Walmart Kidnapping

A man is under arrest today for kidnapping a person half his age, to get a ride to his car, and to steal money.

Rocky Mount Police say 34 year-old Jock Hargrove went up to the 17 year-old in the Walmart parking lot on Benvenue Road Tuesday, and demanded the teen give him his money, police say, which was $11. Hargrove got out of the car on Wave Lane, and drove off. The teen called police. The suspect was picked up four hours later.

    I agree with "armpit". This used to be a nice town, but now crime is running rampant, and the "police" are either scared to death of the gangbangers, or stealing drugs from the evidence lockers, probably to cope with their lack of sense of duty!

    RM is the armpit of the universe. RM is well on its way to taking over Durham's title of crime capital of NC.

    I am glad the criminal in this case was caught and arrested. It makes me sick that someone thinks its, apparently ok, to rob hard working individuals of their money. I can see him now saying, "gimme yo money! I say gimme yo money or I get ye!"

    It is a known fact that the thugs hang out at Walmart. Worst place to shop if you are elderly, female or let your guard down.
