Deputies have arrested three suspects linked to 69 vehicle break-ins in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford, according to Capt. Jeffery Pearce, Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
"The investigation took a fortunate turn, when a vehicle was stopped by a patrol deputy for a routine traffic violation," Pearce said in a release. "Upon closer inspection, stolen property from several locations was recognized by the deputy, and detectives responded to the location," he said.
Further investigation revealed the three suspects had allegedly been responsible for a string of larcenies from vehicles in several neighborhoods, including the Fox Point, Crown Grant, Lees Park, Hamilton’s Crossing, Lee’s Crossing, Pelham’s Crossing and Park Wood subdivisions.
The three suspects are identified as Deandre Rice, 22; Eugene Evans, 18; and Antoneio Chapman, 19.
"Detectives have recovered some of the stolen property and will be contacting the victims to arrange for the return of their belongings," Pearce said.
