A Stuart man is in custody following an investigation of multiple larcenies and vandalisms in the Virginia 8 south and Clark House Farm areas of Patrick County, according to Patrick County Sheriff Dan Smith. The incidents were reported in that area of the county between December 20-24, including breaking and entering at the Five Forks Wesleyan Church parsonage, Smith alleged.
Authorities conducted extensive surveillance and investigative work, including the execution of multiple search warrants, according to the sheriff, and one man was charged in connection with the incidents. Items seized as a result of those search warrants allegedly link a person to numerous crimes, the sheriff stated.
Logan Eugene Beville, 25, is being held without bond on a charge of possession of stolen property.
“Investigators Jason Kruse and Oscar Tejeda, along with numerous patrol deputies, poured an enormous amount of effort into solving this series of crimes,” Smith said in a Sunday release. “We are fortunate to have such dedicated law enforcement professionals in our county.”
He added that multiple felony charges are forthcoming and asked anyone with information about the alleged incidents to call him confidentiality at (276) 692-7012.
