Shots Fired At House

They shot several times at her house.  Wilkes Sheriff’s Officials were called to a shooting on Monday.  A resident on the Pilgrim Baptist Church Road said that she was inside her house when she heard several gunshots outside and heard a car pulling away.  The homeowner went outside and found several holes in her front window and siding on the house.  The shooters used a BB gun.  Deputies found several BB’s at the scene.  There was a total of 13 holes in the window and house.  The victim stated that they had no idea who might have done the shooting and there was no description given of the vehicle the shooter or shooters were in.  Damages to the house are estimated at 500 dollars.


From Shoplifting to Other Charges

What started out as shoplifting ended in arrest on multiple charges.  Monday afternoon Wilkesboro Police were called to Walmart regarding a shoplifter being detained by Loss Prevention.  The man was seen hiding merchandise in his pants and trying to leave the store without paying.  Police determined that the shoplifter, Richard Petty Anderson of Moravian Falls, also had an open warrant for child support.  Then while Anderson was walking with police across the parking lot,  he dropped a glass smoking pipe.  So Anderson was arrested and charged with larceny, non-support of minor, and possession of drug paraphernalia. 


North Wilkesboro Christmas Cheer 

The 2011 North Wilkesboro Christmas Cheer Project is underway. The Town of North Wilkesboro has sponsored the Christmas Cheer Project for families within the Town for many years. This tradition originated during Johnny Walker’s tenure as Chief of Police between 1936-1953 and has been faithfully carried out since that time.  Names of elderly and needy families who live in the North Wilkesboro city limits are collected in the Clerk’s Office by referrals and telephone calls.  Names are reviewed by the Christmas Cheer Committee to determine their eligibility.  Funds for this project are solicited by the Mayor, Town Commissioners and media advertisements.  Contributions for this project are received from businesses and private citizens.  300 boxes are assembled by volunteers and Town personnel and will be delivered on Thursday, December 23rd. Recipients must be at home in order to receive a food box.  To make a contribution, send it to North Wilkesboro Christmas Cheer Fund, PO Box 218, North Wilkesboro.  Call 667-7129 for more information.


EAS Test Today at 2pm

Today, television and radio stations across the state and country will participate in the first ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). The national test is today at 2 p.m. eastern standard time.  Regularly scheduled television, radio, cable and satellite shows will be interrupted.  The public will hear a message indicating that "This is a test."  Under the FCC's rules, all stations are required to receive and transmit presidential EAS messages to the public.  A national test helps federal partners and EAS participants determine the reliability of the system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers nationally and regionally.  The EAS is a national alert and warning system established to enable the President of the United States to address the American public during emergencies.  NOAA's National Weather Service, governors, state and local emergency authorities also may use the system to issue local alerts.  The National test today at 2pm is being conducted by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as part of ongoing efforts to keep the nation safe during emergencies and prepare for all hazards.

Saturday Shooting in Wilkes

One person has died and another is in critical condition as of Monday after a shooting early Saturday morning.  According to Capt David Carsons of the Wilkes County Sheriff’s Department, a call of a breaking and entering in progress at 1532 Sparta Road came in about 3:30 Saturday morning.  While Deputies were en route, they received another call about a shooting at the same location.  Deputies arrived and found two people who had been shot:  David Cynor, a white male age 23 of North Wilkesboro, and Sarah Seagraves, a white female age 22.  The owner of the property, Steve Whitley, stayed at the building due to a break-in on Friday night.  Whitley couldn’t secure the building from the first break-in and believed thieves might return.  Saturday morning Whitley heard voices outside and called 911.  When two people entered the building, Whitley fired 3 to 4 rounds from a small caliber handgun.  Both Cynor and Seagraves were shot and taken to Baptist Hospital.  Cynor died Saturday night, and Monday, Seagraves was in critical and unstable condition.  Whitley has not been charged in the shooting.  Sheriff’s Officials are still investigating and believe others were involved.
