Repo man?

A man came to a home Wednesday and told the resident that he had to repossess his 1999 Chevrolet Blazer, a Wayne County sheriff's report said.

The report said the resident, Linwood Allen Maready of Long Henry Grady Road, Seven Springs, told the man that he owed nothing on the truck.

Maready then told deputies that the "repo man" identified himself as working with a company in Seven Springs.

The man then took the Blazer, valued at $14,000, and fled. Maready said he called the company the man named and was told they knew nothing about the vehicle or the "repo man."

Drive-by shooting

A van and a home were damaged Thursday night in a drive-by shooting in the 200 block of Freeman Street, Goldsboro police said.
