Injury Claim Leads To Arrest

A man has been arrested after Pitt county deputies say he called in to authorities claiming he was shot, but it turned out he had actually cut himself while breaking into an elementary school.

According to deputies they responded to a call of a man shot near
Belvoir Elementary around 12:55 a.m Sunday.

Deputies say when they got there they found 18-year-old German Trejo-Martin drunk. They say he had not been shot, but had cut himself while breaking into the elementary school.

Trejo-Martin has now been charged with filing a false report and breaking and entering.

He is now in the Pitt County detention center under a $5,000 dollar bond.

    The young man may need mental assistance, rather than jail. His false report may have been real to him.

    in response to Russ, why not talk about the american lady arrested for Disabled Elder theft, or the american man who stole the bus and charged with DWI..... why not make comments towards your own kind. I guess its ok for them to do stupid things and have not one opinion from you.....SMH!

    I don't care how many people say I'm racist, but illegals think they have their own set of rules. You are in America, talk English. You are in America, go by our rules. You are in America, you break those rules, you go suffer the same way Americans do.

    Our unsecure porous Southern border is affecting us all, even if NC is not a border state. We need a Commander-in-Chief in the White House, not a campaigner-in-chief who is traipsing across the country and not being a true leader.

    Check him for his residency. If he is illegally in the US, deport him. If not, punish him to the full extent of the law. Let us, the hard working, play by the rules of the game, no matter what race, religion etc ... take back our town so we all can enjoy living here.
