Multi-state crime spree suspect sentenced in Kansas

PRATT, Kan. (KRQE) – A Mississippi man accused of going on a multi-state crime spree, including New Mexico, has been sentenced to nearly 13 years behind bars in Kansas.

Alex Deaton pleaded guilty earlier this year to attempted murder and aggravated battery for shooting a convenience store clerk in Kansas.

Investigators say it was part of a string of crimes starting with Deaton strangling his girlfriend and shooting two people in Mississippi.

While on the run, he is accused of carjacking a couple in Albuquerque and shooting the man before ending up in Kansas.

Deaton could face more time if he is convicted in New Mexico and Mississippi.

Man on shoplifting crime spree was ‘off his face’ on P

A Rotorua man who was “off his face on methamphetamine” when he went on a two-month shoplifting crime rampage has been jailed for 12 months.

Ralph Hohepa Pereira, 28, appeared in the Rotorua District Court today for sentencing after pleading guilty to 15 counts of dishonesty offences between May 15 and July 19.

He targeted big businesses such as Briscoes, The Warehouse, Mitre 10, Couplands, Countdown and petrol stations stealing homeware, appliances, clothing, food and petrol valued at more than $4500.

His lawyer, Kathy Jackson, told Judge Maree MacKenzie today that her client appeared on security camera footage as if he was laughing. However, she said, the reality was he was so high on methamphetamine, he didn’t know what he was doing.

She said Pereira was a significant methamphetamine user and he was stealing to fuel his habit.
