Nelson County, Virginia
Earlier this week folks in the Schuyler area of Eastern Nelson County saw a tremendous number of state police vehicles in the Glade Road area. Nelson County, Virginia Sheriff, David Brooks, tells NCL it was part of an underwater search at two different quarries in that area. “Stolen items were found around this quarry on Glade Road prior to this search. On September 16th and 18th a search warrant was served at a residence on Hunting Lodge Road. Three truckloads of items that appear to be stolen were removed from the residence during the two day search. Items found at the quarries were consistent with smash and grabs in Wingina and Schuyler,” Sheriff Brooks says.
Back in July numerous cars were broken into at the Wingina Landing. Sheriff Brooks believes some of the items recovered may be connected to those auto burglaries. “I knew the quarry would be an excellent source for the thieves to dispose of any unwanted property. I requested help from the State Police Dive Team. On Wednesday, we searched two quarries on Glade Road in Schuyler and items of interest were found in the quarries,” Sheriff Brooks continued.
Sheriff Brooks says they are looking through reports now to match items found with victims.
