Roanoke Valley law enforcement reported the following:

Scotland Neck police Captain Tommy Parker reported Monday Officer C. P. Little stopped a vehicle on East Eighth Street for not having rear lights.

The driver, Dennis Marquis Hines, of Scotland Neck, had a fugitive warrant out of Danville, Virginia, for felony possession of stolen property.

Little arrested Hines and charged him with being a fugitive from justice, operating an unregistered vehicle, no insurance, driving while license revoked, and fail to burn tail lights. Hines received a $10,000 bond and is awaiting extradition.


Halifax County Sheriff’s Office

Chief Deputy Scott Hall reported that on July 7 Detective S.A. Bryant arrested an Enfield man for shooting into a residence in the area of Silvertown Road on June 7.

Bryant arrested and charged Dennis Glenn Baker, 56, with discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling, injury to real property and injury to personal property.

Hall said it was not clear what motivated the shooting, in which no one was injured.

Baker has a July 19 court date.


Northampton County Sheriff’s Office

Lieutenant A. Thomas reported on July 6, the sheriff’s office and Down East Drug Task Force responded to a residence outside the city limits of Rich Square for possible drug activity. Sergeant Wallace Ransom was at a residence on Dick Harmony Road for a welfare check of an elderly person who lived there.

Ransom noticed marijuana plants and alerted task force members, who determined Richard William Pierce, 48, was operating a grow house.

Agents seized 11 plants ranging in height from 1 foot to approximately 4 ½ feet along with associated marijuana paraphernalia.

Pierce gave consent to search and he was arrested and presented before a Northampton County magistrate who found probable cause for possession with intent to manufacture marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm by convicted felon.

Sheriff Jack Smith said in the statement, “The Northampton County Sheriff’s Office is committed to removing any and all illegal drugs in our county. I would like to thank Sergeant Ransom and the Northampton County Narcotics Division for their work on this case.”
