Miller under fire after lying on candidate about “ongoing investigation”, lose voters

Published

Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller is under fire after top law enforcement officials proved that he lied about an “ongoing investigation” against Sheriff candidate Boyd Brown involving a 2004 “Tractor Theft Ring”. The case has been closed for 14-years according to now-retired NC DMV Theft Bureau Special Agent Andy Heath, who was the agent in charge at the time of the investigation.

NOE: The black are areas to protect the names of other individuals this anonymous person communicating with.

In December 2003, Preston Brown sold a piece of farm equipment to a man who quickly discovered that he had unknowingly purchased stolen goods. The Kinston Police Department was contacted who then notified the NCDMV Enforcement Divison.

Ed Brown, the Onslow County Sheriff at the time, reached out to Agent Andy Heath and gave him the information that his office had regarding the crime. At this point they had learned about the stolen tractors, and that it might go beyond the Onslow County jurisdiction. Both Sheriff Brown and Boyd Brown, who is currently in the running to become Onslow County’s new Sheriff and is the cousin of Preston Brown, assisted the DMV with information and Boyd Brown closely assisted Agent Heath at different locations looking for the stolen goods.

Preston Brown was arrested and convicted in the case. According to Agent Heath, Preston admitted that he was to blame for the stolen equipment. Boyd and his brother Floyd Brown also purchased equipment from Preston but they were unaware that the equipment was stolen. At the time of purchase, there was no reason for them to think that the equipment was stolen as no reports had been made.

According to Heath, Boyd Brown’s only connection to the case was that his cousin was the perpetrator of the crime, he was himself a victim of his cousins, he helped the investigators locate the stolen equipment. There was not once a time that he was suspected to be involved and in Agent Heath’s words Boyd was “never involved in the investigation as a suspect.”

The (Case Status) is listed as: (Closed/Cleared)

Sheriff Hans Miller insisted that the case was still open and that he could not comment on an “ongoing investigation.”  (LISTEN BELOW)

Agent Heath said that the case has been closed since December of 2004 and that there is not now, nor has there been, an “ongoing investigation” as Sherrif Miller has claimed. District Attorney Earnie Lee also stated that there was NO “ongoing investigation” involving that specific case.

D.A. Lee said that his office is not involved in the prosecution of any matter involving Boyd Brown nor has Sheriff Hans Miller asked his office to advise them. Officials say that Sheriff Hans Miller CANNOT re-open another agency’s case.

In a Facebook post by Sheriff Hans Miller, he stated that he should have said “look into it” instead of “investigate it” in regard to the Tractor Theft Ring. Miller is now trying to play the victim and acting as if the public jumped to conclusions after he PUBLICLY stated that there was an “ongoing investigation.”

“Hans pulling out the dirty cards by doing this he lost my vote,”Derrek Smith, of Jacksonville said in a Facebook post.

MASSGT Timothy Aswan, a United States Marine, says that he will not be voting for Sheriff Hans Miller on May 8 because Miller was untruthful about an investigation against Brown.

“Four years ago, I supported Miller and I didn’t think nearly 4-years later that he would lose my vote. My family and I just can’t support a man who will not be truthful,”Aswan said.

Jacob Holmes, of Sneads Ferry, said that a sheriff Miller refuses to do something about those who are trafficking and selling drugs in Sneads Ferry.

“I have tried to set up a meeting with the sheriff and he canceled our meeting, I have tried to go to the sheriff’s office with my concerns and have been turned away, I have called and made complains and haven’t heard anything back. I just don’t think he will ever be able to help us in Sneads Ferry, he’s lost my vote,”Holmes said.

Sadly, you can expect the “honorable” Sheriff to continue his rhetoric and not apologize to Boyd Brown or “We The People”, the citizens of Onslow County who he is sworn to serve and protect, because of his ego.

May 8th is election day for citizens of Onslow County and it is an important one. Please make time to go out to the polls and vote! Vote for a sheriff who is going to keep his word and keep the good people of Onslow County Safe, get justice for those who have been victimized by the current administration and do their best to treat EVERYONE with dignity and respect!

    Well, if anyone vote for Sheriff Miller they are sick. I watched a video on here when Gerald did a video with Suzzane and let me tell you, that was sad. I can’t believe they called that lady a liar. All politicians lie though.

VIDEO: Black Rose Tavern accused of kicking out Black man for charging phone

Published

on

A Jacksonville man says he was kicked out of a Midway Park bar Tuesday after he was trying to charge his phone. 

Jacksonville resident Kenneth Foster lost power at his home because of Hurricane Florence and needed to charge his phone, but when he went to Black Rose Tavern in Midway Park to charge it, he was kicked out.

“I left Hungry Howies to go to Black Rose Tavern to get a drink and I needed to charge my phone,” Foster said. “I saw children charging their phones.”

Foster said that when he asked the owner of Black Rose Tavern, John Bova, if he could charge his phone he was met with the reply that “this ain’t that type of bar”.

Bova, however, is claiming that Foster walked in the door, and, without asking, plugged in his phone.

“He walked in the door and plugged in his phone, and my wife who was the bartender walked over and asked him if she could help him and asked if he needed something to drink. He told her that he needed to charge his phone.”

Bova told News In Onslow that Foster began getting hostile with his wife, which is when he stepped in, told Foster that he could not charge his phone and informed him that he needed to leave.

Bova explained to Foster that they are a private club and that he cannot just walk into their place business and plug in his phone.

It was after being told to leave that Foster pulled out his phone and started recording.

Foster said Bova grabbed his phone and bruised his finger but he will not be pursuing criminal charges.

“I know the man racist,” Foster told News In Onslow.

The bar owner said that he is not racist and that his business is diverse.
