PATRICK COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Three members of a Henry County family are facing multiple charges for breaking-and-entering and larceny following recent break-ins in Patrick County.
According to the Patrick County Sheriff’s Office, numerous break-ins have occurred in the Patrick Springs and county line areas over the past several months, prompting an investigation.
Authorities say they identified a total of eight locations on Spring Road, Microfilm Road, Hollandsworth Drive, and Abram Penn Highway as part of the investigation.
Household items, tools, and collectibles valued at several thousand dollars were the main items stolen. As of this writing, though, officials say some of the property has been recovered.
“All of our investigators have been working diligently to bring resolution for the victims,” Patrick County Sheriff Dan Smith said in a statement on Monday, Nov. 29.
The sheriff’s office told WFXR News on Monday that three people from Bassett — including 32-year-old French Andrew Bailey and 34-year-old Jessica Renee Bailey, who live at the same address on Stones Dairy Road, along with 30-year-old Jamie Bailey of Spruce Pine Drive — were arrested on different days last week in connection with the recent incidents.
All three family members have been charged with multiple counts of felony breaking-and-entering, grand larceny, and misdemeanor petit larceny, authorities say.
Authorities say the Henry County Sheriff’s Office also assisted in the investigation since all of the search warrants were executed in that county.
According to Smith, “a great deal of work goes in to building each case; from gathering evidence, writing search warrants and interviewing suspects, it is a time intensive process.”
If you have any additional information about the three Bailey family members in connection with the recent thefts, you are asked to contact Smith at 276-692-7012.
