Four people have been charged in connection with burglaries that occurred in December.
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson said the suspects are charged with a burglary at Stein, Inc., located at 3995 Highmarket Street in the Graves Station Community.
Those arrested are: Ashton David McElveen, 24, of 2602 Rion Street, Georgetown; Ryan O’Neil Woodruff, 20, of 496 Alligator Lane, Andrews; Hunter Brandy Haselden, 18, of 128 Owens Corner Drive, Hemingway; and Joshua Andrew McBride, 25, of 304 Meadow Street, Georgetown,
Cuthbertson said at about 11:30 p.m. on December 29, deputies were conducting property checks in the Graves Community and observed a vehicle with three white males and one white female parked sideways at the entrance to Stein, Inc. While deputies were interviewing the people in the vehicle, a property check revealed forced entry into an office trailer.
McElveen is charged with Trespassing, Petit Larceny, and Second Degree Burglary. Woodruff is charged with Receiving Stolen Goods and Second Degree Burglary. McBride is charged with Receiving Stolen Goods and Second Degree Burglary. Haselden is charged with Receiving Stolen Goods and Second Degree Burglary.
Also, on December 30, deputies responded to a residence on Highmarket Street which was burglarized. After reviewing the property in evidence, investigators determined that Woodruff, McElveen and McBride allegedly committed that crime.
As a result of further investigation, it was determined that Woodruff and McBride committed a burglary at a residence on Highmarket Street on December 19.
They were charged in that case as well, Cuthbertson said.
