Cedar Posts hears of a new trend at CMPD where high profile calls are sent out via cell phone rather than radio, in an attempt to avoid alerting the news media over the radio. If CP understands correctly CMPD dispatchers have been told by Chief Monroe to use cell phones to notify certain high priority response teams.
Word is the gang known as the Latin Kings in Greensboro had a little beef with a rival Charlotte gang member, so they sent him a package. CMPD called in the bomb techs via cell phone who later detonated the bomb, last Thursday.
Nothing heard from CMPD or the local news media. But word on the street is the King's message was heard loud and clear.
