Do you not find it funny that swink is now facing jail time and has a court date coming up soon then this happens. Swink really should be sheriff as he does his job for him and probably isnt much more crooked. Swink helps the sheriff and he helps him not to mention swink gets rid of a little meth compatition. Jones has been sheriff for how long now and this and a few petty busts is all he has to show for how much of a budget he gets for drug operations. I'am glad to see these low lifes go down but any other lawman would have done a hell of a lot more unless he was on the take.

I am not giving JONES credit for anything my credit goes to ellis and his team, im sure swink helped get these people busted because one of the girls is local and the guy from drexel was a man of his (small dealer) however SWINK probably will be wearing a badge instead of a HANDCUFF because he is the only METH DEALER i know that never goes to prison. with that being said. I want something done with these damn CRACK dealers,$$$$$dula town down in the hollar,$$$$$$$town and country wide open every st,$$$$$$$$$piney rd caldwell side wide open.do you ever see them in cuffs NO? why is this? that is all id like to know.burke co has been throwing down on there side of piney rd. but dulatown is really pissing me off that THEY want do anything at all and there are so many KIDS here.

I can tell you they will not be busting anyone in dula town, they dont make the same kind of money off crack dealers. Crack dealers dont show up for court and they skip town plus I think there is more going on at ccsd then we know. I have a friend that works there and he told me that the sheriff gets calls everyday about dula town but he doesnt seem to ever do anything about it. I think they have to plan things around the swat team and they are always out drinking in hickory most weekends. They get drunk and party it up all weekend so they can only operate during the week but im sure they have an excuse for those days too.

yea i saw swink in court last week, the DA didnt go along with what swink's lawyer wanted so it is continued till 5/2/2011. i know swink is crooked and work's with the sheriff but i do believe they have used him up and now look's like he may be facing time. If you want this piece of crap off the street and out of the community show up on 5/2/2011 and talk with the DA before court and let him know how you feel and what you know. i will be there hope to see lot's of other's.

Three Arrested on Drug Charges In Burke County
3/9/2011 2:43:29 PM

Gregory Allen Lovelace, 41 Richard Ashley Rich, 29 Lauren Nicole Ramsey, 18

Gregory Allen Lovelace, Richard Ashley Rich, and Lauren Nicole Ramsey have been arrested and charged with possession of immediate precursors to manufacture methamphetamine.

On Tuesday, March 8, 2011, while working a methamphetamine lab in the city of Morganton, members of the Burke County Narcotics Task Force received information that the above subjects were purchasing precursors used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

The Burke County Narcotics Task Force began active surveillance assisted by SBI and ATF agents.

The suspect vehicle was stopped on Enola Road just outside the city limits of Morganton. Located in the vehicle were key components used in the manufacture, preparation, and distribution of methamphetamine.

Also located in the vehicle was drug paraphernalia commonly used to introduce methamphetamine into the blood stream.

All three subjects were taken into custody without incident. One of the suspects, Richard Rich, was arrested on February 3, 2011 and charged with the manufacture of methamphetamine when he was located at an active meth lab in eastern Burke County.

A $10,000.00 secured bond was set for each subject and first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday, March 9, 2011. although burke co got these they were supplieng lenoir. so theres just thankfully more poison off our streets. also on one of these bust they could not even leave the residence with the subjects due to him activley making meth and had he of put it down they would of blown up them self and the task force. so they had to wait until he kept burping it off and then arrest him such a darn shame, this stuff is so poisioness and it's going into so many peoples bodies.

Well its like I said, I know some people that work there but they just have to keep their mouths closed if they like getting paid but they are as sick of it as you are. The sheriff has been getting rid of deputies that wont play ball and he spends more time chasing his own employees around than he does chasing drug dealers. I dont know about the guns but I cant see a regular road deputy doing that, it wouldnt suprise me that the ICE unit and the swat team could be doing wrongfull activities. Those units get paid well and answer to no one, they also are never seen around the office and if you belong to them you can get away with anything. Drunk driving, getting drunk and going to the county gun range and firing automatic weapons, driving county vehicles to parties just to name a few.

well does anyone know of an agency other than ccsd that would help us with the dula town situation. it is horrible we cant even walk in church with our bibles without hiding our tithe money inside our bible, then we see people pulled over in the chi=urch parking lot lighting up crack,it has been reported over and over and over. but when the heat comes on they over flow to town and country. so who can i call. the guns are some of what is missing from ccsd and i know because my neighbors son trades crack for hot items and i saw a deputy and reported it trading a gun for crack. nothing was ever done. GAGE buddy there going to eventualy get you. just you wait, "GOD DONT LIKE UGLY ESPECIALLY IN HIS OWN CHURCH CONGREGATION PARKING LOT".

My best advice to you is forget about ccso at least while jones is sheriff. You need to get your church together as one and maybe even get some other local churchs together with you then go as one group to a county commission meeting. The county commission controls the sheriffs money and many do not like the sheriff so you will find more sympathy with them than anyone. They cant remove the sheriff but they can make life hard on him much like the crackheads do you. Dont fall for the community watch crap because thats just a diversion the sheriff likes to use to make it seem he cares, I know this for sure. Call the SBI and report the drug dealing that goes untouched by ccso and it would be good if your entire church did it as well so ccso cant single anyone out. Another good resource is action 9 news and wbtv, they have a web site that you can report things like this. Most important thing to do is not forget 3 years from now and go and vote his butt out.

I can tell you this much, the sheriff could care less about any of the black neighborhoods and I'll tell you why. 1. ccso looks at it as a lost cause that cant be fixed, 2. they can see from low black turnout at the polls that they have nothing to loose by ignoring you and they already figure the one's that do will vote dem anyways, 3. you let them get away with it by not getting together and going to county meetings like the other guy said. I can tell you these things because I have heard them first hand just like the sheriff telling deputies to ride though the area and make a showing so you all will lay off him, otherwise he could care less. Be a little more organized and make a change in a few years.

That Cannon girls names popping up lots lately. is she the daughter of Jeff Cannon, drug dealer, shoplifter, woman beater, all in all criminal. Grand daughter of Red Cannon who shot a construction worked over some electric drill or other type of instrument many years ago did some prison time?

If so I guess the old saying the apple dont fall far from the tree. Seems criminals breed criminals in that bunch and didn't the grand parents raise the grand kid the one whos name keeps popping up was just up for shop lifting a few weeks ago in court. My lord who can a murder raise a decent kid? But then again that dss office is letthing felons have foster kids even paying them to takeum in. Caldwell county needs to clean house and Jones aint the only one needing a new job, his staff, dss, then keep on going down the line. IF half the officals did half the jobs they say they do the baker girl wouldnt be dead, that cannon girl would not of been raised by a murder now doing dope getting in trouble and jones sleeping with the enemy. BUt what do we know other than the truth HeLL maybe we ought to run for election and get som AA degrees help them good ole boys get the jobs done right & get dss jobs done PERIOD.

Funny you should mention the bakers, ccso had been out to the home several times when they lived in caldwell so had DSS. Jones is just collecting a pay check and letting his chosen ones do whatever they can get away with behind a badge. I wont even get started on DSS because the baker case speaks volums about them. If the SBI ever did an undercover investigation on ccso it would finally wake this county up.

You sure aren't whistling dixie there. The felons with foster kids had one get locked up who was attending the gateway school, and they got their door open up to take another one in already. IF they don't have the same one back in there from jail. Now that's a kid headed to prison and a long hard road! Now they cant even let their own flesh and blood son go to public school due to his misbehavior.
Lord Help us all this county's has got are a bunch of inefficient idiots doing jobs that take efficient concerned intelligent people to perform. Jones and his trained monkeys do not fit that profile and the dss workers, well coloring books is all I have figured out they are really qualified to do. Like I said before we have to get these yo yo's out of the jobs they some how are hired or voted into and get good citizens in before we end up a county of misfits, drug dealers and dead kids/adults and only god knows what else. So vote apply for jobs at those place and protest by writing the paper anything you can think of to be a thorn in their sides.

We are responsible for the good and the bad that has happened in our county. If you aren't happy, tell someone and make sure they do the same. We won't be fooled next time at election time when we are lied to with a smile and a handshake. I think people are starting to see these politicians for what they really are, liars and cheats.
