Atlantic City NJ May 22 2012 Two Canadian women visiting Atlantic City were stabbed to death Monday morning in an apparent robbery attempt in the heart of the gambling resort city’s tourism district, according to reports.
The victims, whose names have not been released, were described by the Philadelphia ABC News affiliate WPVI as being 80 years old and 47 years old.
There were no details about where they were from in Canada, nor were there details about how the victims may have been related.
The Associated Press reported that the tourists were fatally stabbed during a botched street robbery in broad daylight. According to an NBC-affiliated news crew in Philadelphia, the crime scene was in an area near the Bally’s Atlantic City hotel and just steps away from the AtlantiCare hospital.
A female suspect remained in custody early Monday night.
Antoinette Pelzer, 44, was arrested around 10 a.m. ET after a police officer witnessed the altercation.
Witnesses said the suspect tried to steal one of the victims’ purses and that the attack was unprovoked.
An officer happened to come upon the violent scene and drew his gun, ordering the suspect to drop the knife, which she did. He then arrested her.
Pelzer was initally charged with two counts of aggravated assault and weapons offences, but Atlantic County prosecutor Ted Housel said it’s likely her charges will be upgraded after the two women died from their injuries shortly after the incident.
Both women were stabbed multiple times in the upper body, police said.
Investigators were working Monday night to determine how long the victims had been in the New Jersey gambling and leisure resort and where they had been staying.
KATHMANDU, Nepal May 22 2012 — Three people died while coming down the southern slope of the mountain during the weekend after reaching Mt. Everest’s 8848-meter (29,028 foot) summit, officials said.
The three have been identified as Ebehard Schaaf, 61, a German medical doctor; Sriya Shah, 33, a Nepali-born Canadian woman; and Song Wondin, a 44-year-old man from South Korea, according to officials of the tourism and civil aviation ministry and at the base of the mountain.
“Climbers climbing down the mountain have said that they have seen the body of the Korean,” said Tilakram Pandey, of the tourism and civil aviation ministry, by phone from the base of the mountain.
The Korean had earlier been reported as missing.
There are some reports of a Chinese and a Nepali missing as well but cannot be verified, according to Pandey.
The cause of the German’s death has been diagnosed as high-altitude cerebral edema, according to Ang Tshering Sherpa of Asian Trekking which organized his expedition.
Mountaineers often expend all their energy while ascending the mountain and do not think about energy needed to come down. “As a result, they become weak and suffer from altitude sickness,” Sherpa said.
Saturday was also windier than usual. On Saturday a 73-year old Japanese woman, Tamae Watanabe, had climbed the mountain from the northern side on the Tibet-China border to become the oldest woman on the summit.
Bal Krishna Ghimire, a spokesman of the tourism and civil aviation ministry, said that mountaineers began summiting the mountain from the south side this spring season only since Saturday, about 10 days later than usual, because of adverse weather conditions.
The spring mountaineering season, which lasts from March 1 to May 31, is the most popular season to climb the Himalayan peaks in Nepal.
With these three deaths the number of people killed on Everest this year has reached five, ministry official Dipendra Poudel said. Two Nepali sherpas died on the mountain earlier this month.
BATESBURG-LEESVILLE, SC May 22 2012- Two people are dead after an apparent murder-suicide inside a Lexington County Chinese restaurant Monday morning.
Batesburg-Leesville Police believe an employee of China 1, which is located at 245 W. Columbia Ave., was shot and killed by her boyfriend just hours after she filed a police report complaining of domestic violence in the relationship.
Police are still conducting interviews to determine exactly what happened, but a preliminary investigation shows the woman’s boyfriend showed up at China 1 around 11 a.m. and shot and killed her before turning the gun on himself.
According to Chief Wallace Oswald, no other people were injured in the incident.
Authorities have not yet released the names of the woman or her boyfriend.
CHESAPEAKE VA May 22 2012
When a police officer started investigating whether a gym teacher assaulted a 12-year-old Jolliff Middle School student last month, he hit a roadblock: The school would not give him a copy of surveillance footage from a security camera.
Not without a search warrant.
In the last year and a half, Chesapeake school resource officers – police officers who work in schools to improve security – have filed at least 12 search warrants in which they describe school administrative staff as “uncooperative” or as having “failed to provide all necessary information/evidence.”
The warrants involved crimes including locker larcenies, a pencil stabbing, drug sales and assaults. Six were filed on April 28, 2011, for incidents at Oscar Smith Middle School. In each case, the warrants were seeking written statements and video recordings of students.
In other Hampton Roads cities, police officials said they usually do not need search warrants to collect evidence from schools because officials typically provide it to them upon request.
In the Chesapeake cases, magistrate judges granted the search warrants, and police obtained the information they sought. But it added time – usually a couple of days – to the investigation.
On paper, it also gave the impression of ongoing friction between some schools and police officers assigned to work in them.
In contrast, Suffolk Police Major Stephanie Burch said when an 18-year-old Lakeland High School student was jumped in the hallway earlier this month by three students, the school promptly turned over a copy of surveillance video. She also said videos from buses are routinely turned over to Suffolk police.
In other criminal investigations, “if the school can provide it – and it’s not protected by a particular law – then they’re very willing to provide it,” Burch said.
Virginia Beach police Officer Grazia Moyers, a spokeswoman, said when city police have needed school surveillance video, schools willingly provided copies. Filing a search warrant, she said, is “just extra time for the investigators.”
When told that Chesapeake Police school resource officers sometimes had to go to court to obtain video surveillance footage or statements, Moyers said: “I’m shocked. I am in your school protecting you, and you’re going to make me go through these steps?”
A Virginia Beach Schools spokeswoman confirmed the division releases surveillance footage to police officers without a search warrant and simply has them sign a release form.
In Norfolk, police Officer Chris Amos said, school resource officers work with school administrators and don’t typically file search warrants for minor crimes such as larcenies and minor drug transactions. But the police spokesman said a lot of that cooperation is “based on a (school resource officer’s) relationship with that school administrator.”
“We work pretty well with Norfolk Public Schools,” he said.
In Portsmouth, police spokeswoman Jan Westerbeck said she’s heard of officers there filing search warrants to retrieve student or employee records, but not necessarily to get copies of videos.
Maureen Mizelle, a Portsmouth Public Schools spokeswoman, said police do not need a search warrant for surveillance video, but they need an information technology specialist to help them view encrypted video.
“We already work closely with the Police Department,” she said. “They’re in the schools” with school resource officers. “They’ve always supported us, and we support them.”
Chesapeake, however, takes the stance that videos are protected student records under federal law. Schools division spokesman Tom Cupitt said the division is obligated to protect confidential student records.
“Protected records under the law may take multiple forms, and may include video and/or audio recordings,” he said. School administrators are in charge of the footage, he said.
Based on the federal government’s view on the issue, surveillance videos can be protected or not protected depending on who is in charge of them.
The U.S. Department of Education encourages schools to have a security unit “run the video cameras in the schools, but many schools don’t have such units or prefer to keep the videos protected … so they can’t be disclosed to the public,” according to an email from David Thomas, a spokesman for the department’s Family Policy Compliance Office.
If security footage is maintained by school security, it is not protected under the student privacy law. But if school administrators keep it, the video is considered part of a student’s record and, therefore, private.
“If a school official other than a school law enforcement unit maintains the security video, then we have informally advised that a video image that captures a student or students in an altercation… would be an ‘education record,’ ” according to Thomas.
After Officer Steve Callow took out the search warrant in the Jolliff Middle School case, he was given a CD with video from the April 19 incident between the student and teacher two business days after it was reported to him.
The student has been charged with misdemeanor assault and is scheduled for a June 5 trial in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.
To smooth relations and outline expectations between the two entities, the school superintendent and Police Chief Kelvin Wright signed a memorandum of understanding in August.
The memo allows police to access students’ and parents’ names, as well as contact information. It also spells out expectations for evidence handling, saying school employees are required to give police all “criminal evidence” and “pertinent information” they’ve obtained during an investigation.
It goes on to say information “may be released” to school resource officers, but only to law enforcement officials after filing a subpoena or search warrant.
Wright said in an interview Wednesday that he is aware other school systems readily provide video surveillance evidence to officers, and that he is talking with school officials in Chesapeake to see whether that can change.
“We are trying to work out a solution between us and the appropriate attorneys,” he said. “As to whether we get there or not – stay tuned.”
GASTON COUNTY, N.C. May 22 2012
A former pastor from Gaston County is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon.
Police have accused Larry Bollinger with having sex with children.
Prosecutors have not released much information about the charges against Bollinger except to say the crimes happened in Haiti in 2009.
Channel 9 is still working to find out if the accusers were on a mission trip with Bollinger or if they lived in Haiti.
ATLANTIC CITY NJ May 22 2012 — Save-A-Lot opened Thursday, becoming the resort’s first supermarket in six years — and its first ever protected by armed security guards.
At least two gun-carrying guards will work at all times inside the discount grocer now operating in Renaissance Plaza at Atlantic and Kentucky avenues.
Armed guards normally staff Save-A-Lot’s 1,400 other stores nationwide — particularly urban locations such as Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, Miami, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Akron and Cleveland, Ohio, said the chain’s spokeswoman, Chon Tomlin.
“We can’t raise prices super high because of a lot of theft, as some retailers might in certain locations,” she said.
The practice is new for a grocery store in Atlantic City, but customers said it’s necessary for them to feel safe and to ensure the store’s survival.
“I like that part,” said lifelong resort resident Mara Swain, a 41-year-old casino cashier. “Atlantic City’s not the safest place, and then with the liquor store right there, you have a lot of people hanging around, asking for change. And it’s kind of a violent area, so while you’re in the store you’re a little more safe.”
Renaissance Plaza sits around the corner from the Schoolhouse Apartments, where on many nights residents hear gunfire on the street below and from neighborhoods farther from the city’s business, casino and tourism districts.
Atlantic City Public Safety Director Willie Glass said he wasn’t informed that the store would use armed private security — a rarity in the resort.
“Discounting banks and armored cars and all of that, I’m not aware of any (businesses) with armed (private) security in the city,” Glass said Thursday.
In compliance with state and local laws, Save-A-Lot security workers are off-duty or retired law-enforcement personnel, Tomlin said.
City code requires businesses to notify the local government of its security plans. But when asked previously about specific security and other operational improvements at Save-A-Lot, Police Chief Ernest Jubilee didn’t mention armed guards.
Jubilee said Thursday that he did not know the store would staff armed guards until after it opened.
But the practice is not uncommon, he said, pointing to Bank of America branches and the Cricket wireless store on Atlantic Avenue as examples of businesses using armed security in Atlantic City.
“It’s a corporate business decision,” Jubilee said. “I don’t have any objections to it, as long as (the business) does it legally and properly.”
Representatives for the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which owns the plaza, did not mention the guards either when asked about security measures.
The CRDA leases the retail center to New York-based real estate firm Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp., which rents spaces to McDonalds, CVS, Pay Less Liquors and now Save-A-Lot.
“Any security measures within the confines of the supermarket would typically be the responsibility of the tenant,” CRDA spokeswoman Kim Butler said.
In addition to armed guards, the grocery chain is using more comprehensive surveillance and lighting systems, in hopes of ensuring success of the store that is the latest in a line of operators. The others closed after just a few years operating in the 18,000-square-foot space.
Like many others, Swain took the bus to the Pathmark location in Ventnor Heights, four miles south from her home on Tennessee Avenue. Her other option was to shop at any of the dozens of tiny grocers scattered throughout the city. While convenient, those shops charge more and offer a fraction of larger stores’ selection.
She said she usually buys enough groceries that she needs more space than public transportation affords on the ride back — and that means a $15 cab fare.
Another option requiring similar arrangements in the absence of a car: ShopRite in Absecon, seven miles offshore on Route 30, the island’s northernmost causeway.
The gun-carrying guards drew praise from Anne Smith, who drove from Pleasantville — where residents recently lost a Pathmark that shut down in nearby Egg Harbor Township — to check out the new store.
“I think it’s great they’re present, so people don’t fear,” said Smith, a former Pleasantville councilwoman and retired guidance counselor. “It’s good they have security to make people feel comfortable.”
Smith said she would come back for deals on items including eggs — 88 cents per dozen — and $1 Banquet frozen dinners.
But the store should stock more fresh vegetables, expand their deli case and post a sign alerting customers to the price of plastic bags, she said.
Customers must pay 3 cents for standard-sized plastic bags and 10 cents for oversized bags, offering $1 reusable bags as an alternative.
That charge is one strategy used by the company, which sells items for less than other major retailers, to keep costs down, Tomlin said.
Save-A-Lot also carries fewer national name brands, supplemented by its own lines for items such as cereal and condiments.
The store fills a six-year void in the city, which last hosted a supermarket in 2006. IGA shut its doors there after two years in business; predecessor Thriftway operated for eight. When Thriftway opened in 1996 as the anchor for Renaissance Plaza, the resort had gone without a supermarket for more than two decades.
Previous stores were 40,000 square feet, but renovations cut that in half before Save-A-Lot opened. Tenants have not yet been found for the remaining area.
At about 8:50 a.m., police were called about a break-in in progress in the 400 block of Portage Avenue.
Security guards told police they saw two suspects break into the business. The burglars caused damage inside the building, then tried to remove liquor from the restaurant. One of the burglars fled. The other stayed and armed himself with a fire extinguisher. He discharged the contents of the extinguisher at security officers, “while motioning to use the canister in a threatening manner,” a Winnipeg police news release said.
When police arrived, the remaining burglar armed himself with a corrosive cleaning fluid and splashed it towards the security guards. A police officer was injured. The young man was taken into custody and placed under arrest.
At about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, police arrested a second suspect in the area of Ellice Avenue and Smith Street.
Two boys, ages 15 and 16, face several charges including break and enter, assault with a weapon, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Police are still investigating.
Officers responded at 4:07 p.m. to a report of a man making bomb threats while arguing with Transportation Security Administration staff, according to an incident report.
Witnesses said the man began using profane language while at a security checkpoint to Concourse B at the airport, 2077 Airport Drive. The checkpoint is for passengers waiting to board a flight and the man is accused of saying, “What do you think? I have a bomb?”
The man, from Middle Island, N.Y., was detained in a second-floor conference room, where officers say he began resisting arrest. A Taser device was then deployed on the back of the man’s upper right and left legs before he was taken into custody. Officers later determined the man did not pose a security threat, though his choice of words was inappropriate.
The man is expected to be charged today with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in Brown County Circuit Court.
At the Brown County Jail, the man registered a 0.11 percent blood-alcohol content, which is more than the legal driving limit of 0.08.
The latest attack occurred Sunday, when the victim, a man in his 20s, had a collision with another driver and three other men pinned him down, police said.
The other driver kicked and hit the victim in the head and face while he was on the ground, police Sgt. David Armas said.
“It was just a minor fender bender that just got totally out of hand,” he said.
The victim, whose name was not released, had scrapes and cuts to his face, but his injuries were not life-threatening, Armas said. A woman in the victim’s car who is eight months pregnant was not hurt, but she was examined at a hospital as a precaution, he said.
The four men, all in their 20s, were arrested for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon. They were not immediately identified.
Calls to Dodgers representatives seeking comment were not immediately returned Monday. The team said earlier this year that security was a “paramount priority.”
The violence came after Giants fan Bryan Stow was beaten last year. Two men have pleaded not guilty to charges including mayhem and assault. Stadium officials beefed up security after that attack.
Stow’s family has filed a lawsuit against the team and previous owner Frank McCourt, claiming security cutbacks were partially to blame for the attack.
The Dodgers were sold earlier this year to an ownership group that includes NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
Dodgers security staff and uniformed off-duty Los Angeles police were at the stadium Sunday and responded quickly.
Cmdr. Andrew Smith said the officer who detained the suspects was an off-duty LAPD officer who was working in uniform for the Dodgers.
Dodger Stadium is one of the few places that LAPD allows officers to be hired by an outside organization and to wear their police uniform, Smith said.
Police were out in full force on opening day last month and reported a drop in the number of arrests and public drinking citations from opening day the previous year.
Police have said officers wearing rival team jerseys will be at every home game.
“We’ve maintained that high presence throughout the year,” Smith said.
The beating occurred after the Dodgers’ 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
KNOXVILLE TN May 22 2012 - Three people were shot and killed Monday afternoon at an apartment complex, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

CONCORD, NC May 22 2012 - Police say a 17-year-old had his license revoked for speeding, five hours before getting back behind the wheel and dying in a head-on crash.
They say they stopped and arrested Joshua Stanish of Charlotte Friday evening on Highway 49 in Concord for driving 85 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Stanish then went before a magistrate, who revoked his license.
Then around ten o’clock that evening, officers say they spotted Stanish behind the wheel again. He refused to stop and then struck two cars, head-on, on Cox Mill Road, near the intersection with Edenburg Lane.
Five people in those two cars he struck were hurt, including a Harrisburg couple and their two sons.
North Carolina Highway Patrol and Concord Police say they’re continuing to investigate.
HOUSTON TX May 22 2012 – Police were looking for two suspects Friday after a Family Dollar clerk was shot during a robbery Thursday night.
The 26-year-old victim died at the scene.
“It’s something real, real sad,” said Jose Balderas, a customer. “I don’t know why they did it. But they were wrong.”
Police said the masked suspects entered the store at Bellfort and Bullfinch around 10 p.m. Investigators believe they waited until closing time to make their move.
As the suspects approached the clerk and demanded money, one of two customers in the store tried to leave, but realized the suspects had locked the door.
Then, another customer, who was armed and had a concealed handgun license, pulled out his weapon and exchanged gunfire with the suspects.
The clerk was fatally shot during that exchange. Police have not yet determined whose bullet killed her.
The suspects fled the scene in the customers’ car.
The vehicle, which is a rental, is described as a 2012 tan Toyota Camry with Louisiana plates N238302.
Another Family Dollar employee was also inside at the time of the robbery, but they were not hurt.
Customers who came to the store Friday and found it closed expressed sadness when they learned of what happened there.
“I feel terrible. Nobody deserves to lose a life over somebody taking something from them,” Family Dollar shopper Louisa Quiones said.
“Everybody got to make a living. That’s no reason to kill somebody over money. That’s not right – not right at all,” shopper Elizabeth Quiones said.
The store has a surveillance system, but police said the suspects’ masks prevented them from making any sort of identification.
The victim’s identity was being withheld, pending notification of family members.
Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact HPD Homicide at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
NATCHEZ, MS May 22 2012 - Sheriff Chuck Mayfield says gang activity caused the unrest at the privately-run Adams County Correctional Center in Natchez.
A guard, identified as 24-year-old Catlin Carithers of Meadville, was killed and nineteen other people were injured after the inmate uprising began Sunday afternoon. Carithers had been working at the prison since 2009.
The incident was finally contained overnight, and authorities say they have regained total control.
Sheriff Mayfield says Carithers was beaten to death by inmates on the roof of one of the buildings. He says as many as three hundred inmates were involved — some armed with makeshift weapons such a broom handles.
The prison is owned and operated by Corrections Corporation of America. Most of the inmates are illegal immigrants who re-entered the country after being deported.
LAS VEGAS NV May 22 2012– Las Vegas police have arrested a man for an alleged robbery at the Bellagio Casino that happened on Saturday night.
According to the police report, Michael Belton and another man walked up to a blackjack table and sprayed the people playing at the table with pepper spray. Belton then grabbed 23 $5,000 chips and tried to flee the scene.
He was apprehended by casino security and held until police arrived. The second man was able to escape.
While he was being interviewed, police say Belton identified the second person involved only as “Carlos,” and that he only participated in the crime because he was unemployed and needed money to help his ailing grandparents.
Police retrieved a Mandalay Bay Hotel room key from Belton. When they went to the hotel, they found that the room was registered to Carlos Rodriguez. Belton told officers Rodriguez was the mastermind of the heist, but they were unable to find him.
The report says Rodriguez planned to use the chips at the casino and then split the winnings among the suspects. Police say Carlos Rodriguez is not the same Carlos who allegedly accompanied Belton to the casino to commit the robbery.
Belton was arrested and charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and burglary.
Las Vegas police have refused to comment on this story or release Belton’s mugshot, citing the ongoing investigation.
News 8 has learned that Officer Ryan Kahn and his girlfriend arrived home at their apartment in Dallas’ medical district Sunday morning when they were approached by two suspects. A source said the pair demanded money.
Officer Kahn had none, so he was shoved into a car, driven to an ATM, and forced to withdraw cash.
Kahn was released nearby. The suspects are still on the loose.
Oaklawn IL May 22 2012 A man was charged with head-butting a security guard at Advocate Christ Medical Center at 4440 W. 95th St. around 9:25 p.m., reports said.
Police said a man identified as Lenard Myles, 19, of Chicago, started yelling at hospital staff because he wanted to leave the hospital before an IV was taken out of his arm.
Security officers told Myles to sit down so that the IV could be removed.
Police said Myles head butted the security guard and kicked another guard’s knee.
Security handcuffed Myles and held him for police, reports said.
He was taken to the Oak Lawn police station where he was booked on two counts of battery.
