NELSON COUNTY, Va. – Three Albemarle County siblings have been charged in connection with the disappearance of a Nelson County man. Despite Wednesday’s arrests (Feb. 5), the search still continues for missing Waynesboro police reservist Kevin W. Quick, 45, of Rockfish, Va.
Virginia State Police took Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis (aka Shelton), 18, both of the 2600 block of Barracks Road West in Albemarle County, Va., into custody without incident. The arrests took place at a City of Alexandria hotel at approximately 11 p.m. Tuesday (Feb. 4). They have each been charged by state police with possession of stolen property/grand larceny for the theft of Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner.
Daniel Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office for his connection involving an on-going shooting investigation by the sheriff’s office on Feb. 2, in the 700 block of Mica Road.
Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was also taken into custody at the same location on an unrelated outstanding arrest warrant issued by the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office. Shelton lives at the same address as her siblings.
All three are being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail on no bond.
Quick was last seen Friday night (Jan. 31, 2014) as he left his mother’s residence in Afton, Va. He was headed to a friend’s residence at Turtle Creek Apartments in Albemarle County, Va.
