Two arrested for Basye burglary

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

Authorities have accused two people of breaking into a Basye home in mid-March and stealing items including guns they planned to sell.

Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested Ian Nathaniel Pace and Meghan Aileen Napier and charged each with single counts of breaking and entering, grand larceny of a firearm, possession of stolen property with intent to sell and destruction of property. Authorities also charged Pace and Napier with conspiracy to commit burglary and grand larceny, according to Lt. Wes Dellinger.

Pace, 20, of 111 Bill's Way, Woodstock, and Napier, 21, of 281 Pinewood Road, Quicksburg, remain held without bond at the Shenandoah County Jail in Woodstock, Dellinger said. Both defendants face preliminary hearings on their felony charges in Shenandoah County General District Court on May 25.

Pace and Napier forced their way through a door into the home in the 500 block of Linda Lane, Basye, sometime on March 12, according to Dellinger. The pair damaged the door to gain entry, Dellinger said. Authorities do not believe the two suspects "cased" the residence before committing the burglary, nor did either person know the homeowner, according to Dellinger.

Once inside, the suspect took a Beretta 9 mm pistol and a Walther P22 .22-caliber as well as a Sentry safe, according to Dellinger. The guns were valued at a total of $1,000 and the safe at $200, he said. The damage to the door was estimated at $500, according to Dellinger.
