NCPD officers honored for arresting murder suspect

Please join NCPD in congratulating our Employees of the Month for January, 2023, who arrested a murder suspect. On January 9, Ptl. Asha Goodnight and Ptl. Peter Beck responded to a motel to try to find a crime scene for a stabbing incident. Officer Goodnight located an area in the parking lot, indicating that someone attempted to clean the scene. Officer Beck followed a water trail to a room at the motel where they found several individuals. One of them was armed with a pistol. A records check showed the man was wanted by our agency for murder, armed robbery and a gun charge. Ptl. Goodnight’s and Ptl. Beck’s investigations techniques resulted in the murder suspect’s arrest. Great job!
