Car stolen, school vandalized in Halifax / May 10, 2010
Halifax Town police are investigating a vandalism incident at the former Halifax Elementary School and the theft of a car and car stereo near the Blue Ridge Regional Jail.

Halifax Officer W. G. Yancey and Halifax Sheriff’s Deputy Gray Nunn responded to the former Halifax Elementary School building at 722 Mountain Road on Thursday, May 6 at 8:42 p.m. to check out a report of vandalism.

According to Officer Yancey’s report, two mobile unit doors were found open, with one of the door jambs damaged. Also, three window panes were broken on the east side of the building and a pane was broken out of the building’s front door. Officer Yancey estimated total damages at $100.

Also on May 8, at 1:14 p.m. Halifax Police Lt. D. D. Irby responded to Edmunds Boulevard, just east of Blue Ridge Lane, to investigate a report of a stolen vehicle. Kevin Ross, age 32, of Java reported that his silver 1993 Plymouth Acclaim was stolen while he was at the magistrate’s office. Minutes later at 2:11 p.m. the vehicle was recovered on Cemetery Street in Halifax, but the car stereo, valued at $65, brand name unknown, was missing.

Anyone having any information regarding these two incidents is asked to call the Halifax Police Department at 476-2526 or the Halifax County Crime Line at 476-8445. If your tip results in an arrest and conviction, you will be eligible to receive a cash reward.
