Troubleshooters: Pet daycare owners had criminal record

READ MORE: Troubleshooters: Pet daycare owners had criminal record
NEW HANOVER COUNTY -- A New Hanover County woman says she didn't get what she paid for when she hired a local pet sitter. Nearly a month after coming home to pet feces all over her house Kathy Page was still waiting for a refund and the key to her house. Page said, "It was remarkable, there were five different piles of dog feces throughout the house. In the kitchen there were three different areas where he urinated." Page paid $270 for a pet sitter to take care of her dog and cat while she took a week-long vacation earlier this month. Her usual sitter was already booked, so she hired All About Smoochies pet daycare after seeing an ad in the yellow pages. "They wanted a check left along with the key, and so I did that, and paid up front, which usually you pay at the end -- and do a deposit," Page said. "But I guess since I was a new client too, that's why we went ahead and did that." When Kathy came back and found the conditions her animals had been left in she called the pet sitter, demanding answers. The owner of All About Smoochies, Tameron Himelrick, explained that she'd gotten sick and her husband Ervin had to take over caring for Page's animals. Page says Ms. Himelrick agreed to give her a partial refund, but nearly a month later she is still waiting for her money and her house key. "She's not answering my calls now," Page said. "Falsely set up meeting times and places, she was supposed to come to the house one night, I was supposed to meet her at her doctors when she brought her little boy into town, nothing has worked out." All About Smoochies advertises itself as a Christian family business, with 25 years experience. But when we did a little digging we found out the owners, Tameron and Ervin Himelrick, both have lengthy criminal records. Tameron has recently been arrested for fraud and authorities have citied her husband for possession of stolen goods. Tameron Himelrick called back Wednesday morning to say she was en route to Page's house with a refund check and the house key. But Page said when she got the check Wednesday afternoon it was only for $55. She said at the very least she's happy to have her key back. If you're looking for a pet sitter for your pets animal experts recommend getting a reference first from your veterinarian.

HIMELRICKS, TAMERON AND ERVIN

ALL THE ABOVE IS TRUE. BUT YOU ALL NEED TO KNOW WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO TRY AND RUN A BUSINESS WITH NO MONEY NO D'L'S AND HAVE NO WAY TO GET THEM BECAUSE OF ALL THE STUFF 3 STATES HAS PUT AGAINST THEM IT WOULD COST $10.000 OR MORE TO GET THERE D'L'S SO THEY DO TRY AND THEY FEED THERE OWN CHILD AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEM BUT HAVE EVERYONE DRAGGING THEM INTO COURT. PROBATION PEOPLE,60 PLUS MISDEMANOR'S AND PROBATION VIOLATIONS AND FAILURE TO APPEARS THEY ACT LIKE THEY HAVE KILLED SOMEONE AND SOME MONTHS SHE THEY WOULD HAVE MORE THAN 15 COURT APPEARENCES IN BRUNSWICK COUNTY OVER CHECKS UNDER $30.00 DOLLARS AND WILMINGTON THAT THEY CAN'T EVEN GET THERE. THEN WHEN THEY ARRIVE THE OFFICERS IS THERE CHECKING OUT TO SEE HOW THEY GOT THERE ALL PARTIES INVOLVED D'L'S' SO THINK HOW THIS LIFE WOULD BE OVER 1500 DOLLARS WORTH OF BAD CHECKS THAT HAS NOW PILED TO OVER $6000 IN FEE'S SO BEFORE YOU JUDGE PLEASE WALK IN THERE SHOES. ALL YOU PEOPLE DO IS STICK YOUR NOSES INTO THERE BUSINESS AND PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS. THANKS HOEP YOUR ALL HAPPY INVOLVED.

Beat with the Past?

this is not your home site www3 new? you allowed defamarion of character on your site. your a louse news center. God needs to watch your station. It is an embarrasment to our whole family to see this trash posted knowing we are thankful to see our brother alive after surviving a call with death many years ago. If Tammy said she was sick. She was sick. Does your news channel inform the world about people past to kill them mentally spritually.Shame on you? It show the media is sinister and devlish and southern slave drivers to boot.

YOU PEOPLE DONT EVEN NO THESE PEOPLE

YA'LL MAKE ME SICK WITH YOUR JUDGMENTAL WAYS, GO TO CHURCH AND LEARN SOMETHING. EVERYTHING IS MADE OUT TO BE MUCH BIGGER THAN IT IS WHEN IT COMES TO NEWS. PEOPLE LOVE DIRTY LAUNDRY. I NO THESE PEOPLE YA'LL ARE TALKING ABOUT AND YA'LL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. GET ALL THE FACTS!!!!!!!!! LOVE THY NEIBOR. YA'LL ACT LIKE THEY ARE KILLERS. GET A GRIP!!

Alrighty then

You know them, Ken? And I surely hope your God-fearing butt will ask them to pay this woman back her money. Poor girl, all that mess to clean up!! Not to mention the poor dog who knew better than to make a mess in his mother's house. And as far as criminals, nawwww, they sound like petty ones at best. We all can't put gas on our car PLUS food on the table.... Have them give her like $10 a week or something.... and save their pet sitting business. We need that type of business in our area.... just not one with a jaded reputation. Have them pay her back as they can. Then have them advertise out the YingYang that they have a service MUCH needed in this town.

to Ken

Give these folks your key Ken. They have court dates in Brunswick County also for possession of stolen goods and other crimes. How stupid can you get to think they could be good people? How stupid can folks be to believe an ad? People can put anything they want on an ad and sit back and wait for someone gullible to call them. Check out who is working for you and for heavens sake check out those in your home or with your children or pets. I would also advise the victim to have her credit locked. If she had a computer at home or anything with credit card numbers or other identification you can bet your boots that these folks got into that information and are either using it or sold it to someone else to use. It's not just a matter of getting the key back. This probably isn't over yet. Again, let them in your house Ken. After doing time they will need a place to stay and another dum butt to scam.

"Ye shall know them by their fruits."

I heard that in church. You can look it up in Matthew, I believe. (That's one of the Gospels.) You may "NO" these two, but the rest of us are simply going by the fruit they produce. They don't have to be killers to be criminals, but a forging druggie who traffics in stolen goods and skips out on his own kids certainly is a criminal. Buy a clue: Criminals are *not* good people.

don't tell us

Hey KEN, don't tell us to go to church, tell your criminal friends they need to go. Also, the caps lock key should be over to the left side of your keyboard. Try to find it.

WOW! Someone needs to use a dictionary!

Wow again. Never met someone so uneducated that they substituted "No" for "Know". WHAT A TARD!

Recommend Pet Sitters

I, too, agree that the locks need to be changed as soon as possible. I was also wondering if anyone can recommend any good pet sitters in the Pender County area.

Ervin Himelrick

Ervin Himelrck is on Ross County, Ohio's 10 most wanted list.

ERVIN HIMELRICK

OHIO'S TOP 10 MOST WANTED. WOW, FOR CHILD SUPPORT, WHAT A BAD CRIMINAL. AND WHEN IT COMES TO TAMI, SHE DOESNT HAVE THE MONEY FOR GAS TO GO TO THIS WOMANS HOUSE TO STEAL ANYTHING. NOTHING ELSE NEEDS TO BE SAID, BECAUSE YA'LL ARE TOO SLOW MINDED. THESE ARE SOME VERY BAD CRIMINALS, LOL.

Would you want them in your

Would you want them in your house? And a person that cannot or will not pay their child support is scum.

WE are slow minded?

I'd say that anyone who defends OR UNDERESTIMATES these pieces of criminal trash is the one who is slow-minded. John Dillinger stole apples before he started robbing banks......Y'ALL.....

All About Smoochies

Ervin Himelrck is on Ross countys 10 most wanted list for: *Failure To Pay Child Support *Possession of drugs *Forgery *Passing bad checks *Receiving stolen property *Nonsupport of dependents Hope Wilm PD has called them. What a loser.

ervins sister

What in the world you people are doing. My brothers past record is 20 years old. twenty years ago. And to record he was hit by truck and and has many injuries preventing him from thinking of any thing bad. They have been in the Carolina without food and housing and no way to drive. I lived in South your racist, condeming and soul driving dead there. I hope my brother would bring his family home. love you sister ann

People like these criminals

People like these criminals give pet sitters a bad name. Not all are like that and most don't have criminal records. I would have my house re-keyed immediately and then sue her for the cost. Hopefully she had insurance to cover that.

Who cares if you got the key back?

You gave your key to a convicted criminal who had HOW long to make HOW many copies? One day soon, you'll come home to find everything gone. Have your locks re-keyed RIGHT NOW!

Very Quickly

The cost of replacing all locks is insignificant to the cost of replacing everything these people can take. Call a locksmith today!
