Police arrest one of Fayetteville's 'most wanted'

Posted October 13, 2008

— Fayetteville police conducting a traffic stop Saturday identified and arrested a man wanted for more than a dozen robberies at local stores.

Harold Ronald Davis, 44, was one of Fayetteville's most wanted for what police charge were his roles in about a dozen robberies of convenience and grocery stores, including Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Family Dollar, Big Lots and Food Lion stores.

He was taken to the Cumberland County Jail and held on a $7,500 secured bond.

Davis has been convicted of burglary, breaking-and-entering or larceny nine times since 1981, according to state Department of Correction records. He was most recently released from jail in November 2007. He has also been convicted of second-degree kidnapping.

    $7500 is a joke. This habitual offender should have had at least a $100,000 bond, preferably none. But being Cumberland County, that how it is. He'll commit another when, not if, but when he makes bond. Hopefully he'll run into someone who will "cure" him of this affliction.

    Now we see why criminals remain criminals, and acts continue to get worse. 7,500 bond what a joke, and the judge who gave him that is a joke. That is why these people continue to do what they do. He is out and robbing someone else to get the 7,500 back. "Most Wanted" "7,500" something is wrong with this equation, because it does not add up.
