Interview: Patrick Pardee
On 4-10-97, Patrick
Pardee agreed to ride with me and identify locations in Guilford
County wherein he was involved with Ted Kimble and Robert Nicholes
in theft of building materials.
Patrick showed me a
Shell Station under construction on Highway 68 and Regency Rd. At
the end of February or early March 1997, around 9pm, he and Ted
Kimble were in Ted's jeep. They drove to 4501 Regency Dr, High
Point. Ted hooked up a double axle trailer, white with black top.
Patrick advised the trailer may have had C&H Construction, Pageland,
SC painted on the side. He thinks it had a South Carolina tag on it.
Ted pulled off with the trailer, then remembered, they had left the
crank for the tounge back at the scene. Ted drove back to retreive
it. They drove to Lyles Building Supply on Lee St with the trailer.
Ted sanded and repainted the trailer there at Lyles's. It stayed on
the lot, up until about a week before Ted was arrested. Ted used his
box truck to tow this trailer to Level Cross and parked it at Gordon
Nelson's building at 11075 Randleman Rd. Level Cross. Patrick
advises, Ted used this trailer and the box truck to haul the stolen
go carts that came from Northern Hydraulics from Lyles to Level
Cross where Ted and Patrick tried to hide them.
We then drove to 7604
Keating Dr. Oak Ridge. Patrick said that early to mis February 1997,
around 11pm, He, Ted and Robert drove to this location in the box
truck and the tripple axle trailer. Robert drove his own pick-up
truck. Patrick and Robert went to a couple of construction houses
around the corner. Ted went into this house through the back door,
then came to Patrick and Roberts location. When they finished
loading materials from around the corner, they drove back to this
house, went inside and stole a dishwasher with a missing kick plate,
and a Redi heater. Both items were put in Roberts truck.

Bill Jones approached my car to advise that the same night the
cabinerts were stolen, he had $50.00 worth of dual wire stolen also.
The dual wire was lying outside in the front yard. he had not
reported it at the time. Address for this larceny is 8108 Keating
Ct, Oak Ridge.
We drove to Bitternut
Trail to Lot 41. Greensboro. This is a house under construction.
Patrick advised, he, Ted and Robert came here in the box truck
sometime the end of December 1996 or early January 1997, between 7
and 8pm. Patrick advises that took two bundles of boards (aprox 300
boards). These were either 2x4's or 2x6's or maybe a bundle of each.
These boards were in the yard next to the driveway. They took the
boards back to Lyles and unloaded them there.
We then drove to a
construction house on Burnt Leaf, Greensboro. Patrick, Ted and
Robert took the box truck and triple axle trailer, some time mid
February to this location and took "OSB" plywood, some 2x4's and
2x10's, and maybe some other lumber also. Some of this lumber was
stored in the Mateer trailer. The rest was sold off the Lyles lot.
We went to the
Fellowship Presbyterian Church on New Garden Rd. Patrick advised he
sat across from the church in the Moose Lodge drive in Teds jeep
listening to the police scanner, while Ted and Robert loaded the box
truck with thirty sheets of construction grade sheet rock that was
on the church property.

on Battleground Ave, Greensboro. Patrick advised he was driving the
jeep and a flat bed trailer, and Ted had the box truck with the
triple axle trailer. Ted had rented a fork lift from Tri-Lift on
Industrial Ave earlier in the week and had the frok lift on the

the other house they took two matching windows, two double doors,
