Providence raid connected to $90K diaper heist

No.112446 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A raid at a former Providence business Thursday morning turned out to be connected to the theft of $90,000 worth of diapers.

Eyewitness News cameras rolled as investigators brought out numerous boxes from a storefront on Smith Street and loaded them onto a truck.

According to Rhode Island State Police, the diapers were destined for the Amazon distribution center in Fall River.

Detectives recovered about 800 boxes of diapers on Thursday, according to Rhode Island State Police, while an additional 1,200 boxes have yet to be found.

Arrested were Aubrey Bettis and Damon Martin.

Bettis, 59, of Providence, and Martin, 41, of Coventry, were charged with larceny over $1,500 and conspiracy. Martin was also charged with receiving stolen goods.

Police said a warrant has been issued for a third suspect.

According to police, Bettis was hired by the owner of the delivery truck to drive the load of diapers from Pennsylvania to Fall River last Thursday. He instead allegedly sold them once he got to Rhode Island and told the truck’s owner he was not making the delivery and that the truck could be picked up in West Greenwich.

The owner contacted state police after locating the empty truck in a motel parking lot.

Upon learning that some of the diapers were being stored at a vacant storefront on Smith Street, detectives obtained a search warrant and conducted the raid at about 11:15 a.m. Thursday.

Police said each box contained about 100 diapers and sold for about $40.

There was a sign on the building for “Repair Zone RI” advertising phone repairs. When Eyewitness News called the phone number on the sign, it was disconnected.

The windows to the store were covered in newspapers.

McCain's historic speech

No.113045 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

“All of us must accept our share of the blame for this turn of events. We grew complacent. We made mistakes. At times we tried to do too much, and at others we failed to do enough. We lost touch with many of our people. We have been too slow to recognize and respond to their hardships. We need to face up to these realities, but this does not mean losing hope and retreating. That we must not do.

“I know there is profound concern across Europe and the world that America is laying down the mantle of global leadership. I can only speak for myself, but I do not believe that is the message you will hear from all of the American leaders who cared enough to travel here to Munich this weekend. That is not the message you heard today from Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis. That is not the message you will hear from Vice President Mike Pence. That is not the message you will hear from Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly. And that is certainly not the message you will hear tomorrow from our bipartisan congressional delegation.

Rule to keep severely mentally ill from buying guns gets nixed by House

No.108551 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
The US House voted 235-180 on Thursday in favor of striking down an Obama-era rule intended to keep guns out of the hands of the severely mentally ill.

>The rule would require the Social Security Administration to forward information about certain beneficiaries with mental health disorders to the FBI’s background check system. Beneficiaries affected would be those suffering with mental illnesses so severe that they require a representative to manage their finances for them.

>The rule, originally slated to go into effect in December, is estimated to affect 75,000 beneficiaries. Those impacted could appeal through the courts to purchase a firearm, but not before their names were sent to the FBI, The Hill reports.

>The National Rifle Association, gun advocates, and civil rights advocates, including the ACLU, argued that the rule would strip Second Amendment rights from beneficiaries without due process. Supporters, meanwhile, said the rule would help keep guns out of the hands of those with severe mental illnesses.

>"The House charged ahead with an extreme, hastily written, one-sided measure that would make the American people less safe," Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-Conn.) told The Hill. Rep. Esty represents Newtown, Connecticut, where a man with mental health issues tragically massacred 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

>However, The Guardian notes that the National Council on Disability, a nonpartisan government agency, wrote in a letter last year that: “There is, simply put, no nexus between the inability to manage money and the ability to safely and responsibly own, possess, or use a firearm.”

The news aggregator was introduced here in February 2016 and has now been running for about four months. I'd like to hear your opinions on what could be done to make the site even better. Anything from color changes to source requests.

I have been collecting daily snapshots so that one day SPIDR would feature a timeline archive of the most popular headlines... would that be a feature worth of further development?

KKK imperial wizard Frank Ancona is found dead

No.110808 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Frank Ancona, the imperial wizard of the Traditionalist Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was found dead Saturday near Belgrade, Mo.

The body of the 51-year-old Leadwood, Mo., resident was located near the Big River by a family fishing in the area, according to a statement issued Saturday night by Washington County Sheriff Zach Jacobsen.

Jacobsen said an autopsy is being conducted and a cause of death has not been released. He called the incident a “tragic and senseless act of violence.”

Jacobsen said authorities learned on Friday that Ancona had disappeared and that his car had been located by a U.S. Forest Service employee on Forest Service property near Potosi. He said deputies secured the area. On Saturday, Jacobsen said, he requested assistance from the Missouri Highway Patrol.

“During the investigation, one subject was arrested on an unrelated warrant and two search warrants were executed in Washington County,” Jacobsen said. “Subsequently, a body was discovered on the bank of the Big River near Belgrade, Mo., in southern Washington County ... The body was identified as Mr. Ancona, and his family has been notified.”

Ancona, who is not related to the Kansas City area auto dealer, had posted recruiting videos and cross burnings on YouTube and was profiled in The Star’s 2015 domestic terrorism series.

The group’s national headquarters is in Park Hills, Mo., about an hour’s drive southwest of St. Louis. Ancona shares a name with a car dealer in Olathe, but the two are not related or connected in any way.

In a series of interviews with The Star, Ancona described his Klan as a Christian organization and a fraternal order.

“The only things secret about the Klan are that our rituals and ceremonies are only for members to see,” he said. “That’s part of the mystique of being a member.”
