Police Bring Robbery Suspect Back to Waynesboro

Brandon Jarrod Walker, 24, was caught in North Carolina last week after police responded to a domestic disturbance involving the suspect and his mother. Police discovered a warrant from Waynesboro Circuit Court for his failure to appear for trial.

Waynesboro officers traveled to North Carolina Friday night and brought Walker back to the city Saturday morning, according to the release from WPD. It’s not clear if Walker is being held in Waynesboro or at another facility.

Walker is accused in the June 9, 2015, robbery at gunpoint of two men at a room at the Royal Inn at 2112 West Main St., Waynesboro, the release says.

Both Walker and Michael David Keys Jr. were arrested in the case. Walker was charged with breaking and entering, two charges of armed robbery and two charges of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Keys faced a robbery charge and two lesser charges.

The cases against both men were presented to a grand jury and both were scheduled for trial. Walker’s was set for this past December but he failed to appear. He had been on the “Waynesboro Wanted 10” list since that time, the release says.

Keys pleaded guilty to the two lesser charges against him and was sentenced in March of this year to 5 years in prison, with all but six months suspended.

It’s not known if Walker will face fugitive or any other charges related to his disappearance in December or if he was charged in North Carolina in connection with the domestic disturbance police responded to last week.

Guns and Hoses Charity Event in Augusta

AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va (WVIR) –

In Augusta County, deputies and firefighters are gearing up to shot some hoops for charity.

The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office has challenged the Augusta County Fire Department to a game of basketball in the first annual Guns and Hoses event.

Event organizer Deputy Janell Hammersberg says the two departments already give each other a hard time, so they decided to take it to the courts and raise money for a couple of organizations.

“Augusta County Sheriff’s Office has chosen the Valley Children’s Advocacy Center because they do so much work for us and they need all the money they can get to keep interviewing our children that are victims of sexual abuse,” said Hammersberg. “The firefighters have chosen Camp Light to get them up and running.”

Guns and Hoses is scheduled for Saturday, July 30, at the Stuart’s Draft High School at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $5 for ages 10 and up.

Officers responded to the 13400 block of Princedale Drive in Dale City around 1:50 p.m. July 26 to investigate reports of a shooting, Prince William police spokesman Nathan Probus said in a news release.

Police arrived and located four victims, a 14-year-old Woodbridge boy, a 21-year-old Woodbridge man, a 22-year-old Woodbridge man and a 23-year-old Florida woman.

Police learned that the victims had arranged to sell drugs to three other people in that area, police said in the news release.

“During the encounter, one of the subjects brandished a handgun and demanded the narcotics,” Probus said in the news release.

When the suspects refused to give him the narcotics, the suspect took a cell phone from one of the victims, police said.

The shots struck the vehicle and a nearby house in the 5200 block of Miles Court. The house was occupied, but no injuries were reported, police said. One of the victims in the vehicle had minor injuries from debris, police said.

The suspect then fled the scene in a vehicle.

Police investigated and identified the suspect as a 16-year-old Woodbridge boy.

Detectives located the teen later that evening and he attempted to flee, but was quickly taken into custody and a firearm was recovered, police said.

The teen was also wanted in connection with a robbery in the 4000 block of Prince William Parkway on Feb. 19.

In that incident, an 18-year-old man told police that he was walking when two men approached him, stole his cell phone and money and ran away.

The 16-year-old suspect was charged with robbery for the Feb. 19 incident, and with robbery, shooting into an occupied vehicle, two counts of use of a firearm in commission of a felony, one count of possession of a stolen firearm and one count of resisting arrest for the July 26 incident.

Stafford: Uber Driver Atttacked by Teen

Stafford County, Va-

On his third day as an Uber driver, a 65-year-old man was beaten and choked by his teen fare in the England Run neighborhood at 7:30 p.m. July 20, Stafford County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman M.C. Morris Moncure said.

The driver suffered injuries to his neck and lower left leg that required medical care.

Uber told the driver that his client was to be taken from Lyons Boulevard to a McDonalds on Warrenton Road.

Once inside the vehicle, Morris Moncure said, the passenger redirected the driver from the original destination, purportedly to get something from his residence. When they arrived at a secluded cul-de-sac on June Court, the teen began hitting the driver in the head with a solar light fixture. During the attack, Morris Moncure said, the car kept slowly moving, striking several mailboxes along the street.

Detectives from the sheriff’s office and Uber identified a 16 year old suspect and Detective B. L. Surles obtained juvenile petitions on July 21. Later that day the teen was apprehended on Shasta Place in England Run. He was charged with malicious wounding, strangulation, abduction and attempted robbery.

He is being held at the Juvenile Detention Facility.
