CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – More than a dozen people have been arrested in a North Carolina prostitution investigation involving use of the Web site Craigslist.

Multiple media outlets reported that most of the arrests occurred last week at motels along the Interstate 77 corridor in Charlotte. Police Capt. Mike Adams said most of the prostitutes
were from out of town, but didn’t say if customers also were arrested.

Adams says prostitution contributes to other crimes and the investigation is continuing.

LUMBERTON — A North Carolina middle school principal who was shot in the face as he drove to school in April is using the Internet to seek information about who attacked him.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Tuesday that Fairmont Middle School principal James Hunt hopes his new site will generate tips and lead to an arrest. Hunt was attacked April 9 by someone who drove beside his vehicle and fired a shotgun.

Hunt drove to a hospital and then spent several weeks in the Duke University Medical Center after reconstructive surgery for severe facial injuries. The former Marine and his family have been living in a Durham hotel under a fictitious name.

The Web site is http://whoshotprincipalhunt.com and began this month.
