Officer Curry Roberts II Receives Law Enforcement Commendation Medal

Posted in: News

On January 18, 2021, RRPD Officer Curry Roberts II conducted a traffic stop for a vehicle speeding in the area of HWY 158 and Georgia Ave. in Roanoke Rapids. This stop led to the discovery of Trevon Fields’ lifeless body in the trunk of the vehicle. The pro-activeness of Officer Roberts helped the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office potentially solve a murder they would not have been aware of. Officer Roberts instincts and professionalism ultimately help capture four subjects that potentially had involvement in the death of Trevon Fields. This traffic stop also yielded four handguns that would have remained on the streets illegally.  The presentation was made by Halifax Resolves Chapter Past President Ken Wilson.
