Crime reports

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Update: Joseph K. Darnell, 18, Ramblewood Drive, is due in General Sessions Court on Oct. 27. Darnell is charged with five counts of the misdemeanor offence of contributing to the delinquency of a child. The other charges against him mentioned in the Crime Reports in the Sept. 30 Tribune have been dropped, according to a court record produced after the police report. Darnell was the host of a party on Endsley Rankin Road on Sept. 5 to which police were called because of loud noise. According to the report by Marshall County Sheriff's Deputy Matt Owens, "Darnell was then advised that several underage people were consuming alcohol. Darnell advised he did know they were, but advised he could not control what they did. Darnell was advised he would possibly be charged for allowing it to occur since he was having the party."

A Lewisburg resident has become the victim of a fraud perpetrated through Craigslist.org, the Internet site for classifieds. The victim stated to Lewisburg Police Officer Steve Sanders Jr. that he agreed to purchase a 2005 Nissan Quest for $4,000 from a seller in Las Vegas. The money was sent via Western Union on Sept. 29, but the victim has been unable to make any further contact with the seller and has not received the vehicle. Craigslist does advise users to "deal locally with folks you can meet in person" and goes on to say, "never wire funds via Western Union...anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer."
