Police Bust Two After Hours On The Run

Posted: December 14, 2012

After several hours on the run from police, a Toms Brook man was arrested Wednesday on two charges of larceny, according to sheriff’s deputies.


Lt. Darcy Dellinger with the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office said police attempted to serve a warrant for the arrest of Michael Lee Gray Jr., 23, at about 10:45 a.m. on two felony charges of larceny. Gray is accused of committing the thefts at the Woodstock Walmart on Oct. 27, Dellinger said.


When police arrived at Gray’s Toms Brook home at 1544 Hahns Lane, Barbara Harlow, 22, of Maurertown, answered the door and reported that Gray was not home.


“The deputy then saw [Gray] running out the back door,” Dellinger said.


As police pursued the accused on foot, Harlow allegedly picked Gray up in a vehicle and drove him away from the scene.


Another deputy in Woodstock located Harlow’s vehicle exiting Interstate 81 in Woodstock and stopped it on South Ox Road around 3 p.m. Both Gray and Harlow were taken into custody without incident.


No additional charges were placed against Gray; Harlow was charged with one count of obstruction of justice.


Gray remains incarcerated at the Shenandoah County Jail and is scheduled to appear in Shenandoah County General District Court on Feb. 4. Harlow was released on an unsecured bond and is to appear in court Jan. 25.
