Suspect in larceny, B&E turns self in
SoVaNow.com / June 27, 2013Christopher Wilson Strange, who has been charged with breaking and entering, larceny and vandalism, turned himself in to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday afternoon shortly before 2:30 p.m.
Strange, who allegedly stole a 2013 Ford Lariat pick-up truck last Thursday from a Rodgers Chapel Road home, had been the target of a search since the stolen truck was recovered in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Monday, June 24.
At that time, officers from both the Halifax County Sheriff’s Department and the Myrtle Beach Police Department were searching for him.
According to Sheriff Fred Clark, last Thursday morning deputies went to arrest Strange on two earlier counts of breaking and entering and two counts of vandalism when he fled into a wooded area. Later that night, he is believed to have broken into the home on Rodgers Chapel Road, taking a gun and an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing in the truck.
Myrtle Beach officers found the gun in the recovered truck, which had sustained no damage.
Clark said he did not know when Strange returned to Halifax County.
Clark praised the efforts of Investigator M.A. Womack and Deputy Tracey Mocarsky in securing Strange’s arrest and thanked citizens for their help in locating the suspect. He said last night that additional charges are pending against Strange.
