— Rocky Mount police were searching Thursday for a man who they believe has committed six larcenies at a Target store in the past 35 days.

Jerrold Duane Mason, 25, is wanted on outstanding warrants for felony and misdemeanor larcenies at the Target store at 731 Sutters Creek Blvd.

Mason has been seen leaving the store parking lot in two vehicles: a light blue Cadillac and a gold 2002 Buick Century, with North Carolina license plate YZN-9500.

Anyone with information about Mason's whereabouts should call police Detective Brandon Medina at 252-972-1545 or Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in certain felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

Mason has two past convictions for larceny and served a 6-month sentence in 2009 for a drug possession conviction, according to state Department of Correction records. He was placed on probation in February after being convicted of driving with a revoked license.

    Larceny? Drug possession? Connection? Hmmm...

    That's what being soft on crime gets you...continually seeking the same people. Let 'em out and then start looking for them again. The court system should do like the animal shelters do with dogs...inplant a chip in them so that you can find them easier. I guess if the courts were tougher on crime and actually locked up criminals, they'd have to cut some jobs because there wouldn't be such a revolving door of criminals that need to be tracked down, caught, processed, jailed, defended, supervised, etc. The system keeps people working, but at the expense of innocent victims.
