Gang fight leads to child neglect case

Suffolk police found young children living in deplorable conditions while attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Tuesday. Officers were called to the downtown area on June 5 for a report of a fight. That investigation led officers to Kimberly Shanqua Shelton, 20, who police say assaulted another woman as a gang initiation. When officers went to Shelton’s home to arrest her, they saw a camper in the backyard and could hear children crying inside. Upon closer inspection, the door was found to be chained and padlocked from the outside. After forcing their way inside, officers found a 2-year-old girl and a 6-month-old boy alone in the camper. The windows were closed, and there was no running water or power. Police say the children’s diapers hadn’t been changed in some time and both were filthy and covered with bug bites. The young boy was also having some trouble breathing. They were both transported to Sentara Obici Hospital for treatment. The mother of the children, Jaronda Rena Wilson, 23, of Newport News, was not at the home when officers arrived and eventually returned. She reportedly had been out buying beer. Wilson and her brother-in-law, Laron Huston Neal, 22, of Suffolk, were arrested and charged with two counts of abuse and neglect of children, reckless disregard and two counts of cruelty and injuries to children. Shelton was arrested and charged with the assault and battery in connection to the June 5 incident. (Source)

Terrorism radiation plot uncovered in Albany

Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, an industrial mechanic with General Electric Co., who is also allegedly a member of the Ku Klux Klan, designed a deadly mobile radiation device that he intended to sell to Jewish groups or a southern branch of the Ku Klux Klan, according to a federal complaint unsealed Wednesday in Albany. The device was intended to be a truck-mounted radiation particle weapon that could be remotely controlled and capable of silently aiming a lethal beam of radioactivity at its human targets with the intent of victims dying from radiation sickness. Crawford is accused in a federal complaint of developing "a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford's enemies." Eric J. Feight, 54, is also identified as a co-conspirator and listed as Crawford’s acquaintance. Feight works for an electronics company in Colombia County and is accused in a federal complaint of agreeing to help Crawford construct the electronic controls for the device. (Source)
