NC General Statute 14-277.5 provides clear direction for law enforcement for those making false reports concerning mass violence on educational property.
Majority of these start off as an innocent conversation. From there they find themselves on social media platforms and email.
Make no mistake, this carries a Felony charge and will be pursued with every resource I have at my disposal.


§ 14-277.5. Making a false report concerning mass violence on educational property. (a) The following definitions apply in this section: (1) Educational property. – As defined in G.S. 14-269.2. (2) Mass violence. – Physical injury that a reasonable person would conclude could lead to permanent injury (including mental or emotional injury) or death to two or more people. (3) School. – As defined in G.S. 14-269.2. (b) A person who, by any means of communication to any person or groups of persons, makes a report, knowing or having reason to know the report is false, that an act of mass violence is going to occur on educational property or at a curricular or extracurricular activity sponsored by a school, is guilty of a Class H felony. (c) The court may order a person convicted under this section to pay restitution, including costs and consequential damages resulting from the disruption of the normal activity that would have otherwise occurred on the premises but for the false report, pursuant to Article 81C of Chapter 15A of the General Statutes.

Situational Awareness - Coyotes

While the statistical probability of a coyote attack is low and most certainly significantly less than that of a domestic dog, there are certain actions and behaviors that can minimize the threat of a coyote attack even further. Coyotes are sighted daily in Lee county by motorist, hunters, farmers and even those that live in neighborhoods.  Pictured is a coyote from one of my staff members trail cameras that was captured in mid November as it followed a small herd of deer on Sheriff Watson Road.

The following advice is suggested in the event you come in contact with a coyote;

• Do not approach a coyote. Remain a safe and respectful distance from the animal. 

• Always supervise small children when outdoors, and remind them not to approach coyotes or other animals.  


• Don’t be intimidated by a coyote. Make noise and let the coyote know that it is not welcome near you. Throwing small objects such as rocks or tennis balls can encourage the animal to leave the area.

• Coyotes are predatory animals.  Be attentive to your family pets when outside. Coyotes have been know to attack whitetail deer and fawns, so a small family pet is easy prey.


• If you encounter an extremely aggressive or sick coyote (stumbling, listless, drooling excessively) contact our Animal Control for immediate assistance. Coyotes can contract diseases such as rabies and canine distemper.

The NC Wildlife Division is currently working on a draft Coyote Management Program. Please click here for more information on these animals and what the State of NC is doing in regards to tracking and managing them.

Black Ice Alert

While driving on black ice is similar in some regards to driving on snow, the biggest difference between the two is the amount of traction the vehicle retains.
With snow, there is still some traction; whereas on ice, there is no traction, and that's where it becomes very dangerous.  
Due to a vehicle's lack of traction on ice, the basic rule for driving on black ice is to stay calm and let the vehicle pass over it.  Stay alert and take your time!
