Police Investigate Multi Layered Thefts

Okay, its not quite as long as Gone with the Wind, but this one reads like a novel! Wilkesboro Police got a call in late March from West Jefferson Police that they'd picked up Adam Porter on a warrant out of Wilkes County. When police took Porter into custody, he admitted that he and his sister had stolen several items and sold them for drug money. Police then went to a business in Wilkesboro where the items were sold and found numerous items that the business owner, Neal Hamad had allegedly stolen and was selling. A few days later they arrested Hamad and he agreed to turn himself in. When he did not, police went to the business and brought Hamad to the Wilkes County Detention Center. Police say the investigation into all the stolen items is ongoing as there are several victims in the case.

Triad Tornadoes Prompt Disaster Declarations

The tornadoes that ripped through Davidson and Guilford counties two weekends ago have prompted a state disaster declaration. Governor Perdue announced the declaration, which makes money availalbe to help pay for home repairs for families who incurred damage, today. In addition, the governor also received a U.S. Small Business Administration disaster declaration that makes low-interest loans available to help pay for repairs.

County, state and federal emergency management officials conducted a joint damage assessment on April 1. The teams reported more than 460 homes damaged in the two counties, 40 of which were destroyed. In addition, three businesses were destroyed and 18 more damaged in the same area. The SBA disaster declaration allows low-interest federal loans of up to $240,000 to home owners and up to $40,000 to renters. Those who do not qualify for the loans may be eligible for a state individual assistance grant.

The state disaster declaration means residents who suffered losses in the storm can qualify for grants to help cover housing repair or replacement costs, replace clothing and pay medical expenses. The maximum eligible amount is $29,900 per applicant; the grants are paid for by state funds.
