Lenoir man arrested for stalking and assault with a deadly weapon
A 911 call for help ended with the arrest of Corey Daniel Hamrick-22 years old, 740 Pleasant Hill Road Lenoir, NC. A distraught female reported that Corey Hamrick was attempting to run her (and a coworker) off the road. Morganton Public Safety officers were able to locate Hamrick following the victim on West Fleming Drive. A traffic stop and interview with Hamrick discovered that he was following his former girlfriend in an attempt to see whoshe was meeting. After interviewing the victim and Hamrick it is believed that Hamrick has been illegally stalking the victim for some time. On Saturday, Feb 14th, the victim reported that Hamrick followed her and a coworker inside Walmart. When the victim and her coworker/friend left Walmart, Hamrick aggressively pursued them in his vehicle. According to the victim, speeds reached 70mph on West Fleming/East Fleming Drive as they attempted to flee from Hamrick. The victim reported that Hamrick attempted to ram her car while traveling on East Fleming Drive. In an attempt to avoid being rammed, the victim’s car spun around in the road facing the opposite direction. Hamrick continued to pursue the victim until he was stopped by MDPS officers. Hamrick was charged with Stalking and two felony counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill. Since Hamrick and the victim were in a prior relationship, the case is being treated as domestic violence.Hamrick was incarcerated under a 48 hour hold and a $10,000 secured bond. Hamrick has an initial appearancein Burke County District Court Monday February 16th.

Morganton Public Safety Battles Structure Fire in Auto Repair Shop
Morganton Department of Public Safety was dispatched to a report of a structure fire at 2:18 pm on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at Jim's Service Center on Carbon City Road. Upon arrival, firefighters found the building fully involved with heavy black smoke visible for several miles. All occupants of the building were quickly confirmed to be out of the building, allowing firefighters to concentrate on attacking the fire. Intial reports of expolosions and the heavy volume of fire kept everyone back away from the scene while firefighters with Morganton Public Safety set up defensive operations to protect nearby businesses while gaining control of the blaze. Public Safety units worked at the scene for over four hours, using aerial water streams, handlines and a backhoe from the City of Morganton Pubic Works to finally bring the fire under control and extinguish it. Investigation revealed that a gasoline tank from a vehicle that was being removed for repair fell of of a jack that was used to lower it, causing gasoline to spill out and the vapors traveled the short distance to the woodstove in the rear of the repair bay, causing a flash fire which quickly grew out of control of fire extinguishers. All employees of the business were able to escape without injury. Fire crews cleared the scene at 6:24 pm.

Morganton Public Safety Responds to Fire in Church Building
At 10:01 AM on February 8, 2015, the Morganton Department of Public Safety was dispatched to a report of smoke coming from the New Hope In Christ Church at 509 Bouchelle Street. Arriving units found this building to not have a fire, but found an older church building just down the street with smoke coming out of it. The building is also owned by the New Hope In Christ Church, but is not currently being used for services. First arriving units found the single story block building to have smoke coming out of the open front door. Upon entry, firefighters encountered flames and high heat conditions with heavy black smoke. Firefighters made a successful attack on the fire, saving the building from structural damage. Only some of the contents and a few pews were burned, but there was considerable heat and smoke damage. No occupants or firefighters were injured. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the department.

Morganton Dept. of Public Safety warns stores of check fraud.
We have had a rash of fraudulent payroll checks being cashed at several different stores in town.  The checks are fake and the offenders have fake identification matching the payee name on the checks.  We encourage store owners/employees to start calling the banks to verify if the checks are valid or not.  If it is on a weekend and the banks are closed, don’t cash the check if you are not familiar with the customer.  We also encourage the owners/clerks to start making photo copies of the identification they are given by the customer trying to cash a check.  The stores who cash the fake checks are ultimately responsible for the funds and will not be reimbursed by most banks.  We further encourage stores to start checking identification when customers are using credit/debit cards.  Identity theft and stolen credit card cases are on the rise all over the world.
