Chase Ends With Crash Into Cumberland House

Posted March 13, 2007

— Authorities in Cumberland County are looking for two men who they say led them on a high-speed chase that ended with a crash into a house.

According to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, witnesses called 911 after they saw two men kicking in the front door of a home at 3000 Stoney Court in Hope Mills Tuesday morning. A deputy who was heading into work responded to the call and noticed two men loading the stolen items in their vehicle.

Authorities said the two men led the deputy on a high-speed chase through the area before they crashed their vehicle into a home at 3434 Whipperwill Lane. According to deputies, a deck and table valued at more than $1,000 were destroyed.

Investigators are looking for Danny Shelton, 21, of Fayetteville for questioning. Authorities said Shelton is the co-owner of the wrecked vehicle. Authorities have not yet released any information about the other individual.

If you have any information on Shelton's whereabouts, you are asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500.

    Look at the digenerates in our society. This is pathetic. The biggest kick in the face is that they will only get probation even with their prior criminal history. Too bad the homeowner was not home to meet him with the .45

    Forgive me, God should always start with a capital letter. Again, forgive me for the misspelled words. I am typing real fast.

    The battle is the Lord's, not ours.

    Hoopster, it is Satan that does not care anything about you and he will use whatever it takes including people to destroy you so that you can end up where he is destined to go. If you ask anyone that commits a crime, why did they do what they did, the majority will say that they really do not know why they did what they did. This is because this is a spiritual warfare that we are fighting and not a carnal one. If you have relationship with the Lord, then become intimate enough with god to understand what is going on in the spiritual realm. If you do not have an intimate relationship with God, then you will not understand with your natural mind what is going on in the spiritual realm. And yes, violence does not sole anything. god said that vengeance was his and that He would repay. If we pray,then God can move. If we are going to help God out, then what do we need Him for. Let God be God. His arms are longer and stronger than ours.

    Violence does not solve our problems. Shooting and killing people is not the answer either. But let me remind you that if you cross the line to where you are considered a threat, God bless your soul, because that a_ _ is mine!!!! I pray every night that I would never be put in that situation. I am learning everyday that people do not care about you. They hate to see you doing good. Jealousy is a B _ _ _ _!!

    Thank you for coming into agreeement with me. I am a perfect example also of how prayer can change things and people. I have a 21 year old daughter. She is what society would call a problem child, but I know that my God is going to deliver her from the hands of the enemy. He promised me that He would save my whole house. If we pull together, we can help save a generation. God bless!!!

    I urge more of us to join babyphat and pray for our children, their parents and this nation. Prayer is a powerful weapon that does change lives (one who knows).
