There is no denying that sometimes police investigators gather serious evidence against accused individuals. While not always indicative of guilt, surveillance video can be one particularly effective tool for prosecutors in their efforts to obtain a conviction. But because these videos are often shot from odd angles and have a blurred or grainy quality, they can present problems for correctly identifying a person who may have committed a crime.
In North Carolina, theft crime charges are serious business, no matter who you are. A 28-year-old Army soldier is likely realizing this after being accused of breaking into a gun shop. The 82nd Airborne Division paratrooper is now charged with stealing property valued at tens of thousands of dollars.
Being charged with a crime is no jewel. However, all is not lost simply because accusations have been made. While felony charges could indeed carry significant penalties -- for instance, jail time, probation, community service and fines -- a person who has been charged with a crime should never lose hope. This remains true for two young men from Charlotte who are facing several felony charges in connection with recent incidents that may or may not involve them.
Police have arrested a Charlotte man and issued arrest warrants for two others in connection with a so-called theft ring in North Carolina. Authorities claim that the men stole a number of goods from area businesses and then attempted to sell the stolen property online through Craigslist. The total value of the items involved in the alleged theft crime amount to more than $1 million.
Police recently arrested a North Carolina man on allegations of producing counterfeit money. Authorities have accused the young man of a number of crimes, including forgery of bank notes, possession of stolen goods and possession of counterfeit money. At the time of a local news report, he was being held in jail under a $30,000 bond.
