• Her alleged providing of a false name led to a Mount Airy woman being jailed Tuesday night under a $10,000 secured bond, according to city police department reports. Dora Jane Wilson, 54, of 1053 N. Main St., was encountered at that location by officers during a civil disturbance investigation.
During the incident, Wilson identified herself as Deedra Galyean, police said. Based on arrest records that list the name of the nearest relative for someone charged with a crime, Galyean is Wilson’s sister. The investigation revealed the real identity of Wilson, who was the subject of a show-cause order issued on April 27, a document that generally requires someone to justify, explain or prove something to the court. She was charged Tuesday with resisting, obstructing or delaying a public officer and was scheduled to appear in Surry District Court Thursday.
