Kinston Arrests

Kinston Police

Over the last week, the new Kinston Police Chief has made a half-dozen arrests.

Chief Nicholas Finer has targeted bogus check writers, as well as burglars.

Six people in Kinston were arrested and charged with passing forged instruments.

The amount of the bad checks was more than $10,000.

The chief credits the assistance of the Coffee County Sheriff's Department with making the arrests.
