River Ridge burglary probed

SoVaNow.com / August 22, 2012
Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Deputies once again were called to the River Ridge subdivision to investigate a burglary. This is the third such incident in two months.

On Aug. 16, Sgt. Marlon Alexander went to 236 Big Horn Trail to investigate a complaint of a forced entry into a RV Trailer on the property. It appeared that the entry was made by breaking a glass window on the RV. According to the victim, Linda Oliver, her family was last in the property on Aug. 11. At that time, there was no damage to any of the structures. Oliver estimated the cost of replacing the window at $100.

John C. Russell returned to his property at 2325 Hayes Mill Road, after a trip to Florida to discover the theft of two vehicles: a 1995 green Honda four-door with tan interior and a 1983 burgundy and chrome laden Gold Wing 1200 Interstate (Shriner’s) motorcycle. Russell last saw the vehicles in April. He estimated the value of the loss at $6,500.

Sheriff Bobby Hawkins again reminds residents to watch out for their neighbors and especially in areas with vacation homes. “If you live or travel in a subdivision with a large number of vacation properties, pay close attention to your surroundings and report anything suspicious.”

Paul Hutcherson, 42, of 639 Tolbert Road in La Crosse was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance after he was stopped for a traffic violation on Morristown Circle. Deputy Tim Garner said he was speaking with Hutcherson after pulling him over when he saw Hutcherson attempt to conceal something in his pants pocket. When Garner asked to see the item, Hutcherson produced a pack of cigarettes with a plastic baggie stuffed inside, containing a white substance, Garner reported.

Hutcherson is currently being held at Meherrin River Regional Jail under a $3,500 bond.

On Aug. 18, Garner investigated a reported larceny at Buggs Island Archery, 11857 Highway Fifteen. According to owner Noel Corpus, one or more persons stole an archery target from his property sometime between August 17 and August 18. Corpus believes more than one person had to be involved because of the size and dimensions of the target.
