Three arrested for petit larceny
Shenandoah County Sheriff’s deputies charged three people with petit larceny on Saturday and Sunday following a report of stolen plates from a car dealership.
Capt. Wesley Dellinger of the Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a call about larceny at around 7:15 p.m. Saturday and dispatched to Grubbs Chevrolet. He said officers were told to be on the lookout for a vehicle matching a description given by the caller.
“The larceny involved license plates of a vehicle that was parked there on the lot,” he said.
He said state police were able to recognize and stop the identified vehicle around Millner Road near Toms Brook about 15 minutes after the call was made. While they were stopped, he said one of the vehicle’s occupants fled on foot. He said Woodstock resident Michael Ray Dolan, Martinsburg, West Virginia, resident Traci Jo Stinson and a 13-year-old male remained in the car.
Dellinger said Dolan and Stinson were charged with petit larceny in relation to the Grubbs Chevrolet call. Dolan was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Both are scheduled to appear in Shenandoah County General District Court on April 22, and Dolan is set to appear in Shenandoah County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on May 19.
While conducting a follow-up investigation at Grubbs Chevrolet, Dellinger said deputies recognized an individual walking south along U.S. 11 just after midnight on Sunday.
Deputies identified the individual as Woodstock resident Charles Johann Barbardo and arrested him. Dellinger said Barbardo was the third adult occupant who had run from the car and hidden from police.
“During that course of the investigation, he was found in possession of marijuana,” Dellinger said. “He was returning home after fleeing from the state police.”
Dellinger said Barbardo is being held without bond at Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail. Barbardo is scheduled to appear in Shenandoah General District Court on April 22.
“He was charged with petit larceny. However, it’s the third larceny he’s committed, so it makes it a felony,” Dellinger said.
