The Police Department arrested Leonard Jason Baker today, less than two hours after his information was sent out on Nixle.com. Baker was charged with four counts of felony conversion, which involves renting property from others and converting it to one’s own personal gain and two counts of misdemeanor conversion. He faces numerous other charges and is currently being processed in the Cumberland County Jail. His bond is currently set at $750,000.
Police Chief Tom Bergamine has taken an aggressive stance on repeat offenders and recently, the Fayetteville Police Department has experienced a rise in community policing efforts, including the FPD BLUELIGHT SPECIAL initiative and a very active presence on Nixle.com, a website that sends out suspect’s information to local citizens in seconds. Chief Bergamine thanks the media for its support of the FPD BLUELIGHT SPECIAL.
