The third and final suspect still at large following an April 23 home invasion and robbery on River Road was taken in custody yesterday by officers with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Department and South Boston Police.

Dylan Taylor Goodson, 19, was arrested around 11 a.m. Wednesday at a mobile home on the 2000 block of Philpott Highway near Riverdale. He was taken into custody without incident, according to South Boston Police Investigator Randy Redd.

He has been charged with robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and petit larceny.

Goodson is one of three persons charged in connection with the home invasion/robbery on River Road in South Boston. Also implicated is a 15-year-old female juvenile who has been taken to the W. W. Moore Detention Facility in Danville. A third suspect, 27-year-old Daniel Wayne Short of Halifax, committed suicide when officers arrived to arrest him last week on the day after the robbery. Short died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after officers entered a home to arrest him, according to police.

The victim of the crime told authorities that the two men and a juvenile female stole a gaming console and controller from his River Road home.

Law enforcement officers had been searching diligently for Goodson, according to Redd, and had sought the public’s assistance in locating him.

Redd said Goodson is being held without bond in the Halifax Adult Detention Center where a preliminary hearing for him is expected to be scheduled within the next several days
