Two arrested for crimes in Montross and Oldhams

Two suspects arrested last Tuesday, March 26 for breaking and entering in Montross and Oldhams are suspected in other crimes through out the Northern Neck.

Between the evening hours of March 25 and the morning of March 26 Two businesses, the Mexicana II Grocery/Mariachi

Restaurant and Oldhams country store, were broken into and small amounts of change from the cash registers along with cigarettes were stolen.

Michael R. Bradshaw Jr. age 21 of Montross and Sherdrick B. Covert Jr. age 22 of Montross, have been arrested and charged with with two counts of breaking and entering.

 

The Arrest
Richmond County has been working closely with Westmoreland County to solve several crimes in the Northern Neck area.
Before the Westmoreland breaking and entering, Bradshaw and Covert were suspects in other crimes in both in counties.

After Virginia State Police was notified of the suspects’ possible involvement with these crimes, they observed a vehicle which matched the description of a Honda belonging to Bradshaw, leading to the apprehension of the suspects.

Bradshaw and Covert were apprehended by the Richmond county Sheriff’s department shortly after they were spotted by Virginia State Police and were arrested on charges unrelated to the Westmoreland breaking and entering Tuesday evening.

While the two suspects were being held at Northern Neck Regional Jail, Westmoreland arrest warrants were executed. Westmoreland detectives also executed a search warrant on Bradshaw’s vehicle on Tuesday evening in connection with this and other crimes, resulting in the recovery of items from the Westmoreland breaking and entering.

Westmoreland County Sheriff, C. O. Balderson said in a phone interview on Wednesday, “The combined efforts of the Richmond County and Westmoreland County Sheriff’s offices aided tremendously in the apprehension of the individuals responsible for these acts.”

Bradshaw and Covert’s first appearance in court for the Westmoreland breaking and entering occurred on Wednesday March 27 in the Westmoreland Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

The two men have been granted court appointed attorneys and continue to be held without bond at the Northern Neck Regional Jail awaiting their next court appearance on May 21 in Westmoreland General District Court.

The Westmoreland breaking and entering is still under investigation and other charges are pending.

Balderson said, “Thankfully businesses that have been recently broken into have had small amounts of money left in registers. Even more importantly no one has been injured as a result of these crimes.”

Balderson advises other businesses to take the same precautions when closing their establishments.
