Alleged Marine deserter held in Wayne County

Posted July 27, 2009

— An accused Marine deserter is being held at the Wayne County Detention Center, Goldsboro Sheriff Carey A. Winders said Monday.

The Marine, Jhad Antonio Howell, 22, was being investigated by county authorities on charges of breaking and entering and larceny. In the process of handling paperwork related to that arrest, deputies discovered Howell was wanted by the Marine Corps as well.

Howell, of 816 Sandhill Drive in Dudley, was being held without bond until the Marines could arrange to pick him up, according to a release issued by Winders's office Monday.

    You are really a dumb criminal when you committ a crime while running from another. Either dumb or desperate...

    Apparently that was a misprint on WAYNE COUNTY (not wanye). Goldsboro is in WAYNE COUNTY.

    Where the heck is Wanye County? I always thought Goldsboro was in Wayne County. Learn something new every day!
