SouthWest Edgecombe High School Really? Teacher Arrested For Possession of Meth, Drug Paraphernalia & Obtaining Property By False Pretense

Someone sent this to my inbox and I think I seen it on Fighting Crime but I can’t find it now. It is obvious that some LEA members report to this page information before it hits otherwise so why nothing about this. Interesting!

But then again it may have been on Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens too I can’t see their page.

So where is the conversation about this?

I was told that the teacher is suspended. Really?

I heard the teacher was back at the school with her child the following day so why was the teacher allowed on campus?

This is something serious here. Where is the outrage? Oh because this is not a Black, Brown or Hispanic.



Pinetops – Janitor Charged With A Weapon On School Ground


Sheriff Cleveland “Clee” Atkinson Jr.


imageOn 03/18/19, Corporal R. Dozier II was working as the School Resource Officer at Southwest Edgecombe High School. School staff brought to Corporal Dozier’s attention that Jerome Faison Jr, a custodian at the school, had made threats to other staff and possibly had a gun. Corporal Dozier was able to get consent and to search Faison’s vehicle where he located a loaded handgun.

Faison was charged with Weapon on Educational Property and Carry Concealed Weapon. He was transported to the magistrate’s office where he was given a $5,000 unsecured bond and released.

Sheriff Atkinson applauds school staff and Corporal Dozier for taking quick action and resolving this incident safely.

Note: Don’t get it twisted the Sheriff Office has a job to do and they did their part. It is the school system job to inform the parents about situations that take place at school where their children are during the day.
