Canton Man Arrested For Stalking Ex-Girlfriend
A local man is behind bars after reportedly stalking his ex girlfriend. Police say a woman identifying herself as the ex-girlfriend of 21 year old Brandon Williams went to the police department Wednesday morning to report he was following her. An officer apparently stopped a suspicious vehicle on Parkland Avenue SW where the driver, later confirmed to be Williams, gave the officer a fake name and date of birth before speeding away. Officials say they did not pursue the vehicle, which later they found out had been stolen from a local repair shop. The woman contacted the police again a short time later to report that Williams was following her again so police went to where he'd last been seen and he was arrested without a fight. He's now facing a number of charges including failure to comply and menacing by stalking and other charges.
BBB Warns of 'Giving Tuesday' Scammers
The Better Business Bureau says charities should be scrutinized before you give them money. Next Tuesday is considered "Giving Tuesday," a national push to urge people to donate to a charity this holiday season. But the Better Business Bureau say - scammers use your acts of kindness - as a crime of opportunity. Protect yourself this holiday season. Make sure the charity you donate to is accredited by the BBB. Check the charity's exact name - scammers will name their so-called charity with a similar name to a legitimate one. And make sure the charity provides examples of how that money will be used.
