Prom PROMise awards held for Culpeper County High School

Press Release from Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office:

Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office has encouraged Eastern View and Culpeper County High School students to behave responsibly before, during, and after prom and to be alcohol- and drug-free on prom night, and students who signed the “my 2015 PROMise” pledge to do so were entered into a raffle at their respective schools to win a free limousine for prom night courtesy of Sheriff Scott Jenkins and CCSO.

At the May 7 CCHS prom assembly, SRO Sergeant Joe Curtis spoke about the “my PROMise” initiative, Sheriff Jenkins introduced a video of the EVHS mock crash, and the guest speaker was Mrs. Kim McKiernan, who started a local MADD chapter that meets in Rappahannock County and includes Culpeper.

CCHS student Dalton McKinley won a night in a stretch Hummer limousine with 15 of his friends.

Press release from Culpeper Police:

Due to the age of the suspect, name and photograph are witheld.

On May 12, 2015, five homes in the 800 Block of Gallows Court in Culpeper were burglarized during daytime hours. There was no one home during each of these entries. Random items were removed during these events. There were no injuries that resulted from any of these incidents.

All of these houses had forced entry to gain access to the home’s interior. Extensive damage was done during entry, totaling in the hundreds of dollars. The suspect was able to spend time looking through the homes, prior to taking anything. Items taken from the houses include cash, electronics, and food.

Officer P. Siebel responded to the scene of three homes in the Gallows Court area at approximately 7:30 in the evening to begin the investigation. Master Police Officer Detective Richard Brooking, with the Criminal Investigations Section of the Culpeper Police Department, was called to the homes to process the scenes and collect evidence. Officers canvassed the area and interviewed witnesses. These interviews led to the development of a suspect.

The suspect, a 14 year old male, was interviewed and cooperated with the investigation. Based on the investigation, two additional homes were found to have been burglarized.

Detectives from the Culpeper Police Department executed a search warrant in the 800 Block of Gallows Court. This search warrant resulted in the recovery of several items that had been reported stolen during the burglaries.

Detectives have obtained several petitions for the juvenile. These include five counts of breaking and entering and two counts of grand larceny.

“Thanks to the citizens for being observant to their surroundings and communicating information to the officers on scene. Their observations led to the development of the suspect,” said Chief Chris R. Jenkins.

This investigation is still active and ongoing.

Anyone with additional information involving this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Richard Brooking at 540-829-5504 or to remain anonymous Culpeper Crime Solvers at 540-727-0300.
