Posted August 4, 2011

— Three people were charged late Wednesday following a chase in which a Sanford Police Department cruiser was rammed, police said Thursday.

Officers responded to a Food Lion store at 2581 Hawkins Ave., where three people were reportedly trying to pass a counterfeit check, police said. The three fled the store and headed north on Hawkins Avenue in a silver Ford Escape.

The Escape rammed a patrol car as an officer tried to stop it, causing both vehicles to wreck at Charlotte Avenue and Ninth Street, police said. No injuries were reported.

Toboris Yanton Buie, 36, of 101 Saint James St. in Raeford, was charged with careless and reckless driving, speeding, driving left of center, improper passing, failure to stop for a red light, failure to stop for police, felony speeding to elude arrest and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He was being held in the Lee County jail under a $100,000 bond.

Janay Antoinette Brooks, 23, of 7227 Bea Melvin Drive in Stedman, was charged with obtaining property by false pretense, forgery, uttering and possession of a counterfeit instrument. She was being held under a $26,000 bond.

Marcus Lavar Autry, 27, of 1304 Hillsboro St. in Fayetteville, was charged with forgery and uttering. He was being held under a $2,500 bond.

    let's see, prison time for everyone, no driver's license ever again, no vehicles registered in their name ever again, heavy fines, pay for all damages, pay the health insurance company for any medical expense the officer incurred and award the officer a large sum of money for general principal. that should do it.

    This is too bad for the crooks, while you would hope they spend some time in jail, it will most likely be time served, suspended sentence and place on probation. We'll hear more from them later on in another news article.

    What kind of names the parents these days arm their crime bound children. Might be from south of the border...
    What difference does it make what their names are? It is so irrelevant. Has nothing to do with what they did.
    They will get away with this crime just like they have probably otten away with everything else they have ever done.
