Did you know??

Many places in the U.S. claim to be the first to celebrate Memorial Day, but there's only one small town officially identified as the birthplace. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed legislation stating that Waterloo, New York, is the originator of Memorial Day in the U.S. The town first observed a day to remember fallen soldiers on May 5, 1866.

We pause to remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom!

We hope you have a safe and blessed Memorial Day Weekend!

Violent Felon Convicted of Fraud and Firearm Offenses

RICHMOND, Va. – A North Carolina man was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in prison for conspiring to commit mail and bank fraud and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

According to court documents, Lareese Martelles Mallety, 25, of Raeford, conspired with several others to steal mail from local business parks and cash checks obtained through these thefts. Between July 2018 and his arrest in October, Mallety repeatedly traveled to Richmond from his home near Fayetteville, North Carolina to commit these crimes. He and others used pry bars to vandalize secure business mailboxes and thereby gain access to the incoming and outgoing mail of over 70 local businesses. Mallety then recruited homeless individuals found nearby to cash checks obtained through these thefts. Mallety and others used razor blades and typewriters to alter the stolen checks and make them payable to the homeless recruits. In just three months, these recruits cashed more than a dozen checks totaling over $36,000, returning all of the money to Mallety as directed.

Mallety was apprehended in October 2018 while traveling to Richmond in furtherance of this scheme. A search of his rental car recovered a pry bar, razor blades, a typewriter, three stolen U.S. mail parcels, and 45 checks stolen from local businesses worth nearly $120,000. A stolen handgun was found under Mallety’s seat, which he admitted bringing for protection. A nine-time convicted felon, Mallety carried a handgun throughout this conspiracy, often showing it to homeless recruits when directing them to cash stolen checks. Mallety has two prior convictions for conspiring to commit armed robbery and has previously been convicted of a possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), which is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Peter R. Rendina, Inspector in Charge of the Washington Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, made the announcement after sentencing by Senior U.S. District Judge Robert E. Payne. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kaitlin G. Cooke prosecuted the case.

A copy of this press release is located on the website of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. Related court documents and information are located on the website of the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia or on PACER by searching for Case No. 3:18-cr-160.

Contraband Cigarette Seizure

On May 21, 2019 at 2356 HRS, a Patrol Deputy with the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a 2019 Ford Expedition (rental vehicle), bearing Ontario license plates, on Interstate 81 northbound at mile marker 225.
The deputy subsequently made contact with the driver Kahtan Seidi, 28, a resident of Clifton, New Jersey.

During the course of the encounter, the deputy observed a large amount of cigarettes inside Seidi’s vehicle, partially covered in the passenger seat. The deputy also observed that the entire passenger compartment of the SUV was full of cases and cartons of cigarettes. Investigation revealed that Seidi was on the way to New York City with a load of contraband cigarettes.

Seidi was charged with a single felony count of § 58.1-1017.1. Possession with intent to distribute tax-paid, contraband cigarettes.

Fifteen hundred and fifty five (1,555) cartons of contraband cigarettes were seized.

Cigarettes in New York City garner $13.00 per pack, making this intercepted load of contraband’s street value in NYC $202,150.00

Cartons: 1,555
Packs: 15,550
Cigarettes: 311,000

That moment you realize that most laws are for revenue generation rather than safety.

Thank you officer. My dog was shot by a Newport cigarette

So you literally robbed a guy of $200k worth of merchandise, and you want a pat on the back? GDIAF.

Contraband... Cigarettes.... Say it again. More slowly. Now go sit in the corner and think about all the wrong decisions you've made in your pitiful politician life

TAXATION IS THEFT.

Meanwhile 2 kilos of coke drove by while they had this car pulled over but y’all are doing great, keep up the good work

Imagine thinking this matters 😂

Redcoats gotta redcoat.

Taxation is Theft.

Taxation is theft

Thank the lord you guys saved us from a plant stuffed in to thin paper rolls. Disaster averted 😂😂

Why is this news? Who cares about a guy trying to make a buck selling CIGARETTES. Do something real and stop the real drugs from pouring out of our county.

Who was the victim?

Thank you for stopping these dangerous cigarette smugglers instead of actually doing something useful for society. Bless 🙏

Yeah. Really using the taxpayers dollars well. Don’t worry about the actual crimes that involve victims....

That'll stop all those teenagers from smoking for sure this time!! MuH tAx ReVeNuE!!!

I'm just doing my job.- Nazi's Also I'm just doing my job- Police

Thank you government for treating us like 15 year old highschool kids

What is the supposed lost tax revenue attributed to those cigarettes? And what was the cost in manpower, equipment, and liability spent on this operation? And how many violent crimes occurred during those hours and what was the police response times and solve rates for those? You might wanna remove “protect and serve” from your motto.

Thank you for removing those assault tobaccos from our dangerous streets.

"Made contact?" What was the probable cause for pulling him over in the first place? Unless there was a suspicion of an actual crime that could clearly be articulated by the officer, then the original stop was unlawful and a responsible judge will throw the case out. PS - having Ontario plates is not a crime.

What is the exact number of cigarettes I can have in my possession before it becomes "conspiracy" or "smuggling" or "contraband"? If that guy purchased those cigarettes legally, you ain't got nothing but illegal search and seizure. This poor guy came down to stock up on smokes. No more illegal than the duty free shop at the airport. The California justice system wouldn't even prosecute this bs. Way to go Augusta co. I'd bet a paycheck 3 DUI's passed this "cigarette stop" unscathed. Smh

Taxation is theft. The government wants to tax everything, and if they can’t, it’s illegal. Wow.

Everyone will sleep safer tonight.

Doing God’s work. Glad those Newports are off the street.

Ours was stolen a couple of months ago from Chunky Baptist Church. Different vehicle description but what a coincidence that they stole the very same thing off our church van!

Thankful for security cameras!

There was a thwarted burglary less than a week ago at the sweet water church in Moselle. I understand there were possibly three that fled to a vehicle and speed away.

Wow! And to think not long ago we had to pay people to have that done. 😜

Sad

Do they not fear the Lord?

God knows!!

People r pure evil!!! I hate a thief but to steal from a church is a whole new level of LOW! 🤬🤬🤬

Looks like the right rear door glass and quarter glass may be broken out .

Call the scrap yards

Have people not learned that most everyone has cameras on their property these days? It’s all because of people like them.

Looks like my truck

Michael Wood Jr.

Are you serious...

Check with the scrap yard and see if anybody has tried to sell one.

Hope they don’t come up chandler lane JS

That’s so horrible!! 😡

Wow! That’s like stealing a Bible!😱

What a shame,that is just sorry!!! I hope you catch them !!!! SOMEBODY knows who’s vehicle that is !!!

Man that’s sad

Hope they catch them

What a shame

Do people not realize or just don't care that we have a here after?

Sorry person
