Three charged with trespassing, brandishing weapon near school

WOODSTOCK — The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office arrested three people on charges of trespassing and brandishing a weapon near a school after they allegedly broke into a vehicle near Central High School.

According to a criminal complaint, officer D.R. Dunivan of the Woodstock Police Department responded to a call at 3:05 p.m. Monday. When he arrived at the scene, he viewed a video showing Alton Jones, 40, of Edinburg, smashing the rear window of a vehicle owned by Delmarco Brown, the complaint states.

The video showed Jones with Shyheim Lamb and Justin Brown, according to the complaint. The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jones, Lamb and Justin Brown.

“In the video the three males were asked to leave and refused,” Dunivan’s complaint reads. “Delmarco Brown told me Jones showed a pistol to him and [Jones’] two friends that were with him.”

The complaint adds that, according to Delmarco Brown, Jones handed his pistol to Lamb.

Jones, Lamb and Justin Brown were charged with brandishing a weapon within 1,000 feet of a school zone, although the criminal complaint only mentions Jones and Lamb holding a gun. The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office has not responded to a request for comment.

The three were also all charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct. Jones was also charged with destruction of property.

“All three males acted together in an aggressive [manner toward] Delmarco Brown,” the complaint states.

According to documents filed in Shenandoah County General District Court, the three men arrested “have been classified as gang members by Virginia.”

The three are all currently held in Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail without bond.
