Well it finally looks like for this two day period the Wake Forest Police Department didn’t have to burn gas driving arrests downtown for their free portrait photos. And thankfully we didn’t have a plethora of drug busts. But it looks like financial crimes made a bit of a surge in the few incidents reported.
The Raleigh Police Department was not so lucky and was very busy with 47 calls in the same time period mostly in the Wakefield Plantation area. These included larceny, drugs, weapons, fraud, assault, prostitution, suicide attempt, and forgery. Damn, Wakefield Plantation is more dangerous than I thought! But then again there are a lot of people that live in that very nice area. But then again this couple was just busted there.
