A 19-year-old South Boston man has been charged with breaking and entering, petit larceny of cigarettes and misdemeanor property damage after the South Boston Police Department responded to a call for suspicious activity and noises in the area of Edmunds Street and Terry Avenue just before 9 p.m. Friday.
Deonta Jarodd Buster of Wickham Street also faces charges on the same three offenses stemming from a previous breaking and entering incident at the same location, John’s BP on Edmunds Street. That incident is alleged to have occurred
on May 4, according to South Boston Police Department Investigator R. E. Redd.
According to Redd, a citizen traveling in the area noticed that one of the windows on the front of John’s BP had been broken Friday night.
“That citizen also saw someone running from the area, followed that person for a short distance and gave police a description as well as the route of travel the person took,” Redd said.
A tracking dog from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office was called in to assist in the search.
The information given to the police as well as evidence gathered at the scene led to Buster’s arrest at his residence a short time later, Redd said.
Sgt. R. D. Edmonds and Cpl. G. M. Gilliam were the arresting officers.
“There also was evidence from a previous breaking and entering at the same location on May 4 that led to Buster being charged with breaking and entering on that date as well,” Redd said.
Buster is being held in the Blue Ridge Adult Detention Center under a $15,000 bond, according to Redd.
In other sheriff’s office reports, John Michael Chappell, 40, of Vernon Hill was charged with felony breaking and entering into the Vernon Hill residence of Joseph Ash Jr., destroying a driveway gate and stealing three cans of Natural Light beer from the residence, according to Halifax County Sheriff Stanley Noblin.
Deputy Tyler Clarke was called to Ash’s house on 1040 Chappell Trail Saturday around 9 p.m. to investigate a reported break-in, the sheriff said.
“Someone had broken through the gate at the top of his driveway, then knocked out a kitchen window to gain entry to the house,” he added.
As a result of Clarke’s investigation, warrants for the three charges were served on Chappell on Sunday, the sheriff said.
