Mystery: Sheriff's Office Hasn't Left Crime Scene Since Saturday
Neighbors say law enforcement brought back hoe to 881 Belle Plains Rd.
Original Report: Residents of the White Oaks neighborhood report a heavy presence of law enforcement at a 881 Belle Plains Road home in Fredericksburg over the weekend into Monday.
A Fredericksburg Patch reader noted on Facebook that there was "major police activity" on Belle Plains Road on Saturday, March 16. "But we have heard no news on what was going on," she said. "We in White Oak would love to know."
Neighbors say law enforcement presence has continued all weekend. "On Saturday I saw Stafford County Sheriff's Office cars and a crime scene RV, and FBI vehicles lining the driveway and road," said a neighbor who spoke with Patch but asked not to be named. She said she also saw search dogs and a back hoe brought to the scene. "They were there again on Sunday," she said.
Residents of the area have been gathering at a neighbor's house next to the crime scene to watch the comings and goings of law enforcement.
The home at the address is on 3.48 acres, according to realtor.com. The house is not visible from the road.
A Stafford County Sheriff's deputy has been stationed in a patrol car at the head of the driveway, guarding the entrance since Friday. On Monday afternoon the deputy told Patch he could not provide any information.
Patch was referred to Maj. David Decatur in the Stafford Sheriff's Office for information, and is awaiting his response.
