October on Ocracoke was one without any major crimes or catastrophes, said Hyde County Sheriff Corporal Blackburn Warner.
Apart from a few DUIs and golf cart violations, deputy sheriffs from Sept. 16 to Oct. 15 responded to two vehicle crashes and an unattended death.
A larceny — wood stolen from a job site — that is under investigation. There was a charge of an assault on a female and a report of damage to property when someone broke the glass of a vending machine at the ferry building.
Warner said he’d heard that Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree Oct. 29 and 30 went off without a hitch. The decision to not sell alcohol and make it a family-friendly event succeeded with many children in having lots of fun.
The many visiting “pirates” that attended (well, the wannabe ones with their historic costumes, brimmed hats and eye patches) were on their best behavior.
The Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Company for the same period reported five medical responders, three medevacs, one water rescue call and three fire calls.
