Harrison was placed in the Halifax County Jail under a $11,000 bond. His next court date is set for Dec. 7.

    $11,000 bond, is this supposed to be a joke? I have seen nothing but low ball bonds for dangerous criminals in Halifax County. Did the law enforcement in that county make the judges mad? Wake up Halifax County!

    $11,000 bond - 15% of that is $1,650 (bail bondsman fee) He will be out in no time and they will not be able to find him for ANOTHER year.
