Azaleas for garden tour arrive

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Even though the Azalea Festival is six months away, it’s time to start planting for it.

The Cape Fear Garden Club received more than 100 azaleas delivered from its sponsor, Encore Azalea. The company gives each garden owner ten plants free of charge.

Organizers like Sandra Kittinger were very excited as they waited for the flowers to arrive.

“It is like opening presents when the truck opens up. So we are going to sort what each garden owner and then they are going to come by and pick them up,” Kittinger said.

Organizers said they garden owners were able to pick out which colors they wanted for their gardens.

Surf City Chief: Suspicious device a Halloween prop, not bomb

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

SURF CITY, NC (WWAY) — Surf City Police Chief Mike Halstead said in a news release Wednesday that the suspicious device found inside a rental home was actually a Halloween prop, not a bomb.

Police said they were called to a home on October 14th on the 1800 block North Shore Drive when an employee with Century 21 found a suspicious device inside the home. The employee said the tenants had recently moved out and she was securing the home.

The bomb unit with Wilmington Police assisted in the detonation of the device. The device was described as three flares with a battery pack, secured by duct tape and connected by two wires. There was also two wine bottles found with a liquid inside. Officials suspected the liquid was an accelerant, but did not test it before detonation.

Chief Halstead said after further investigation by officers and the NCIS, the item was not an active explosive device but a prop for a Halloween party back in 2013. The company hired to move the previous owners found the item in a cabinet and placed it on the counter.

No charges will be filed, the chief said.
