STAFFORD, Va. (WWBT) - Police say three suspects were arrested on multiple charges after a larceny incident in Stafford County.

On May 8 at approximately 6:57 p.m., Deputy West responded to a larceny in progress at the Wawa located at 72 Austin Park Drive.

A caller reported that a green-colored vehicle was parked outside of the store and believed the occupants had stolen items from the store.

The green-colored vehicle left out of the parking lot as Deputy West arrived.

Sgt. Flick arrived at the Wawa and reviewed the security camera footage.

According to the footage, Sgt. Flick said that a larceny had occurred and that one of the subjects had stolen a bag of jolly ranchers.

Deputy West initiated a traffic stop in the area of Pilot Knob Loop.

The suspect vehicle pulled over and several occupants exited and left the scene.

Vincent Comfort, 39, of Woodbridge, who was the driver, remained on the scene. According to police, Comfort was uncooperative and belligerent.

Comfort attempted to drive away and subsequently resisted arrest. A struggle ensued, and Comfort kicked Deputy Mangan and Sgt. Simpson. He also assaulted Deputy Vaughn. Eventually, Comfort was taken into custody.

After sustaining a laceration to his forehead during the altercation, Comfort was transported to a local hospital for evaluation, where he continued to be uncooperative and combative.

Police searched Comfort’s vehicle and found drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance.

Deputies learned that Davis was wanted out of Chesterfield County and Prince William County for failure to appear.

Drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance belonging to Davis were also located, police say.

Davis was taken into custody and incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond on his outstanding warrants.
