SoVaNow.com / April 28, 2014
The South Boston Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding 19-year-old Dylan Goodson, who is wanted for armed robbery in connection with an April 23 home invasion on River Road in South Boston.

Goodson is one of three suspects in the robbery, along with a 15-year-old juvenile female and Daniel Wayne Short of Halifax. Short committed suicide when police attempted to arrest him at a Halifax residence Thursday afternoon, according to law enforcement authorities.

Short, 27, died a self-inflicted gunshot wound, heard by police shortly after they entered a house at the 3000 block of Mountain Road to make the arrest.

Goodson, the other adult-age suspect in the crime, is being sought on charges of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and petit larceny.

The victim of the April 23 robbery reported to police that he was held at gunpoint by a white male while another white male took a gaming console and controller that belonged to him.

At present, Goodson’s whereabouts are not known and police are asking the public's assistance in locating him. Anyone having any information regarding Goodson is asked to contact the South Boston Police Department at 434-575-7273, the Halifax County E911 Center at 434-476-3334 or Halifax County Crime Line at 434-476-8445.
