Police asked for Google data in a hunt for the cause of the 2017 downtown Raleigh fire

February 15, 2018 in Bail Bonding, Crime

Police detectives, looking for clues to the origin of the giant downtown Raleigh fire last March, asked Google for data about any devices using its software that might have been in the area before the blaze.

But they came up empty, according to a search warrant turned in to the court clerk’s office on Wednesday.

The warrant application was submitted by Detective Brad Winston for Superior Court Judge Paul C. Ridgeway to sign last May 5. It suggests that police had suspicions about one or more people with Google accounts in the block where the fire happened between 7:30 and 10 p.m. the night of the fire.

The fire was reported at the site of the Metropolitan apartment building, which was under construction, about 10 p.m. March 16, 2017. The last contractor working on the site, which burned through the night, left about 7:30 p.m., Winston said.

Police policy is not to discuss search warrants, and the returned warrant is marked to show that Google did not have any information that fit the conditions in Winston’s request.

It was unclear why the warrant was not returned until this week.

The application said there was “probable cause to believe [that] evidence of the commission of the crime of the ‘burning of [a] building or structure in the process of construction’ ” would be in the requested data.

A process laid out in the search warrant called for police to get anonymous data showing what devices were in the Metropolitan block in the specified hours, and what kinds of Google accounts were on those devices.

The block, established by GPS coordinates and marked on a map included in the warrant application, was bounded by West Lane Street, North Harrington Street, West Jones Street and a line drawn a little west of North Dawson Street.

Police planned to narrow any data provided by Google and then ask the company for information identifying account holders who police thought were relevant.

Some of the language in the warrant suggests police may have had some information that made them think the fire was set.

“Law enforcement officers will attempt to narrow down the list by reviewing the time-stamped location coordinates for each account and comparing that against the known time and location information that is specific to this crime,” Winston wrote.

Only Google named in warrant

The warrant applied only to Google.

There is no way to know from the single warrant made public whether police made similar demands of other service providers or chose Google alone.

The warrant included a provision forbidding Google to tell account holders for 90 days whether their information had been turned over to police.

After the five-alarm fire was put out the morning after it began, Raleigh police and fire investigators and a field team from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives combed the site and the area around it for weeks.

No agency has said publicly whether the fire was arson or an accident.

The Metropolitan was in a construction stage in which several stories of wooden framing had been erected atop the building’s concrete podium and no fireproofing or sprinkler installation had yet been added.

Almost every piece of wood burned, and the concrete underpinning was stressed by the heat and had to be demolished and rebuilt.

In addition to destroying the Metropolitan, the intense blaze damaged adjacent buildings with smoke and heat. Hundreds of tenants had to leave their residences.

The Link Apartments Glenwood South reopened this week. The 15-story Quorum Center, which has offices and residential condominiums, might not reopen until 2019.

NC student made mass violence threat against peers on school bus, officials say

February 15, 2018 in Bail Bonding, Crime

A North Carolina student faces criminal charges after a bus driver reported hearing the student making verbal threats regarding fellow students on Wednesday afternoon.

The 16-year-old Macon County student “made more than one statement threatening the safety and well-being of fellow students,” as he exited the school bus, local officials said in a statement Thursday morning. The student is charged with communicating threats, a misdemeanor, and making a false report of mass violence to a school, a felony.

The incident occurred the same afternoon of the deadliest school shooting in the U.S. in the past five years, in which a 19-year-old is charged with killing 17 people in Parkland, Fla.

The Macon County bus driver immediately reported the student’s comments to school leaders, officials said. Interviews and video pulled from the school bus led to charges against the student. The incident remains under investigation.

“The threats made yesterday were extremely serious in nature and all of our staff took the appropriate steps immediately following the statements,” the statement from Macon Schools Superintendent Dr. Chris Baldwin and Sheriff Robert Holland said. “Threats of any kind against students and/or faculty will not be tolerated. These types of threats will be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted if appropriate.”

The student was arrested and placed under $10,000 bond. He is also subject to disciplinary action by the school system, officials said.

The school system provided additional support services for student and faculty on Thursday.

Crime Stoppers: Hair extensions stolen from beauty store

February 15, 2018 in Bail Bonding, Crime

Three women break into a beauty supply store and steal all the hair extensions they can carry out. It may not sound like much, but the store’s loss runs in the tens of thousands.

The iBeauty-210 shop on North Tryon has rows and rows of nothing but hair in every shape, style, texture, and length. They also come in varying degrees of price.

The most expensive, the Brazilian extensions, are kept on a wall in the back corner. And days before the break-in, surveillance video shows three women who were very interested in the display.

“We believe these women came into the store a couple days prior to the break-in,” said CMPD Detective Brandon Miller. “We have on video our suspects who spent a majority of their time in the store, right by the items that were stolen.”

Days later, at 4 a.m., surveillance video shows two well-disguised figures throwing a brick through the front door to break in. With an alarm sounding, they quickly go to the back of the store and collect the good stuff – the Brazilian hair. They load up their arms and run out to a waiting dark Nissan Altima where the third member of the crew was waiting.

“Manager says approximately 300 packs of one of their most expensive hair.”

And 300 packs equate to an estimated $24,000 in losses. That’s a lot of money for something as unusual as an all-female burglary.

“It is very rare, you don’t see many females breaking into businesses or doing anything for that matter.”

As police analyzed the video, they saw one heavyset woman wearing a black top, and another, thinner women wearing orange. The third member was difficult to see. Yet, detectives have linked those three with the crime.

“We’re looking at the facial features, the build of these females, and the overall mannerisms of these females,” the detective explained.

Police say they do have fingerprints taken from one of the bags they dropped on the way out. Detective Miller also says this bunch may have hit another nearby business.

“We had a break-in the same night at another beauty supply store, same M.O. The only thing this time is they stole wigs.”

Obviously, they can make a ton of money re-selling these items on the street. 

Call 704-334-1600 and let’s trim them from the hair stealing business. Crime Stoppers pays big rewards without knowing who you are.

Winston-Salem apartments, cars, struck by bullets in exchange of gunfire

February 15, 2018 in Bail Bonding, Crime

Two people were injured following an altercation at Ambercrest Apartments Tuesday night, police said.

Officers were called to the 5100 block of Ambercrest Drive about 7:45 p.m. about a shooting. A man reported to police he was inside his apartment when a person broke in and demanded items from the apartment and cash at gunpoint, police said.

When the victim refused, the robber hit him in the head and fled on foot, police said.

The victim told police he then got his own handgun and went outside to confront the robber and the pair exchanged gunfire in the parking lot. Several parked cars and apartments were struck by bullets, police said.

The robber fled before officers arrived.

While law enforcement was at the apartment complex, a person arrived at an area hospital for gunshot wounds that are not life-threatening, police said.

Police ask anyone with information to call (336) 773-7700 or Crime Stoppers at (336) 727-2800.
