Nelson County, Virginia Sheriff David Brooks tells NCL that 32 year old Michael Wayne Fridley has been charged with grand larceny in the recent break ins at The Tuckahoe Antique Mall and the Afton Post Office in Northern Nelson County. We first told you about the antique mall break in late last month.
Sheriff Brooks says a 16 year old juvenile has also been charged with 5 different counts (two misdemeanors and 3 felonies) in connection with the burglaries. “The two were working in concert together,” Sheriff Brooks said Friday afternoon. Police says the pair cut the power and phone lines running into Tuckahoe and attempted to break in but were unsuccessful, but not before causing thousands of dollars in damage trying. The Afton Post Office was broken into earlier this year.
