Bogus 911 call leads to four arrests

TARBORO — The Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office made four arrests Thursday after they tried to serve warrants on a suspect that was wanted in Conetoe.

As they were attempting to serve the warrants, Edgecombe County Sheriff’s 911 dispatchers received a call about shots being fired at a different location from Tanika Bullock Winnegan, 24, of Pinehurst Homes Apt. 16, Tarboro.

After following up on the call, deputies learned the call was a false report in an attempt to lure deputies away from the Conetoe residence so George Allen Jones, 31, of 140 Davenport Country Lane, Conetoe, could evade capture.

Deputies were finally able to get Jones into custody an arrest him on warrants on him. After Jones was taken into custody he was carried before the magistrate and charged with two counts of driving while license revoked, driving while impaired, speeding, injury to personal property, resist, obstruct or delay public officers and assault on a female. He was placed in the Edgecombe County Detention Center under an $11,000 secured bond.

Deputies arrested Winnegan for making the false call to dispatchers. She was charged with resist, obstruct and delay public officers, misuse of 911 system and false report to police station. She was jailed under a $500 secured bond.

Deputies also arrested two females for failing to open the door when they were knocking to make the service on the warrants for Jones.

Arrested were 42-year-old Glenda Jean Hall and 41-year-old Joy Denise Harper, both of 122 Davenport Country Lane, in Conetoe and charged both with resist, obstruct and delay public officers. They were both placed in jail under a $500 secured bond.

Jones has a court date set for August 15, while the three females are set for August 23 in Edgecombe County District Court.

Jones also has two prior driving while impaired convictions where he served time in the North Carolina Department of Corrections according to their website. He also has a driving while license revoked conviction as well.
