A breaking and entering suspect was arrested Sunday after deputies found him at a motel a couple doors down from the scene of the crime.

On August 21st at approximately 5:25 p.m. deputies responded to Nobel Auto Select at 228 Cambridge Street for a breaking and entering. Deputy F.C. O’Neill discovered the large glass window in the front door of the business had been shattered. The business owner reported cash and three sets of car keys were stolen during the crime.

Video surveillance showed the suspect throw a car battery through the window and enter the business. Deputy O’Neill was joined by Detective A. Sanchez, Jr. and they canvassed the area. The duo did not have to go far, as the suspect was located at El Patio Motel, just a couple doors down the street.

The suspect was identified as David Rios, 43, of Woodbridge. The stolen car keys were recovered and returned to the business owner. Unfortunately, the stolen cash was not recovered. During the arrest deputies discovered a suspected controlled substance in Rios’ sock.

Rios was charged with breaking and entering, petit larceny, vandalism, tampering with a vehicle and possession of a controlled substance. He was held without bond at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
