Woodstock man accused in crime wave

Authorities: He broke into cars in Woodstock and stole items

By Joe Beck

A Woodstock man is facing 25 charges linking him to a string of thefts from vehicles and vehicle break-ins from mid-August until mid-October.

Police arrested Boyd Milton Helsley III, 20, at his home at 58 Woodpark Lane, Woodstock, police Investigator Derek Good said Thursday. The charges against Helsley include grand larceny, petit larceny, vandalism and entering or setting in motion a vehicle.

Good said Helsley is being held without bond in the Shenanadoah County Jail. A court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 19.

Helsley is also charged with single counts of vandalism and grand larceny from incidents in March.

Good said Helsley entered 12 or 13 vehicles in Woodstock during a crime spree that spanned two months. Helsley broke into the vehicles through their windows and stole electronic devices, Good said.

Good said the investigation is continuing and other charges are likely to be filed.

"We're still trying to track things down," Good said, adding, "other people may be involved."

    for these other people involved do not be wonderin to far out of the town limits especially towards the north, or they will get some buck shot in there bodies.

    These people need to get a job. and work once for a living.

    No surprise here....Hopefully the Commonwealth Attorney will fight hard for a maximum sentance for all of the things this guy has done to make up for all of the stuff he has done and not gotten caught.

    It has been a long time coming!
