Buffalo NY April 23 2013 A West Side man was arrested Saturday night after police say he became unruly at a Buffalo Bandits game and later bit the finger of a security guard at First Niagara Center.
Central District officers say Kyle Isaacs, 19, of Pennsylvania Street, and a companion, Danny Vyse, 21, of Oshweken, Ont., were asked to leave the arena during the Bandits game because of their disruptive behavior.
The two men are accused of refusing to leave and struggling with security guards, and arena officials say Isaacs bit the right middle finger of one guard and caused a cut that may require stitches.
Isaacs is charged with third-degree assault and both men are charged with trespass and harassment.
DANBURY CT April 22 2013 — A city man and a Brookfield woman were charged with larceny Friday after Danbury Fair mall security personnel stopped them with items allegedly stolen from several stores.
Andres Cortes, 18, of Westville Avenue, Danbury and Adana Neuyen, 19, of Aspen Way, Brookfield, were arrested Friday at about 5:11 p.m., police said.
Mall security officers stopped the pair separately outside of mall entrances after an employee from Sunglass Hut reported that a man and woman matching their descriptions had taken sunglass from a display, police said.
According to police, the pair were found to have assorted items between them from several stores, including more than 25 pairs of sunglasses and watches. Fossil, Abercrombie & Fitch, Lens Crafters and Sunglass Hut produced documentation bringing the value of the items to $6,823, police said.
Cortes and Neuyen were each charged with third-degree larceny and third-degree conspiracy to commit larceny. Cortes was released on $25,000 bond with a court date of April 29. Neuyen remained in custody Saturday on a $25,000 bond.
Muskegon County 14th Circuit Chief Judge William C. Marietti on Tuesday, March 26, ordered Pipkins to prison for between three and 12 years for third-degree fleeing and eluding police, being a felon in possession of a firearm, assault with a dangerous weapon and resisting police, plus a consecutive two years for possessing a firearm while committing a felony. Pipkins was sentenced as a fourth-time habitual offender. He was also ordered to pay $538 in fees and costs.
Pipkins pleaded no contest as charged to all counts Feb. 25.
Pipkins shot at a Mercy Health Partners Hackley Campus security guard around 1 a.m. Oct. 22, 2012, then later ran toward a police officer while armed with a handgun. The officer fired at Pipkins, who was not hit.
According to police, authorities received a call from the security guard about a man driving a red van who shot at him near the hospital.
Police later spotted what they believed to be the van at Wood Street and Amity Avenue. An officer followed it and tried to make a traffic stop at Wood and Oak Avenue.
Police said the van’s driver drove east on Oak, then jumped while the van was still moving in the 700 block of Oak. The van kept moving and stopped after crashing into a tree.
As the officer was getting out of his police cruiser, the armed suspect turned and ran toward the officer, police said. The officer fired, missing the suspect.
A foot chase then began, and the officers saw the suspect enter a home in the 500 block of Oak, where the suspect apparently knew the occupants. Officers were allowed to enter the home, where they found the suspect in a bedroom with a loaded handgun.

HANOVER COUNTY, Va.Feb 26 2013– Three teenagers who killed Atlee High School student Brett Wells were each sentenced to 27 years in prison.
De’von Byars, 19, Kevin Drayton Jr., 18, and Xavia Highsmith, 18, received identical sentences:
25 years with 10 years suspended on the 1st degree murder charge
20 years with 16 years suspended on the malicious wounding charge
Five years on the use a firearm in commission of a felony charge
Three years on the malicious wounding with use a firearm charge
Five years with five years suspended on the conspiracy to rob charge
“I’m just happy that it’s over and that his family [the Wells family] can get some peace from this,” De’von Byars’ mother Karima said.
Andrew Parks, a friend of Brett Wells, was disappointed with the sentences.
“It’s not enough. A 16-year-old kid gets his life taken and they get 25 years out of theirs. It’s not right,” Parks said. “You can’t expect to take someone’s life and get a slap on the wrist, it’s not fair.”
The teenagers shot and killed Wells at his Mechanicsville home in January of 2012. The teenagers went to Wells’ home to steal marijuana from the teen.
Judge Walter Stout called this case an “enigma” and “unusual” because the teens who killed Wells had no real history of trouble, a point character witnesses for the defense reiterated during Monday’s sentencing hearing. The judge said the teens got themselves in danger by getting into drugs and guns.
“I do agree, they are smart kids, they were getting good grades in school but something, somewhere along the line things went terribly wrong,” Deputy Commonwealth Attorney Shari Skipper said after the sentencing. “Brett Wells was a 16-year-old boy and everything that he had, everything that his parents had is taken away. His family, his friends, and his community will live with that for the rest of their lives. So while the defendants are very young and I can see why the judge gave the sentence that he did it’s certainly not what the Commonwealth was hoping for.”

Much of the cocaine was sold in and around the streets of Lake Worth, Florida.
Mr. Ferrer commended the investigative efforts of the FBI, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Rinku Tribuiani and Robert Waters.
An indictment is only an accusation and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
PALM DESERT CA Feb 21 2013 — One man was arrested this afternoon after he attempted to ride a dirt bike through Westfield Palm Desert mall, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Cody Riddle, 19, of Palm Desert, is being processed and will most likely be detained on suspicion of reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and violation of probation, according to sheriff’s Cpl. Angel Ramos.
A witness told The Desert Sun the incident happened at about 4 p.m.
Ramos said the sheriff’s department received a report at about 3:30 p.m. that someone was riding a dirt bike recklessly along El Paseo.
A short time later, the dirt bike was reported inside the mall, added Franchesca Forrer, marketing director for Westfield.
The witness, who did not want his name used, said he was on the second floor of the mall when he heard what sounded like an engine revving and looked to the first floor where he saw the dirt bike and its rider.
Kiosk employees attempted to stop the rider and one man was seen holding onto the rear of the bike in an attempt to keep it from moving.
Other kiosk employees helped to bring the man and the bike down, one of the employees was thrown into a kiosk, officials said, but did not suffer serious injuries and was treated at the scene.
Mall security arrived and was able to handcuff the man, who was then turned over to sheriff’s deputies, officials said.
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. Feb 8 2013 – Springfield police have arrested four suspects after a Springfield College security guard was robbed and shot late Wednesday night.
Detective Joe Brodeur told 22News that at around 11:25 Wednesday night, a man was walking in the area of Hickory Street and Eastern Ave., when a group of people allegedly robbed him and then shot him in the leg.
Springfield College Spokesperson Steve Roulier confirmed for 22News that the victim was one of their security guards, who was walking to work at the time of the robbery.
Roulier says that the guard is still in the hospital as of mid-morning Thursday, but he is expected to be okay.
Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney told 22News that Julian Roberts, 18, Azekiel A. Rodney, 20, Samuel Eady, 23, and Quiyaim Traynham, 19, all of Springfield, face several charges including armed robbery and armed assault with intent to murder.
All four of them are also suspects in the robbery of a package store owner and employee on Pine Street earlier in the night.
UPDATE: Police have identified the three teens as:
Jordan Smith,Brandon Tyler Ary, 19, and Jordan Seth Montgomery, 17.
Jasper AL Jan 2 2013 Investigators believe a small plane that crashed in the Alabama woods was taken without permission for a joyride by a student pilot and two other teenagers who died in the wreck Tuesday night.
Walker County sheriff’s Chief Deputy James Painter said Wednesday authorities are still investigating but believe the three teenagers took off in the plane before it went down in a wooded area near Jasper, northwest of Birmingham.
“We don’t know for sure but we think it was some teenagers who stole the plane and were sort of joyriding it,” Painter told The Associated Press. “They got it in and took off and didn’t go very far.”
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the Piper PA 30 crashed less than a mile from the Walker County Airport in Jasper.
The names of the three occupants of the plane haven’t been released.
“I think they were just looking for a thrill and they had their last one,” Painter said.
The plane had departed from the small airport at night and when there was a low cloud ceiling , airport manager Edwin Banks said.
“It was a student pilot flying an airplane without permission, an airplane that he was not qualified to fly at night,” Banks said. He declined to name the student before authorities release the identities.
The teenage pilot had flown a single-engine airplane in the past “and he got in a double-engine at night in bad weather with a couple of his buddies,” Banks said.
The Piper PA 30 is also called a Piper Twin Comanche. It is a low-wing plane with two propellers and can seat four to six, depending on the model.
The planes were built from 1963 until 1972, and were popular with flight schools because of their fuel efficiency and relatively inexpensive price tags, according to the International Comanche Society, an enthusiasts’ group.
Sacramento CA Dec 28 2012 police have released the photos and names of teens they suspect caused a frightening disturbance at Arden Fair mall last night.
Pushing and shoving by a group at the mall Wednesday prompted shoppers to flee and the false rumor of gunfire to spread.
Police said early this morning they suspect that Dremon O’Deal, 19, and Louis Santiago, 18, caused the disturbance. They were booked into Sacramento County Jail.
A 15-year-old was also arrested. His name was not released because he is a juvenile.
The initial calls – which began flooding into the 911 call center shortly before 5 p.m. – drew a massive response from Sacramento police, county sheriff’s deputies and mall security. Officials quickly confirmed that reports of a shooting and of a person armed with a gun were unfounded, said police spokesman Officer Doug Morse.
In less than an hour, the mall was open for business again, though the crowds had subsided considerably.
Police questioned a handful of teens whose behavior appeared to have prompted the chaos. They were believed to have been part of a group of at least 20 juveniles seen running through the mall, knocking over signs, pushing over shoppers and creating what Morse described as an “absurd disturbance.”
The disturbance immediately led to confusion, fear and a rush of shoppers exiting the mall.
Morse said the initials calls of shots fired represented a “worst-case scenario” for police, sending dozens of officers racing to the scene.
“Reports like this are very serious,” he said. “In these times, it’s what we all dread in our community.”
Morse applauded the mall’s security system, which includes a contract with off-duty, uniformed Sacramento police officers. He said that relationship helped officers quickly assess the situation and dispute the erroneous reports.
By 5:30 p.m., lockdowns had been lifted and stores were opening back up for business.
Rachel Hooper, 31, said she was shopping in Nordstrom when “all of a sudden, out of nowhere” security officers flooded the store, locked the doors and kept people from using the escalators.
After about 15 minutes, shoppers were allowed out of the store and into the main mall area.
Hooper said she could see other stores locked down, with employees waiting for the green light from police to open up. Some seemed hesitant even when police assured them it was safe, she said.
Hooper said she didn’t know what was going on until she checked Twitter for updates. She was relieved to learn there hadn’t been a shooting.
“Thankfully, (it was) just a lot of confusion, I think,” she said.
Reached by phone, an employee at Abercrombie & Fitch said the store was locked down briefly after people were heard screaming. She said a mall security officer directed the store’s employees to lock the doors and move people to the rear of the store. The store remained locked for about 10 minutes, said the employee, who did not give her name.
Once employees were told the incident was under control, customers were ushered out of the store.
Hoover Alabama Dec 24 2012 -Police have released the names of the victims Friday night shooting inside of Martini’s Ultra Lounge that left two people dead.
Monterio Alonzo Peebles-Kellogg, 19, and 20-year-old Lakenya Chanise Moton were killed after a shooter entered the club located at 2132 Lorna Ridge Lane, according to Cpt. Jim Coker of the Hoover Police Department. Both victims were Birmingham residents.
Police received a call at midnight, said Coker.
A second female, 20, was also injured and treated at UAB Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A suspect was taken into custody around sunrise by U.S. Marshals and there is no threat to the general public, according to Coker.
Police have not released a motive, but the suspect may have known the victims, he said.
“This was no random act,” Coker said.
The fate of the nightclub would have to be discussed by the chief of police and elected officials, Coker said.
“It’s been about two-and-a-half years since we’ve had a homicide in Hoover that wasn’t traffic related,” he said.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
“We do investigate a crime of this nature very thoroughly,” Coker said.
Jordan Charles Dalton, 19, Jaron Bradley Dalton, 24 and Bernard Kadeen Ramsey, 19, are all charged with murder, armed robbery, first-degree burglary and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to a news release from the Picken’s County Sheriff’s Office.
Warrants have been issued for 18-year-old Lester Devaria Mosley Jr., who is still at large and considered armed and dangerous, police say.
Just before 8:30 p.m. Saturday, police in Pickens County say, three masked men entered through the unlocked back door of Grich’s apartment in the town of Central, about two miles away from the Clemson campus, and shot him.
Seven people were in the apartment at the time of the attack, police said, and no one else was shot or seriously injured. Investigators do not believe Grich knew the men who attacked him.
Police received information early Monday that led them to Ramsey, the release states. After further investigation, authorities connected the Dalton brothers and Mosley with the murder. The black 2005 Dodge Durango police believed the men to be driving was found.
Police also charged Grich’s roommate, Robert McKinley, 29, with simple possession of marijuana. Deputies said they found the marijuana while searching the home Saturday night. A woman answering the phone at a listing for McKinley on Monday said he was devastated by his roommate’s death and was cooperating with investigators.
According to police, the four intended to rob McKinley of what they believed would be a large amount of marijuana. Only a few grams were actually taken from the apartment, the release states.
Steven Gregory Grich liked to mix his own music and create his own sounds while trying to devise ways to make energy free for everyone.
Chances are, the 23-year-old Clemson University junior – whose father compared him to Sheldon Cooper of the CBS comedy “The Big Bang Theory” – did all three simultaneously as he studied electrical engineering.
Math and science were “his life,” said his father, Steve Grich of Fort Mill, on Monday – two days after Steven Grich was shot and killed by an armed robber in his off-campus apartment.
Police were still searching Monday for the attackers, who were believed to be driving a black 2005 Dodge Durango SUV that was seen leaving Chimney Ridge, the gated community where Grich lived, after the shooting.
On Facebook, friends created a memorial page titled “RIP Steven Gregory Grich.” Family, close friends and acquaintances posted on the page throughout Sunday and Monday, sharing memories of Grich “reinventing himself” and flashing his trademark smirk.
One woman posted that Grich was her first boyfriend in junior high school, compelling her to write, “I love Steven,” on her sneakers.
“Clearly, there are a lot of people upset about the tragedy,” said Clemson spokesman John Gouch. “I think it’s hit a lot of people hard just because it’s someone cut down in the prime of life.”
Sunday night, Clemson’s student affairs office held counseling sessions to help students deal with the stress of learning about Grich’s death right before final exams, which started Monday.
Grich was the first Clemson student this year to be killed in a violent crime, Gouch said. In October, Kohleigh Michelle Hunt, a 20-year-old Clemson senior, was killed in a three-car accident just north of Seneca.
Grich, born in Virginia before he and his family moved to Connecticut and then to South Carolina a couple of years ago, graduated from Connecticut’s Valley Regional High School, where his father said he faced several difficulties.
“Everyone” thought Grich was lazy and disinterested in school, his father said, until he took himself to a doctor and was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder. The doctor prescribed medication that helped him focus, Steve Grich said.
Soon he was able to “multifunction,” his father said, concentrating on several tasks at one time. One of those tasks included using SoundCloud – an online distribution site that allows artists to record and share their own audio creations.
Under the screen name “Mandelbrot,” he produced 10 sounds, several with unique names like “Suroopanaka” and “God Complex.”
Grich went on to earn an associate’s degree in electrical technology from the New England Institute of Technology in Rhode Island.
“He was furthering his education at Clemson,” his father said, enrolling there for the fall 2011 semester with aspirations of providing cheap or free energy for everyone.
“He wanted to help the world,” his father said. “He wanted to make a difference. He did so much.
“We used to joke and call him ‘Sheldon Cooper.’ (one of the main characters on “The Big Bang Theory.”) That was his personality.”
More than anything, he loved his younger brother, Shawn Christopher Grich, his father said.
The two, just 20 months apart, were “best friends” who never got into an argument, Grich said.
“They were so close,” he said.
Roberta Grich remembers her grandson’s intelligence and unexpected fascination with her spaghetti sauce.
While she was making it one day, she said, he stood beside her and said, “I’m going to be the only one to know your secrets.”
“And he did watch me,” she said. “He was my love; he made me laugh; he was the apple of my eye.”
Each Christmas, Grich and her grandchildren would gather to buy ornaments for the tree. Steven would always pick something out of the ordinary, she said, just “to get a rise out of me.”
A father’s poem
Steve Grich, the father of slain Clemson University student Steven Gregory Grich of Fort Mill, penned this poem in the hours after learning of his son’s death. He asked The Herald to share it with our readers:
My dear son! I miss you so much
It keeps hurting, I can’t stop crying
My eyes always search for you in the sky
Heart longs for finding you in the heavens
My dear son! I love you so much
I feel so empty without you
I am so scared of my future without you
Heart longs for being around you for my safety
My dear son! You are my angel
I still feel that you are caring for me from above
I tell my broken heart that you are still watching me
Heart longs for your care even from heaven
My dear son! You are my protector
I remember you when I feel lonely
I talk to you when I break into pieces
Heart longs for your support even from heaven
My dear son! I was thinking I gave you life
The reality is that you had given me life
Without you and your presence, I can’t exist
Heart longs for your company in my heart until I exist
Please be there in my heart
I Love You Son!

Chicago IL Nov 6 2012 A man who police said had a stolen gun belonging to slain Chicago police officer Clifton Lewis stashed inside a cooler at his Austin neighborhood home has been charged.
Dimitri Mitchell, 19, of the 800 block of North Leamington Avenue, was charged Saturday with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and possession of a stolen firearm, police said. Mitchell was ordered held on $150,000 bond today.
When officers got to his home Thursday afternoon to execute a search warrant, they knocked and waited but ended up forcing their way in. They found Mitchell in the bathroom.
After a brief interview, Mitchell nodded his head toward a black and gray cooler in the hallway of his home and told police: “The gun’s in there in case someone tries to come in,” according to a preliminary police report.
Inside they found a Smith and Wesson semi-automatic handgun with a chrome finish, a 4-inch barrel and was loaded with eleven live rounds, the report said.
Mitchell was placed into custody at 3:15 p.m. and the gun was taken to be examined further. Detectives later found it belonged to officer Lewis, the report said.
Lewis, 41, was off-duty from his police job and working security when the two masked robbers burst into the convenience store at 1201 N. Austin Blvd., opened fire with a gun — akin to a TEC-9 — and fatally wounded him Dec. 29, 2011.
Two men, Tyrone Clay and Edgardo Colon, both of Chicago, were later charged with his murder, but Lewis’ gun was never found.
Bail was denied Jan. 7 for the two men after they were charged with murder while in commission of an armed robbery and first-degree murder of a peace officer, said Cook County state’s attorney spokeswoman Sally Daly the day of the hearing.
Lewis was an eight-year veteran of the force.

At about 6 p.m., Dartmouth police responded to Walmart, at 506 State Road, for a report of two suspicious women inside of the store. Walmart security associates reported that these women were allegedly responsible for stealing three computers and other electronics from earlier that day. It was reported the alleged perpetrators had exited the store with the stolen merchandise. The women then fled in a gold colored Buick SUV. Walmart valued the stolen property at nearly $3,000.
While officers were responding to Walmart, store security reported that the women exited the store and left the area in the same vehicle, described as a Buick Rendezvous.
Officers located and stopped this vehicle as it was traveling on Old Westport Road. The operator of the vehicle was identified as Jennifer L. Morgan, 40, from Berlin, N.H., and her passenger as Paizli Commander, 19, from Gorham, N.H.
Police discovered several new items inside of the vehicle with Walmart price tags still attached. A razor knife and scissors were found inside of Morgan’s pocketbook. Both female subjects were identified by Walmart security as the alleged thieves. Morgan and Paizli were arrested without incident.
Both Morgan and Paizli were scheduled to be arraigned Monday at New Bedford Third District Court, each charged with larceny of more than $250.
Officer Justin Fonseca is the lead investigator on the case, assisted by Officer Tony Vincent.
