Why can to you get a warrant in Randolph county after 6 of clock As you have to go to Asheboro and still can to get one and they refuse to run a warrant and who should you see to report this thank you. Mrs. H. S. A. You can get a warrant in Randolph county after 6 . Or any other hour by contacting the magistrate on duty at the time. The magistrate has the right to decide whether or not a warrant should be issued on a charge and is the one to decide whether he feels the person seeking the warrant is serious or just mad. The Archdale Trinity area has it own magistrate mrs. George Harrison who is on duty most of the time. If mrs. Harrison refuses to Issue a warrant then it will not do a citizen any Good to go to Asheboro to get one of the other magistrates to go Over her head because they will not do so nor should they except under unusual situations. If mrs. Harrison is not available to write a warrant then the person will have to go to Asheboro where the magistrate works around the clock. The loud ones q. I know that citizens have been complaining about these cars and motorcycles with loud mufflers and i would like to know the number of arrests made for loud mufflers within just a week if any. These people Are not considerate of the sick in the neighbourhoods or the people that enjoy peace and quiet. You can see that the Lack of enforcement has brought about More and More of these loud mufflers and i believe it is now time to have action on this. Anon. A. The police department says in one week nov. 19 through the 26 there were eight Muffler arrests. Sound off there were two purse snatch legs last week one on sunday morning in the front of Calvary Baptist Church on East Green and one at the dowdy building which is on East Green. I have not seen either of these in the paper at All and i read an article some place that the boys that commit crimes like this in one City in Florida they make them get out and clean the trash and things around the streets and drive ins. I think if the City would take this under consideration a lot of this Petty crime would Stop and wish who has the authority Over that would think upon this thing for some kind of punishment for these boys and that do these things. I think we would have a cleaner City and less crime. Thank you. By Donald m. Rothberg associated press writer Washington a Lawrence m. Higby said today he got clearance from h. R.
