Break ins - Jurisdiction - vehicles

The persons responsible for breaking into the businesses listed above were arrested within 72 hours of the break-ins........and the majority of the stolen property was recovered. Hmm...sounds like Leland's Police might actually know what they're doing afterall. All municipal police agenices have investigative and arrest authority for all NC offenses (criminal and traffic) within their jurisdictions (obviously) plus one mile from the farthest point of their geographic boundaries. Its called "extraterritorial jurisdiction". Incidentally...No state troopers released any one stopped by a leland police officer. While they possess state-wide jurisdiction, they do not possess the specific authority to release someone detained by a local law enforcement officer. Not all of the vehicles purchased by Leland were from a GHSP Grant. In fact, all of the Dodge Chargers, except one, were purchased with the approval of the elected council. One was purchased on a grant. I would correct the remainder of the incorrect information here, but I have better things to do with my saturday morning.
