Reward offered in area larceny
The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office has offered an award of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of a larceny suspect.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a breaking and entering, property damage and larceny last Friday evening on Boverie Street in Supply. The victim reported larceny of jewelry and a handgun.
Anyone with information is asked to contact detective Tony Caison at the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, 253-2777.
Threatening e-mails deemed a hoax
Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office detectives Capt. Gene Caison says a threatening e-mail that has been sent to several Brunswick County residents is a hoax.
“If you get one, contact us or throw it away,” Caison said.
“We want to assure people that there is no one waiting to harm them,” he said.
Caison said sheriff’s detectives have contacted the FBI, who he said, has linked the e-mail scam to Nigeria.
The e-mail states that the sender has been paid to kill the recipient unless the recipient pays the sender a certain amount of money.
“It’s nothing but a scam. These letters have been going to various people at various locations throughout the county. That’s all it is—a scam.”
