This is the District 3 Criminal Investigations weekly newsletter.
Harold Lyons 06/16/64
District 3 Investigators obtained warrants on Harold Lyons charging him with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Assault by Strangulation and Communication of a Threat. Mr. Lyons was involved in an aggravated assault in the 1200 block of Moreland Ave. Lyons confronted the victim for no apparent reason and attempted to strangle the victim by grabbing him around the neck then Lyons began to beat him about the face and body. Lyon then went in the kitchen and got two knives then further assaulted the victim causing very serious injuries. Lyons is still at large, he is considered to be very dangerous and we are definitely looking to introduce ourselves to him and assist him with a change of address. If you see him first, DO NOT attempt to apprehend him…call 911 and tell the communicator where you saw him and what he is wearing.
Gary Allen Glasco 09/07/90
District 3 Investigators obtained warrants on Mr. Gary Allen Glasco charging him with 1 count of Larceny of a Motor Vehicle, 3 counts of Felony Break and Enter a Motor Vehicle and 3 counts of Misdemeanor Larceny. Glasco travels around the city going in unlocked cars and then he steals the valuable located inside. Glasco has been arrested in District 3 and charged with several B&E’s to Motor Vehicles and instead of being put in jail he was put on probation. So he gets out of jail and continues his criminal enterprise. Last week, he was caught by District 3 officers in a stolen Audi, the car was stolen from a subdivision near Southpoint Mall. During the ensuing interview with my investigators Glasco told us that the car was unlocked and the keys were on the seat so naturally he took the car and the items inside. We are sure that there are other victims who have not come forward. We have charged him with four cases so far and this investigation continues. Glasco now resides with the Durham County Sheriff at 219 Magnum Street and is under a $45,000.00 bond.
Recently, there was a break-in in the county on West Cornwallis Road that may be connected to some of our burglaries. There were at least two black male suspects. The suspects were seen leaving the area in a Green 4 door Chevy (Unknown Model) bearing NC registration CJK 6592. Right now they are just people of interest but keep an eye out for this car. In the West Cornwallis burglary the car was seen parked in a driveway when a neighbor approached and questioned why the suspects were there they took sped off. If you see the car call 911 or give me a call and we will investigate.
Remember secure your valuables and LOCK your car…Don’t be an easy target!
Until next time, take care and stay safe.
