Robbed on the way to jail… the Statesville Police Department says two individuals reported they were trying to find the Iredell County Jail last night when they stopped and asked for directions on Harrison Street.
Victims say that two black males got in the back seat of the car, pointed handguns and robbed them – getting away with a phone and a watch.
Also last night – a member of Visions Outreach Ministries detained someone at the East Front Street facility until officers arrived. The individual is accused of taking food and spare change from vehicles. Victims decided not to prosecute, but instead try to help the person through their church.
