Recent rash of thefts probed

By Sally Voth -- svoth@nvdaily.com

WOODSTOCK -- The Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office is investigating various thefts scattered throughout the county in recent weeks.

The most expensive item stolen was a 1999 Chevrolet 2500 pickup. That was taken March 7 from a business in the 2000 block of Orkney Grade in Basye, Lt. Darcy Dellinger said.
He said the business had been broken into and ransacked, causing about $150 in damage.
The truck, which was worth more than $3,000, was found later that day on Runions Creek Road, Rockingham County, Dellinger said. A tool box on the truck had been damaged, he said.

A computer, tools and fishing gear were reported stolen from a vehicle parked at Tomahawk Pond on Orkney Springs Road, Orkney Springs, on March 5.

Forced entry was made into the vehicle, Dellinger said. The items taken were worth more than $1,400, he said.

A week earlier, tools and a four-wheeler were reported stolen from the 1000 block of Harman Road in Maurertown.

Forced entry was made into an outbuilding between Feb. 25-28, according to Dellinger. He said a 2001 Kawasaki Bayou 220 red ATV worth more than $1,000 was stolen, as were a welder and accessories worth more than $200 and hand and power tools valued at more than $200.

In another larceny, a Stihl Farm Boss orange and white chain saw, worth more than $200, was taken from a home's front porch in the 1000 block of Ridge Hollow Road, Edinburg.
That theft occurred between Feb. 16 and March 5, Dellinger said.

And, between Feb. 25-March 4, a red Murray 14.5 horsepower riding lawn mower was taken from a lot in the 7000 block of Back Road, Woodstock. The mower was estimated to be worth more than $200.

Anyone with any information on the thefts is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 459-6100.


One can only hope that when these individuals are caught by the police, they face stiff justice from the new CA and not a slap on the wrist as her predecessor (now Assistant CA) would have done.

If they are caught by a homeowner, may God help them, because I doubt anyone else will.

I agree with Rusty...one of these little punk thieves are going to hit the wrong house at the wrong time. You'll have a man or woman who's working feverishly to feed their children and then some lazy stealing "Jack-Leg" is going to try to steal something from that person!!......It's gonna' be a bad day for the bad guy!!.....At some point, this WILL happen, because people have had enough!

Most of these thieves these days are stealing to get things to swap for painkillers. A similar to opium. In the early 20th century when opium became a problem in China, they gave a deadline to quit. When the addicts did not quit, they lined them up and shot them in the head. Our country will never do anything that harsh. So please if an intruder comes into your house to steal, blow as much of their head off as you can. We will never "line them up" and disolve them the right way so lets do it ourselves!
