Clayton Police Department News

Clayton Police may be opting for a darker shade of blue! We're testing new uniforms for the next few months - with a handful of officers running several new types of uniforms through rigorous trials - are they functional, durable, do they wash well, are they breathable under our protective vests? We've had the same uniforms since the 90's - so we want to hear from our officers AND we also want YOUR feedback as well! At officers' requests, these first trial uniforms have cargo pockets, more chest pockets and American flags. They're also dark shirt and pants made out of a blended fabric - no more light gray polyester shirts and dark gray pants. We want to assure the public that even during this trial uniform test - ALL our officer uniforms WILL STILL display the blue and black Clayton Police patch, officers will still have their same Clayton badges pinned to the front AND their name tags. Several officers were sporting the new uniforms at our very first Coffee with a Cop at Clayton Bakery & Cafe - Great turnout and great feedback!

UPDATE! 42W near hospital and 70 bypass is STILL down to one lane in each direction and Duke Energy is still replacing the pole and has a “a few hours” of work left. They have been able to open one lane in each direction and have a traffic crew helping to direct traffic. Light traffic in the overnight hours moved well, but expect delays with rush hour starting! ******** Accident alert! NC42 west shut down near hospital and 70 bypass.

We hope you're having a safe Halloween and keeping an eye out for the kids! Join us in the morning for a free cup of coffee! 8 to a.m. at Clayton Bakery & Cafe Click the event to get a reminder! https://www.facebook.com/events/1237419166386985

Gearing up to go trick or treating tonight? Follow these safety tips to make sure everyone in your neighborhood has a happy Halloween! We don't set specific times or dates for trick-or-treating – But we'd love for families to make sure their children trick-or-treat at a reasonable hour and preferably are home by 8:30 p.m. There's no age limit either, but most people agree the cutoff comes at 12 years old. We'd also like to encourage parents to remember basic safety tips while taking children out to collect candy. Follow these simple safety guidelines and everyone will have a safe, fun and spooky Halloween: Walk in groups and always with a trusted adult Attach reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you Adults should examine all treats for hazards and tampering Take a flashlight Walk, do not run from house to house Make sure vision is not obstructed by masks Use crosswalks when available and look both ways before crossing a street Use sidewalks when available or walk on the edge of the road facing traffic Only visit well-lit homes (lights off usually means no candy) Never accept a ride from a stranger

We collected just over 100 POUNDS of pharmaceuticals Saturday at Operation Medicine Drop with help from Safe Kids Johnston County! Our haul included 65 pounds of pills, 18 pounds of medical patches and 17 pounds of EpiPens! Couldn’t make it on Saturday? NO WORRIES! The Clayton Police Department makes it easy for you to get rid of those drugs every day of the week – just drop by the Clayton Law Enforcement Center at 315 E. 2nd St. on Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. We have a free drug disposal box right in the lobby. No questions asked! No paper work to fill out! You can come by any time. Medications are the leading cause of child poisoning, with more than 67,000 children going to an emergency room for medicine poisoning each year, according to a March 2013 report from Safe Kids Worldwide. We all have old prescription bottles lining our medicine cabinets and rolling around our bathroom drawers. You might think it’s smart to hold on to them just in case, but those drugs could lead to addiction or poison someone – either because they fell into the hands of a child or grandchild or because they’re out of date. And while it’s tempting to flush those old pills, that can harm our water supply. The free program at the Clayton Police Department was started in July 2012 when the Clayton Rotary Clubs generously offered to pay for the collection box. The program caught on quickly in the first year, Clayton Police collected more than 140 pounds of medications. Our box takes everything except syringes and liquids. The box has 5-gallon bag and, on several occasions, we’ve emptied the bag on a Monday and found it overflowing again before the end of the week. Over the years, people have dropped off common over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen and Nyquil, as well as Ben-Gay cream, vitamins, suppositories and caffeine pills. The most frequently collected controlled substances include Alphamethadol, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Oxycodone, Ketamine, Testosterone, Alprozolam, Clonazepam, Prozac, Valium and Ritalin, among thousands of other pills.

Coffee with a Cop advances community policing by improving relationships between officers and community members – one cup of coffee at a time. The program started in 2011 with the Hawthorne, California police department, and it has since spread to departments in all 50 states, Canada, Europe, Australia and Africa. Today, Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Everyone is invited to attend. And did we mention there's free coffee?!

The Clayton Police Department is teaming up with Safe Kids Johnston County this Saturday, October 28th, for Operation Medicine Drop! It's part of a national Take Back initiative to get everyone to safely dispose of un-used, expired prescriptions and medicines so they don't end up in the wrong hands! OPERATION MEDICINE DROP Saturday, October 28, 2017 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Walgreens at 11306 Us 70 Business Hwy West on the corner of 70 and Robertson Street, Clayton, NC Sorry, no syringes or liquids will be accepted! But load us up with pills - we'll take them all! Unintentional poisoning deaths have increased by nearly 300% in North Carolina, going from 297 in 1999, to 1,104 in 2012 and 91% were drug or medication-related, according to the North Carolina Injury & Violence Prevention Branch fo the NC Department of Health and Human Services. Medications are the leading cause of child poisoning, with more than 67,000 children going to an emergency room for medicine poisoning each year, according to a March 2013 report from Safe Kids Worldwide. Operation Medicine Drop offers the public a free and convenient option for disposing of their prescription and over-the-counter medications to protect their families and the environment. More information is available at www.ncsafekids.org Can't make it to Operation Medicine Drop on Saturday - NO WORRIES! The Clayton Police Department makes it easy for you to get rid of those drugs every day of the week– just drop by the Clayton Law Enforcement Center at 315 East Second Street. We have a free drug disposal box right in the lobby. No questions asked! No paper work to fill out! You can come by any time 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. We ALL have old prescriptions lining our medicine cabinet or random pills in our bathroom drawers that we can’t quite remember the name of. You might think it’s smart to hold on to them JUST IN CASE, but those drugs you’re letting languish in your home could lead to addiction, be swallowed by a child or grandchild, make someone sick because they’re out of date, or even harm the water supply when you flush them down the drain. The free program at the Clayton Police Department was started on July 1, 2012 when the Clayton Rotary Clubs generously offered to pay for the collection box. The program was immediately popular and in the first year, Clayton Police collected more than 140 pounds of medications. There is a 5-gallon tote bag inside the drop box and on several occasions, the tote has been emptied on a Monday morning and was found overflowing again in less than four days. Although legally prescribed drugs serve a useful medical purpose, they can be deadly if they get into the wrong hands and are misused. Cleaning out medicine cabinets and safely disposing of old prescription and over-the-counter drugs can save lives. The Clayton Police Department continues to receive calls from residents outside of Clayton wishing to use our program and the Town welcomes that! The types of drugs that people have dropped off include common over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen and Nyquil as well as Ben-Gay cream, vitamins, suppositories, and caffeine pills. The most frequently surrendered controlled substances include Alphamethadol, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Oxycodone, Ketamine, Testosterone, Alprozolam, Clonazepam, Prozac, Valium, Ritalin, among thousands of other pills. The disposal box is intended to make the community safer, prevent potential misuse and to protect the environment. The only items that we can NOT accept are syringes and liquids.

CLAYTON POLICE WARN RESIDENTS ABOUT A RASH OF OVERNIGHT CAR BREAK-INS TO UNLOCKED CARS! 29 INCIDENTS REPORTED OVERNIGHT– DON’T BECOME A VICTIM. For the third time in less than a month, several Clayton neighborhoods have been targeted by thieves looking for some quick cash left in your car. Clayton Police took 29 reports of vehicles being broken into overnight on Saturday into Sunday, all of cars had been left unlocked. The reports of break-ins came from three different neighborhoods along Amelia Church Road – including the Amelia Village Apartments and the LionsGate and Garrison subdivisions. None of the vehicles were damaged and several high dollar items were passed over left behind, leaving police to believe the thieves were simply looking for cash. Many vehicles were left with the doors ajar, and consoles and glove boxes open with items scattered about. We live in a safe community, and the Town of Clayton repeatedly ranks among North Carolina’s safest places to live. However, we have seen an increase in crimes of opportunity, such as these, with thieves simply opening UNLOCKED car doors and stealing items left in plain sight. On September 27 & 28th, Clayton was hit two nights in a row by similar break-ins: 12 reports of break-ins to unlocked cars in the Arbors at East Village apartments, Amelia Station Apartments and Summerlyn neighborhoods. The following night saw 6 break-ins in the Riverwood Athletic Club community in unlocked cars. No suspects have been arrested. If you have any info about last night’s rash of car break-ins – or you saw anything suspicious in these areas – call Clayton Police at 919-553-4611. Don’t make it easy for thieves! Remember to ALWAYS to lock your car, even in your driveway. Do not leave valuables in your car, and hide them out of sight if you have no other option. If you witness a crime or see something suspicious, call 911 immediately! That gives Clayton Police the best chance to locate the criminals and make an arrest.

A Clayton pizza shop is making repairs this morning after a man crashed a van through the front of the business. 25-year-old Darlin Manuel Padilla-Sauceda of Clayton and a passenger were inside a white van when they drove through the front door of My Big Cheese Pizza in the Clayton Crossings shopping center at 1373 US-70 BUS in Clayton. It was just before 10 p.m. when the driver and passenger were just arriving at the business, attempting to park when the driver struck the building. They shattered glass, damaged tables inside and compromised the building structure. There were employees inside at the time of the crash, but luckily no one was hurt. The driver and passenger were not injured either. Padilla-Sauceda blew a .11 BAC and was booked into the Johnston County Jail charged with Driving While Impaired (DWI). He’s being held under $1000 secured bond.

CLAYTON POLICE OPERATION HAILSTORM In the biggest drug operation in department history, Clayton Police put 19 people behind bars today after a series of early morning raids. The coordinated sweep took down drug traffickers in our Town and rid our streets of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, $3-4,000 in drug money, and guns. Leading up to today’s raids, “Operation Hailstorm” required three months of undercover investigation and close coordination with the Johnston County Sherriffs Office and Selma Police Department and Smithfield Police Department and more than 30 officers in total. “The streets are going to be a lot quieter this weekend,” said Clayton Police Chief Blair Myhand, who said these suspects were responsible for pushing a huge amount of drugs. “These dealers have polluted this community and, frankly, have polluted many communities throughout Johnston County and the region. Hopefully, they got the message that dealing drugs in the Town of Clayton is not acceptable. I simply have zero tolerance for illegal drugs.” Clayton Police served warrants on 20 individuals without incident and transferred the suspects to Johnston County Detention Center. All have Clayton addresses. In total, the magistrates levied more than $2.6 million in secure bonds. Below is a list of the suspects and their charges. In total, “Operation Hailstorm” uncovered evidence implicating 27 suspects, and Clayton Police scratched more than half of those names off the wanted list today.

At 9:12 p.m. Thursday, Clayton Police responded to the Walmart at 805 Town Centre Blvd. after a woman stole $950 of electronics and, upon being asked for her receipt while leaving the store, sprayed an employee with mace. The woman used a shopping cart to steal six CD/DVD combination players, loaded them into a dark-colored four door sedan and fled the store. If you can identify this woman, or have any other information relating to this case, please call Lieutenant Russell Flint of the Clayton Police Department at 919-553-4611, Ext. 7411.
