Sheriff’s deputies stay busy with theft reports in county

SoVaNow.com / October 03, 2012
Mecklenburg County Sheriff Bobby Hawkins said his office has once again been besieged with several area thefts, all occurring on Friday, Sept. 28.

The first incident involved the theft of a purse from a vehicle in the parking lot of the Uppy’s gas station and convenience store in Bracey. Deputy Scott Edmonds said the victim claimed she’d left the pocketbook inside her car, which was parked on the west side of the building. Edmonds gave no further information about the crime, except to say it remains under investigation.

A silver “New Idea two-row Corn Picker” was taken from a home at 188 Wilson Newton Road while the owner of the property was in the hospital. Corporal Andy Ramsey reported that the machine was last seen on the victim’s property on Sunday, September 23.

Finally, Sergeant Jerry Jarman received a complaint about political signs being taken from the 6900 block of Wrightman Road in Chase City. The victim told Jarman this was the second time signs were taken from his property. The first such incident occurred on September 16.

Hawkins asks anyone with information about these or any crimes to call Crime Solvers at 434-738-6171.
