If it’s too loud…

 

Sparks police arrested a man who allegedly aimed a shotgun at two people at a party Saturday night after he demanded they turn down the music.

 

Joseph Blackham, 47, of Sparks, remains in Washoe County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm while intoxicated.

 

Sparks police received a call from a person at the party that Blackham had just entered the building in the 700 block of F Street and told several people to turn the music down, Sparks police Lt. Peter Krall said. Blackham then allegedly pointed a shotgun in the direction of at least two people before leaving.

 

Police searched the area and found Blackham coming out of his residence with a 12-gauge shotgun, Krall said. He was taken into custody without incident.

 

 

 

Craigslist post leads to bike theft arrest

 

BOSTON, April 11 (UPI) -- Boston police, acting on a tip from a Craigslist-reading student, said they arrested a man suspected of more than 20 bicycle thefts.

 

Police said a detective posing as a prospective buyer arranged to meet Matthew Berry, 30, of Somerville after a local college student told police he recognized his own stolen bike in Berry's Craigslist posting, The Boston Globe reported Monday.

 

Berry was arrested and investigators said the bike turned out not to belong to the student but it was believed to have been stolen. Police said Berry, who was carrying bolt cutters, pliers and an Allen wrench at the time of his arrest, is believed to be responsible for more than 20 local bike thefts.

 

"He's been doing it for a couple of years," Sgt. Detective Michael Talbot said.

 

Berry pleaded not guilty April 4 to charges of larceny over $250 and possession of burglary tools.

 

$50 for $5

 

Four people have been busted for counterfeiting after cops caught them passing out fake $50 bills in South Carolina.

 

The group, based out of Black Mountain, NC, managed to pass $50,000 in fake bills in various states including Kentucky, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

 

The crooks would take $5 bills, bleach the '5' off and re-printing them with a $50.

 

Bleaching kept the paper in tact along with the security strips and watermarks.

 

The bills were found after a store clerk looked at the water mark and saw that it was a $5, not a $50.

 

The crew managed to spend $50,000 in fake bills before they were caught.
