Charlotte fire among N.C. responders saving lives in S.C.

Members of the North Carolina Helo Aquatic Rescue Team remain in the Midlands helping in the days following the historic floods.

Several of the members, based as McEntire Joint Air National Guard base in Eastover, are from the Charlotte Fire Department. The highly specialized team is trained to perform a wide range of rescues.

"We know we're a big city, we know we have a lot of resources," said Tim Rogers, part of the N.C. H.A.R.T. and a battalion chief for CFD. "We want to help everyone we can."

The teams have run two to three missions a day. Primarily running rescues initially and later recovery. Lately, the teams have been tasked with "search and recon" missions.

During a rescue Tuesday, N.C. H.A.R.T. was on scene where a man had tried to rescue his family in a boat.

"It finally got too bad and it was too late and they got themselves in a real bad situation upstream of a road that had washed out," Rogers said.

When Channel 9 met up with the N.C. H.A.R.T. Thursday, they were headed out on another mission. Local heroes proud to take flight to help those just to our south.

"It's and honor and a privilege to be here on behalf of North Carolina," Rogers said.

Crews will likely remain on scene as long as they are needed, according to a representative with the South Carolina National Guard.

Police ID man accused of using fake bomb in attempted robbery

Police have identified a man accused of using a fake bomb last month to try to rob a BB&T bank in Dallas.

Frederick Mahoney of Concord passed the fake bomb to a clerk at the drive-thru, police said.

The attempted robbery shut down a community around the BB&T bank three weeks ago.

Police evacuated Rita Jenkins from her home next door to the bank.

"I thought, 'Oh, Lord. Just keep us safe,'" Jenkins said.

She was relieved when she was told that police have identified a suspect.

"He needs to straighten up, get right," Jenkins said. 

The fake bomb was designed to ensure a successful robbery, but it backfired on the robber, police said.

The teller did not comply with the holdup note or react to the robber's gun, according to authorities.
"There is something with wires in the tube,” a caller told dispatchers. “There is a device in the tube. There is something with wires in the tube. There is a device in the tube."
Police sent remote-controlled robots into the bank.

The cameras on the robots led to the first clues, and police got more from the fragments of the detonated device.
"From that clue with information led us to more information to build a stronger case," Dallas Police Detective Mike Lynch said.

Police will not reveal the clues or information they uncovered but said it was enough to obtain warrants, and they are now searching for Mahoney.

Mahoney currently faces only state charges in the bank robbery, but police said the FBI is involved in the investigation and there is a chance that he could face federal charges.
