Fluvanna Sheriff Looking for Information on Daytime Burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office Press Release

The Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office is looking for information in connection to a series of daytime residential burglaries throughout Fluvanna County. Many of the burglaries were focused in the Kents Store area.

Investigators with the Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office have been working with the Louisa County Sheriff's Office and the Goochland County Sheriff's Office to solve these crimes as like burglaries have occurred in those jurisdictions well. That joint operation has yielded two arrests.

The persons arrested are Jason Rhoten of Louisa and Olivia Epps of Henrico. No charges have been brought on those individuals in Fluvanna at this time, but they are persons of interest and the cases are still being investigated.

It is possible a small silver car may be involved in the thefts.

Several burglaries are also being investigated in the Palmyra and Scottsville areas.

Items taken include household electronics, jewelry, precious metals and coins, and firearms. Once stolen, these items are typically sold on the street for fractions of their actual value. If you witness anyone selling items in this fashion, please call your local law enforcement agency.

The investigation into these crimes is ongoing and the sheriff's office is asking anyone with information to contact the sheriff's office at 434-589- 8211. A cash reward of up to $1,000 is available for information related to these cases.

Additionally, as the holidays approach, the sheriff's office would like to remind people that larcenies tend to increase this time of year as more items of value tend to be in the home. Please keep all doors to your home and autos locked and valuables out of sight. Audible home and auto alarms are proven to reduce the amount of loss during a theft. After the holidays, please do not leave large boxes from expensive consumer goods on the street or visible as it tells would be thieves what is in you home.

Lt. David R. Wells
