Dim-witted criminals catch extra charges

Dim-witted criminals catch extra charges

MARTIN COUNTY - A pair of ignorant dimwits just picked up extra charges after losing their tempers with Martin County Sheriff’s Office officials.

Since Felix Nosa Omoruyi was booked into the Martin County Jail on Nov. 5 following his infamous hunt, he has been a less than model inmate.

He has had a poor at titude and cannot get along with the other inmates so he was removed from general population and placed in his own cell.

“The other day he got upset because his request for more food was denied,” stated Martin County Chief Deputy Ernie Wakefield. “He then proceeded to do $5000 worth of damage to his cell. When the deputy and jailer entered his cell to move him to the punishment cell, he physically resisted which resulted in him getting tased and placed in the violent cell.”
