Thief’s three month crime spree brought to a halt

A thief who went on a three month crime spree to feed his heroin addiction has been jailed.

Carl Imral Davies, of Ffordd Cynfal, Bangor, had admitted charges of burglary, theft, fraud and motoring offences at an earlier hearing and appeared for sentence at Caernarfon Crown Court.

The 32-year-old was handed prison terms totalling 28 months.

Judge Huw Rees told Davies that “heroin had blighted his life”.

“It has taken you off the rails in terms of acquisitive offending. You have had opportunities in the past and the sentence I have to impose is one of immediate custody as the offences are so serious.”

Police probe three-month crime spree – Times

THOMASVILLE — A Thomasville Police Department (TPD) investigation that began in August continues as detectives constantly gather intelligence in cases that span three months.

Numerous incidents of nighttime commercial burglaries, stolen vehicles and entering autos have occurred in the U.S. 19 South area, said Sgt. Toby Knifer, assistant commander of the TPD Criminal Investigations Division. Some have occurred in unincorporated areas just outside the city.

Culprits are stealing everything from firearms and money to golf carts and other vehicles, Knifer said, adding that most of the vehicles stolen had keys in them.

Intelligence shows the incidents might possibly be related.

Three golf carts stolen from a 19 South business were found a short time later off Cassidy Road. Knifer said the vehicles did not travel on a highly-visible route to the other side of town, but along paths and back roads.

“We’re processing the golf carts for evidence and looking at surveillance video to identify

Roaring ’20s ends tragically with a seven-month crime spree that rattled Lawrence County

Sometimes the good ol’ days were not so good.

Lawrence County suffered a seven-month crime spree from Dec. 27, 1929, to July 24, 1930, that left six people dead. According to Michael Occhibone, county District Court administrator, there were three homicides in Lawrence County in all of 2016.

The first tragic incident of the spree is well-remembered by a memorial marker on Old Route 422 in Shenango Township, about two miles from the New Castle city limits: “In memory of Corp. Brady C. Paul who was fatally shot near this spot in performance of his duty.”

The crime made national headlines as the murder was committed by a 22-year-old pretty blonde woman, Irene Schroeder, and her boyfriend, Glen Dague from West Virginia. Her 4-year-old son, Donnie, was in the car at the time and witnessed the killing.

The couple, along with Schroeder’s older brother, Tom Crawford, had robbed a grocery store in Butler and

Rockhampton man, 22, facing 111 charges for 4 month crime spree

A 22-YEAR-OLD Rockhampton man went on a four-month crime spree resulting in 111 charges including multiple burglary offences and one of dangerous driving.

Anthony George Denis Butler applied to the Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday for bail after the majority of his charges were dealt with during a committal hearing last week.

Butler’s charges include dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of a dangerous drug, driving unlicensed, burglary, entering premises, unlawful use of motor vehicles, trespass, failing to stop a motor vehicle and possessing drug utensils.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Kathy Stafford said the charges arise from 17 offending occasions over four-months.

The court heard Butler had been released from a correctional centre in Townsville on May 31, 2016 on parole with no money and started committing offences so he could get back to Rockhampton.

He had been sentenced to a 15-month and a five-month prison terms, being served cumulatively, for similar offences.
