    I don't ever remember seeing a lookout or wanted advertisement for this 'dangerous' man??

    Good! At least we know no one will be hurt by this man!

    Glad he turned himself in..........it would have been a shame for an innocent person to have been harmed because of him....!!

    Oh well...guess we have to pay for a trial now.

    "outstanding domestic violence order"

    I certainly hope the police are monitoring the person about whom this order is placed! Based on the tone of the article and what Steve said about the BOLO, my best guess is that this person may need to be protected.

    Hope they catch him soon!

    I listened to the BOLO go out last night on the scanners. This guy sounds seriously evil the way they were talking about him. And I suspect that unless he just lies down and completely gives up when confronted, we won't have to worry about the cost of another trial.

    I went to high school with this guy. Not a surprise to see him wanted here from what I remember him to be back in the days. If his record starts in 1993, he would have been a sophmore then. Man, I guess some people really never do change. Sux to be him right about now. Rock on Cary High, Class of 95!!!!

    I think it's probably Voorhees lane.

  • parr4246 Jan 21, 2008

    wonder if the address for the guy is correct?? I can't pull it up on the Wake County website......

    Wonder why the other story about armed robberies in Holly springs is not open for comments.....

    There seems to be a ramping up of robberies (business) in HS - Sonic was broken into and the entire safe hauled out a couple months back and now two armed robberies within sight of each other - no more than a quarter mile apart from each other. In fact, the Exxon is right across the street from Sonic and the Wendy's is maybe 2/10ths of a mile away from them.
