Mecklenburg County deputies deal with spate of break-ins

SoVaNow.com / August 28, 2013


Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s office responded to a spate of break-ins around the area over the past week. They began on Aug. 21 when Sgt. Jerry Jarman was called to a home on Airport Road in Chase City. The victim reported an 18,000 BTU air conditioner was removed from the home sometime between Aug. 13 and 21. Jarman estimated the value of the unit at $300.

On Aug. 25, Deputy Tim Garner investigated a breaking and entering complaint, which took place on Green Acres Road in Chase City. According Garner, the victim claimed that sometime between the afternoon of Aug. 24 and the early morning hours of Aug. 25, a bottle of vodka, several 20-ounce bottles of Pepsi products, and a box of chocolate ice cream were removed from his home. Garner estimate the value of the products at $30.

That same day, Deputy Natasha Brown was dispatched to the 2000 block of Averett Church Road in Clarksville to investigate a breaking and entering. The victim told Brown, while nothing was stolen, the perpetrator suffered some type of laceration, and there was an extensive amount of blood inside the residence. Brown reported that it appeared as if the offender forced entry through a window on the residence.

Finally, on Aug. 26 Deputy Tywanna Evans was called to investigate a vandalism complaint at a home on Stumps Dead End Road near Chase City. The complainant, who is the caretaker, reported that between August 19 and the date of the complaint, the front door of the property was vandalized. Since the property was vacant, there were not items of value inside, Evans reported, but estimated the damage to replace the door at $300.

If you witnessed any of these crimes or have information please call the sheriff’s office at 434-738-6171, or you can remain anonymous and call the Mecklenburg County Crime Solvers at 1-888-624-2207.
