Former metro-east title service firm owner accused of theft

Thursday, 05 September 2013 03:38 Published in Local News

   BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The owner of a former license-and-title service in the metro-east is accused of duping more than $30,000 from clients.

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports St. Clair County prosecutors charged 52 year old Brian Rainbolt on Tuesday with felony theft and a misdemeanor count of not having a state license as a remittance agent.

   Rainbolt's business, Duffy's License and Title Service in Belleville, has been closed since police descended upon it in May while investigating complaints involving vehicle titles and registrations.

   Rainbolt allegedly pocketed payments for titles, registrations or other state fees instead of turning the money over to the state to complete the legal transaction.

   Online court records don't show whether Rainbolt has an attorney. He does not have a listed home telephone number.

 

China warns of economic risk of Syria intervention

Thursday, 05 September 2013 03:14 Published in National News

   ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — China is warning other world powers of global economic risks of a potential U.S.-led military intervention in Syria'a civil war.

   Chinese Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao says such "military action would definitely have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on the oil price."

   He spoke in St. Petersburg on Thursday ahead of a summit of leaders of the Group of 20 leading world economies.

   He cited estimates that a $10 rise in oil prices could push down global growth by 0.25 percent.

   He urged a negotiated U.N. solution to the standoff over allegations that Syria's government used chemical weapons against its own people, expressing hope that "the world economic balance will become more stable rather than more complex and more challenging."
