Chatham men charged in theft of 140 chickens

Posted March 31, 2011

— Two Chatham County men have been accused of stealing 140 chickens, according to the sheriff's office.

Roberto Espana Perez, 38, and Samuel Lemmons Perez, 25, both of 3640 McLaurin Road in Bear Creek, were arrested Tuesday in connection with the thefts of chickens belonging to Charles Moore.

Maj. Gary Blakenship said that Moore reported last week that chickens were being stolen from his chicken houses.

A deputy keeping an eye on Moore's property early last Tuesday noticed a truck that didn't belong to him pulling out from a driveway, Blakenship said. The deputy stopped the truck and found chickens in the back of it.

Roberto Perez and Samuel Perez were each charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny and second-degree trespassing. They were given separate $2,500 secured bonds and scheduled to appear in court May 9.

    "Pro-Invasion" sounds a wee bit "Anti-American", does it not? Would a person or persons actively engaged in pro-invasion lobbying and support be thought to have America's best interest in mind, or the best interests of the invaders themselves? The road to hell is paved with good intentions. We can't keep this up, even FRANCE is finally addressing the problem of illegal immigration. ;)

    Mr. Middle of the Road -- People on here like to use the word Liberal to bash just as much as they use the word Ignorant. All I have to say to both is; Yawn!

    LongWayHome, you can always tell when someone knows they are wrong and have lost the argument. They hurl what they consider to be an insulting label at you. Like calling you a 'liberal.' And I guess they don't realize that the Bible tells us to go and be 'liberal.' It never in one place says go and be 'conservative'.

    So Smith, you think it ok for you to express your opinion, but not ok for the 'pro-invasion' lobby to express their opinion?

    "And if you think his comment was okie dokie, then you harbor racist tendencies yourself."

    His comment was spot on.

    There are probably more illegals in that area than anywhere in the state.

    See... this is what happens when you supporters of illegals keep turning a blind eye to the problem.

    Most Americans are highly suspicious of EVERY "Mexican" they see now.... and the horror stories of be-headings and public murders in the streets of public officials is very disconcerting.

    So now we want picture ID's to vote, and no more using consulate ID's for services, etc.

    When we do not enforce our immigration laws... then it is left up to the citizenry to fight back in whatever ways they can.... and stereo-typing every Mexican as illegal is the result of this.

    This is not racist - it is reality.

    Nonetheless... these "wonderful Americans" were caught stealing chickens.

    Hopefully... when the new chicken processing plant opens up there, problems like this will go away.

    Gee, montyburns.....I've been known to post some of them "liberal horseturd posts" (too funny) myself......and I agree with with what you said. Imagine that. I will assume, then, that we both also agree that common sense and reason should prevail over emotionally-charged, hysterical drama and lame excuses....and our open-border policy is not necessarily working out to America's advantage. As Americans, I also believe that we have a right to express our concerns about OUR country AS legal citizens, and would also suggest that the pro-invasion lobby should stick a sock in it. ;)

    I'm sick of you bigots

    With a name like gogreen I'd expect nothing less then liberal horseturd posts. Everything that hints at race in any way is racism. I suppose if I said go run through the felony mugshots and tell me if some races are more represented then others That would also be a racist comment.
