Three men charged with five Chesterfield home burglaries

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Chesterfield police nab three young men accused in a month long home burglary spree. Two happened in the Foxberry neighborhood off Hicks road. One was near Newby's Bridge and the other two near Genito. All this happened during the month of July.

Police said two homes were hit on the same day, an hour apart in broad daylight. The suspects are accused of swiping everything from cash to electronics.

Kevon Wright, John Lewis and Waltrell Daniel are off the streets. But not before police said they rummaged through five Chesterfield homes in July for whatever they could get their hands on including TV's, cameras, computers and cash.

Two of the break ins happened in the Foxberry neighborhood. A report of a suspicious car had peaked detectives' interests. In one case on Den Bark Drive, police said the suspects kicked in the back door.

Deborah Delaware lives across from where the second home was hit on Cropper Circle.

"I had a police officer knock on my door and asked me if I had seen a jeep going through the neighborhood," said Delaware.

She was warned to lock her doors and windows. She did just that and went a step further by setting her alarm.

"I'm glad they were caught cause it makes me feel safe," said Delaware.

Police said at one point, the suspects were seen by officers leaving the neighborhood. Shortly after the arrests, they were able to link all five cases.

The suspects each face burglary and grand larceny charges. Two are expected in court next month, the third should face a judge Tuesday.
