Several people arrested; accused of drug trafficking

Several people were arrested in Southwest Virginia in connection with what police were describing as a sophisticated drug trafficking operation that was also active in at least one other state. Police say that they have identified over 20 people with ties to this operation. But, at this time, they have only made 11 arrests, although they say more are forthcoming. In this latest official action, police made two of their arrests in connection with a search warrant they obtained after arresting another suspect.

Virginia's reckless driving laws are broad

Many states have reckless driving laws. Using these laws, police and prosecutors can criminally punish drivers who engage in behaviors that law enforcement officers deem to be particularly dangerous or careless. In Virginia, the laws against reckless driving are especially broad. For instance, just about anyone who causes an accident can face a charge of misdemeanor reckless driving, because reckless driving in Virginia is any sort of driving that endangers another person's life or property, even if no other traffic laws are broken.

Former employee at local fire department accused of theft

A person who at one time was affiliated with the Harrisonburg Fire Department has been charged with multiple criminal felonies in connection with an alleged break-in at a fire station. While the suspect has been identified as a former employee, it is not clear whether he was a firefighter or served in a supporting capacity.

What is the difference between grand and petit larceny?

A larceny is generally a theft and a theft can involve a number of elements. It can involve the taking of property from someone else and the intent of the taking party to prevent the property's owner from ever getting it back. In Virginia, larcenies are classified as either grand or petit.
