarium to school today.

"We bring this inflatable igloo into the school's gymnasium and inflate it to a size that 24 students can climb inside. And then the planetarium show is projected on the ceiling of the dome as a 360 degree experience."

Karen Kornegy is with the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at UNC-Chapel Hill. She said students will get the chance to see a character they can relate to who can explain the moon, the stars and the sun in a way that third graders will get a real education.


WCSD Investigating Theft of Ribeye

Wilkes County deputies are investigating an unusual theft from the Holly Mountain IGA in North Wilkesboro. They say somebody went into the store and took more than 16 pounds of meat: a whole ribeye to be exact. The theft happened yesterday just before 3:30 p.m.


Charges Filed In Second Moped Fatal in a Week

Charges have been filed in the death of that second teen in the second moped crash on 421 in a week. Prosecutors said 19 year old Thomas Allen Nevens of Wilkesboro has been charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle and exceeding a safe speed. Nevens' Kia hit the moped that 17 year old Dakota Hendrix of Ferguson was driving. Hendrix died the next day at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Nevens told police at the scene that he did not see any lights on the moped, but a witness told them that the moped had lights on.
