On Tuesday, December 15, 2020, deputies responded to the 6300 block of Mechanicsville Turnpike for a reported larceny from an automobile. The victim’s vehicle had a window broken out and property was stolen. Upon arrival, the victim advised deputies that their credit cards had already been used at a nearby grocery store.
Deputies immediately began to canvass the area and located an individual walking out of a grocery store with only a gift card. Deputies conducted a consensual encounter with the individual. A vehicle was then observed leaving the parking lot in a reckless manner. A traffic stop was immediately initiated on that vehicle.
During the course of the stop, numerous tools consistent with breaking out a window were observed in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle was conducted and personal property belonging to the victim was located. The driver and passenger in this vehicle were involved in the reported larceny, along with the subject deputies were speaking to in the parking lot.
The following subjects were arrested: Markeith D. Mobley (27) of Pocono Beach, FL; Mark A. Girly (24) of Fort Lauderdale, FL; and Darien A. Martin (24) of Fort Lauderdale, FL. All three subjects are currently incarcerated at Pamunkey Regional Jail and have been charged with Conspiracy to Commit Larceny (F), Possession of Burglary Tools (F), Obtaining Money by False Pretenses (F), Credit Card Theft (F), Credit Card Fraud (F) and Criminally Receiving Stolen Goods (F). Photos of the arrestees are attached.
“I am incredibly proud of the quick response and teamwork by our deputies. Their thoroughness and decisive action led to a swift resolution in this case. We will now work closely with the Hanover Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office to ensure a successful prosecution,” said Colonel David R. Hines, Sheriff.
