Pair Face Burglary, Drug Charges
Posted: December 8, 2012
SHENANDOAH COUNTY - Two men were arrested Nov. 29 near Woodstock on several charges of larceny and possession of narcotics with intent to distribute, police say.
Lt. Darcy Dellinger with the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were dispatched to the 700 block of Wiseman Road for reports of a trespassing. The men were gone by the time police arrived, but their vehicle was located and stopped.
“When [officers] stopped the vehicle, the deputy observed engine parts in the back,” Dellinger said.
Inside were Jason Andrew Hoover, 31, of Waynesboro, and Eric L. Broughman, 28, of Lyndhurst, Dellinger said. They told officers they had gone to a residence on Wiseman Road because “someone there owed them money.”
“The [person] didn’t have it so they thought they’d take the vehicle parts as payment,” Dellinger said the men told police.
The engine parts were valued at more than $200.
During a search of the vehicle, police say they discovered two bags of a white powdery substance as well as numerous empty plastic bags and a scale.
Hoover was charged with possession of burglary tools, trespassing, grand larceny, conspiring to possess burglary tools and to commit a felony. Broughman was charged with the same as well as possession of narcotics with intent to distribute.
Hoover was released from jail on a secured bond. Broughman remains incarcerated at Shenandoah County Jail.
Both men are scheduled to appear in Shenandoah County General District Court on Dec. 28 at 9 a.m.
