Police: Woman helped man escape from warrant service

Daily Staff Report

A Toms Brook man and a woman were arrested Wednesday afternoon in Woodstock after the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office said she helped him escape from warrant service.

A deputy went to serve warrants for felony shoplifting and third-offense misdemeanor larceny -- a felony -- at about 10:50 a.m. on Michael Lee Gray Jr., 23, of 1544 Hahns Lane, Lt. Darcy Dellinger said.

Barbara Nicole Harlow, 22, of 509 Indian Camp Trail, Maurertown, said Gray wasn't home, but a deputy saw him going out the back door, according to Dellinger.

A be-on-the-lookout bulletin was broadcast, he said, and a deputy spotted the pair driving off Interstate 81 at the Woodstock exit and pulled them over on South Ox Road at about 2:15 p.m., Dellinger said.

He said no additional charges were placed against Gray, but Harlow was charged with obstruction of justice for picking him up after he left his house.

According to online Shenandoah County Circuit Court records, Gray was sentenced to serve two years in prison after pleading guilty to malicious wounding, grand larceny/pickpocketing and vandalism in 2009. Four years ago, he was convicted of domestic violence, underage purchase of alcohol and resisting arrest, according to court records.

This past October, Gray was convicted of illegally obtaining cable, and received a suspended sentence, according to court records, and his probation was revoked with his getting time served -- 36 days in jail.
