The Halifax Police Department has arrested four South Boston men and a juvenile in connection with an April 7 break-in at 2031 Cowford Road, Halifax.

Arrested were:

25-year-old Tavon Doss, who was charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny of over $200 of property, feloniously stealing firearms, feloniously stealing property over $200 and less than $1,000 in property destruction.

Derrick Waller, 44, who was charged with felony possession of a gun and receiving stolen firearms.

Montel Womack, 19, charged with receiving stolen firearms

James K. Gooden, 29, charged with felony possession of a gun and receiving stolen firearms.

During the break-in, a gun safe containing multiple shotguns, ammo and a pistol was taken along with a Sony Playstation 3.

The stolen weapons were later sold to various individuals, some after being pawned at local pawn shops, according to police.

Halifax Police Cpl. Stuart Comer was assigned to the case and worked with multiple law enforcement jurisdictions and the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office to break up the crime ring.

“What appeared to be a simple breaking and entering case evolved into a multi-faceted investigation leading to the indictments and arrests which took guns out of the hands of convicted felons operating within our community,” said Halifax Police Chief Kevin Lands.
