Wilmington man pleads guilty to scam at WV casino

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

MARTINSBURG, WV (AP) — Two men from North Carolina and New York have pleaded guilty to using counterfeit credit cards to obtain thousands of dollars in cash advances at a West Virginia casino.

Carlo Gause, 38 of Wilmington, and Dwayne Fleming, 38, of Brooklyn, NY, each pleaded guilty Wednesday to use of a counterfeit access device before a federal magistrate in Martinsburg.

US Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld said Thursday that Gause agreed as part of a plea deal to pay $155,300 in restitution to Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. Fleming agreed to pay $34,000 in restitution.

The incidents occurred in 2010.

Each defendant faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. They remain in custody pending sentencing.

Tracked Great White visits Southport, Bald Head Island

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Great White shark you can track online has made it north to the coast of Brunswick County.

Mary Lee’s satellite tracking device pinged at 9:10 a.m. at the mouth of the Cape Fear River near Southport. By 12:42 p.m., she was off the east side of Bald Head Island.

Mary Lee is a 16-foot, two-ton Great White shark. She was first satellite tagged by scientists in Cape Cod in September. In just three months, she has made it all the way down the eastern seaboard and is making her way back north.

An expert at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher says it’s not uncommon for Great Whites to be in our coastal waters. He said the presence of one may represent many more in the area.
