Carthage men charged with beating neighbor

Posted May 7, 2012

— Two Carthage men face charges that they dragged their neighbor from a house in the Carolina Lakes subdivision and beat him.

Moore County Sheriff Lane Carter said that two men forced Billy Joe Brown, 51, out of his friend's house at 385 Heron Road Thursday and dragged him to outside their house at 397 Heron Road. They continuously assaulted Brown, and he suffered serious injuries on his head, face and back, the sheriff said.

Brown, also of Heron Road, was taken to Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst.

Juan Sanchez, 29, and Augustine Sanchez, 33, were charged Friday with first-degree kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Juan Sanchez was given a $105,000 secured bond, and Augustine Sanchez a $100,000 secured bond. Both were scheduled to appear in court May 17.

    Was just reading on the Pilot that people voting are actually asking those at the polls if they want to see their I.D.,they are being asked their name and address,thats it,no documents or actual I.D. required,now don't you just think that is abit odd,or are you one that cares not who really votes for what we do in this country,this country is a safehouse for every illegal who enters our borders and it may nver show but these two as others are more than likely not legally here,and advocates please no reponse is needed,you all have done enough to bring down our country.

    I wonder what Joe Brown did that caused these two characters to go off on him, I suspect that it was either, money, race, booze or drugs, but whatever ol' Joe did or said, it must have being something awful.

    But two against ol' Joe, it was way over the level of what I would have expected.

    I do hope for the sake of the country and it's future generations the mindset that we are responsible for the well being of everyone who enters our borders, both in rendering medical and financial aid will cease,the vast majority of the Hispanics that come here are given liberties no other ethnic group has enjoyed,they enter illegally as no others have since the immigration laws have been enacted,many enjoy medical treatment as no others in non emergency situations and they also are in many cases given some benefits that are being denied to our own,hiding behind the theme of being racist or profiled when demands on them are being made just due to the fact we are over extended and have the right to ask for verification of documents,they have brought this on themselves,with the help of many who already reside here with questionable documents,unlike other immigrants who for the most part come here legally,self sufficient,this one group comes in,illegally,invades our schools,social and med

    muggs, You Said it and I think most agree with you about your comments about True Blue. We need to clean the system . For most people I know and talk to feel the same way. Can not speak for all. But maybe come Election Time this will end.

    The immigration mess in the state of North Carolina is part of the guest worker program put in place for the farmers. It is a matter of unwanted guests and guests not honoring the rules and going home after the season. These guys status is of no matter they need to be prosecuted, if that means deportation let me know if they need a lift.

    mr,and mr sanchez have not had the opportunity to encounter one that is trained and willing to defend themselves , if and when this happens we will read their names again in a different headline!

    trueblue, I know you did not intentionally describe yourself,but with the statement most don't have a CLUE,well you were giving a pretty descript example of that and your knowledge,I think I will have to dismiss you from my selections of those who I give thought to their comments,some actually disagree but with much more intellectual responses,your seem to be from lack of knowledge,and probably without much background in the subject matter you claim to know about,some of us have memories dating back to Ike,and have watched both parties make a mockery of our immigration laws,or I should say lack of,if you like what is goinf on stick with it,it seems to be working for you,myself retired and have no real threat of loss of anything from the invasion will watch and see how you all feel in a few years when they have drained your well dry,but you have a great day.

    dwr1964, your question will not be answered as to the legal status of the two Hispanics,as illegals they are offerded the right to here under Obama law

    Then why have more been deported under Obama than Clinton, Bush, or Bush?......jjordan231179

    Most of these people don't really care about the FACTS! They are too busy trying to bash President Obama and most don't have a CLUE as to what they are talking about.
