Roanoke police and federal agents raided George's Place yesterday and arrested three men. George B. Spence appeared in court this morning, followed by Keith Childress. They're charged in a ten- count indictment along with Henry Junior Gunter and two other men who're still at large. They're accused of conspiring to distribute crack cocaine, and are being held without bond, so far. Gunter told the judge he didn't understand why he was being held in jail for a crime he didn't commit. The government intends to seize at least one million dollars in cash from Spence, in addition to vehicles and the business on Williamson Road.

(( It was too good a deal to pass up.
When the Lynchburg fire department needed to buy new portable radios last fall, the name of Allan Johnson came up.

Johnson was an employee of radio manufacturer Ericsson SCI, and was well-known in the fire and rescue community.


[SOT 2:38:58//2:41:31]

((BUDDY MARTINETTE/LYNCHBURG FIRE CHIEF: SO WE INQUIRED WITH HIM AS WE DID THE OTHER RADIO MANUFACTURERS, AS A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS MAN AND HE PRESENTED A PROPOSAL TO US ON AN INVOICE AND WE ACCEPTED THAT PROPOSAL.//IT WAS A GOOD ENOUGH DEAL THAT WHEN WE BOUGHT THREE, WE ASKED DID HE HAVE ANY MORE FOR SALE.))
[RUNS= 14]
[OUT Q=more for sale.]


They eventually bought seven radios.. which normally sell for (more than a thousand dollars each).. at about half price.
The question is: did Allan Johnson have the right to sell that equipment?
Police became aware of Johnson after they arrested 32- year- old Gregory Scott Simms last month for allegedly stealing two radios from Ericsson.
Court records show Simms told police he was taking stolen radios to Johnson for re-programming.. a search of Allan Johnson's home turned up radios and parts, programming manuals and software, several computers and more than 150 floppy disks.
Tracking down all this equipment has taken time, because the Ericsson Corporation has undergone so many mergers.

[SOT 1:13:27]

((LT. WAYNE DUFF/LYNCHBURG POLICE: ERICSSON, SCI, MA/COM.. THEY'RE ALL BEING VERY COOPERATIVE, BUT IT JUST TAKES SOME TIME OBVIOUSLY, WITH THE SIZE OF THEIR COMPANY, TO TRACK ALL OF THESE RECORDS AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING THROUGH NOW, SO UNTIL THAT'S DONE, WE'RE NOT GOING TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE HAVE.))
