|Double Larceny Solved
|By PIO Ryan Wilbur
|February 8, 2024
A 33-year-old Stafford felon was found in possession of much more than just stolen items after a citizen saw something and said something.
On February 7th at approximately 5:09 a.m. Deputy M.N. Sayegh responded to Jamall Cove for a report of a larceny. The victim advised his vehicle was unlawfully entered and rummaged through. While the suspect left a plethora of clues, he did not leave the victim’s firearm that was in the vehicle.
Just down the street, on Lawhorn Road, Deputy C.D. Sullivan was also investigating a larceny. The victim advised his vehicle too was unlawfully entered and rummaged through. The suspect stole not only cash, but the victim’s credit cards.
At approximately 12:08 p.m. Deputy B.M. Stanfill responded to Minniear Court for a simple suspicious vehicle call. The caller advised a vehicle they had never seen before was near their house with an unconscious male inside. When Deputy Stanfill approached the vehicle, he observed the driver, Keith McAdoo, still asleep with suspected controlled substances within the vehicle. McAdoo was detained and a search of the vehicle was conducted where deputies located all of the stolen items from the previous larcenies.
McAdoo was charged with unlawful entry into a vehicle, larceny, and credit card theft for the first incident. He was charged with unlawful entry into a vehicle, entering a property with the intent to damage, and grand larceny of a firearm for the second incident. Finally, he was charged with possession of controlled substances, weapon possession by a felon, carrying a concealed weapon, and possessing a firearm while in possession of controlled substances. He was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
Thank you to the citizen who saw something and said something. We also want to continue to encourage citizens to remove valuables and lock up their vehicles prior to going to bed. A simple 9:00 p.m. checklist can help prevent crimes of these natures.
