    BRANDY STATION — One man is in custody, and the hunt continues for a second suspect after a violent home invasion Monday afternoon in the 21000 block of Mount Pony Road.

    Authorities are seeking Gregory Lee Wallace, 27, whose last known address is in the 7000 block of Third Street in Remington. He is described as a black male, 6 feet, 3 inches tall and about 215 pounds.

    Sgt. Jim Fox of the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office said Wallace, who also goes by the name Michael Lee Ketterman, may be armed. Fox advised area residents to “use normal precautions and make sure their houses are locked.”

    Wallace was last seen wearing a dark jacket or tan shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

    According to the Sheriff’s Office, Monday’s home invasion occurred around 1:40 p.m.; an unidentified male victim was treated and released at an area hospital for unspecified injuries.

    About 10 minutes later, the two suspects were involved in a car crash with a Culpeper sheriff’s deputy on Brandy Road, just east of the U.S. 29 intersection with Alanthus Road.

    Fox said Darryl Wallace, 18, of Washington, D.C., was detained at the scene and taken to headquarters for questioning; charges are pending against him. Police and witnesses say Gregory Wallace fled on foot across the highway.

    Fox said the suspects are related but was unsure of their exact relationship.

    Around the time of the crash, emergency dispatches indicated “shots fired” in the area of Bentley Lane off Auburn Road in Brandy Station. However, Fox clarified earlier news reports by saying the shots were not connected to this incident and were not of a criminal nature.

    Meanwhile, northbound traffic on U.S. 29 near Brandy Station was at a standstill for several miles as Culpeper and Fauquier county sheriff’s deputies, along with state troopers, tracking dogs, a Fairfax police helicopter and a police airplane circled overhead.

    By Monday night, authorities were still searching west of U.S. 29 in fields surrounding the Brandy Station carnival area.

    “They have shut down the perimeter search, but we are continuing to do saturation patrols,” Fox said, adding that the search would likely continue overnight and into today.

    Fox said the motive for the home invasion is still under investigation.

    Witness reaction
    Jimmy Howell, owner of Jimmy’s Auto Repair & Trailer supply, and employee Charlie Gochenour were working when they saw the crash, just down the street on Brandy Road.

    “I was in the trailer welding and I saw them,” Gochenour said. “Cop cars were everywhere.”

    The men said none of the vehicles appeared to be travelling faster than 25 mph before the crash occurred.

    Daryl Wallace was taken into custody after the white Cadillac sedan he was in collided with a Dodge Magnum driven by Culpeper Deputy Christopher Tash.

    After the crash, as both men watched, Gochenour said it appeared one of the suspects pulled a television and a sawed-off shotgun from the sedan. He said one of the men fled just a few feet from the shop, running between the business and a home.

    “We had an eye on him the whole time,” Howell said, adding that he grabbed two large wrenches from the shop for protection in case the suspect approached.

    The home invasion, chase, traffic backup, aerial search and investigation on the ground caused at least two other traffic accidents.

    Star-Exponent correspondent Greg VanNostrand reports that a state trooper was involved in a three-vehicle crash while investigating the incident. The trooper’s unmarked sedan was rear-ended on U.S. 29, causing his vehicle to hit a third car.

    And a Dominion Virginia bucket truck had to be pulled out of the median on U.S. 29 after the vehicle left the road for unknown reasons.

    Criminal record
    Records show Monday was not Gregory Wallace’s first run-in with law. Last month, town police charged him with burglary and malicious wounding following an incident in the 300 block of Duke Street. He was also charged in a 2008 incident where police say he fired a gun near Culpeper Head Start school.

    Second arrest made in Culpeper home-invasion case
    Suspect in Culpeper home-invasion robbery captured at restaurant, then released hours later

    Running from the law apparently can make a man hungry.

    The suspect who led Culpeper County sheriff's deputies on a merry chase through the briars and brambles near Brandy Station Monday afternoon was arrested without incident while eating an early breakfast at IHOP yesterday.

    What's more, 27-year-old Gregory Wallace informed on himself as to his whereabouts, according to authorities. But the strangest part of the whole incident is that the man who was at the heart of an intensive and expensive manhunt was released on $10,000 bond within hours of his capture.

    Wallace is believed to have fled on foot after the car in which he was riding ran out of gas and collided with a vehicle driven by Culpeper County Sheriff's Deputy Chris Tash about 1:30 p.m.

    Tash and Deputy Terry Graham had been chasing the car for about four miles following the report of a home invasion and abduction on Mount Pony Road.

    When the vehicle crashed in the center of Brandy, a man alleged to be Gregory Wallace leaped from the Cadillac STS and made his way across U.S. 15/29. He eluded two-dozen state and local police officers, four K-9 units and two search aircraft all afternoon.

    Wallace's cousin, 18-year-old Darryl Wallace of Washington, was arrested at the crash scene. An 18-year-old hostage, who authorities allege had been pistol-whipped and forced at gunpoint to drive the getaway car, was taken to a hospital, where he received four stitches in his forehead.

    An intensive search for the suspect believed to be Gregory Wallace continued in the Brandy area until about 6 p.m., when sheriff's investigators toned their efforts down to regular patrols of a 3-mile perimeter. Wallace was nowhere to be found.

    Then, according to Culpeper town police Capt. Ricky Pinksaw, one of Wallace's family members called town police Sgt. Tim Chilton shortly before 1 a.m. concerned about a report that indicated Wallace may have been hurt.

    Chilton also voiced his concern and that, according to Pinksaw, resulted in a three-way conversation among the sergeant, the suspect and the family member.

    "I just wanted to make sure you're OK," Chilton reportedly told Wallace, who allegedly replied, "I'm fine. I'm out here at IHOP."

    Within a few minutes, deputies and town police converged on the restaurant just north of the town limits. Wallace, who was in the middle of breakfast, was arrested without incident by town police on an outstanding obstruction of justice warrant in a unrelated case.

    Wallace also was charged with possession of cocaine, Pinksaw said.

    Neither the Sheriff's Office nor the town police are certain how Wallace made it from the bushes of Brandy Station to the IHOP Restaurant four miles away.

    Nor has it been determined how the getaway car, which the abduction victim said he was forced at gunpoint to drive, came to be involved in the incident.

    According to Sheriff's Capt. Joe Watson, the Cadillac is registered to neither the victim nor either suspect and has not been reported stolen.

    Pinksaw said Wallace was not armed at the time of his arrest, but Watson said Monday that a shotgun had been thrown from the getaway vehicle just before it crashed in Brandy. He said a pistol was found in the car.

    All of the goods that were taken in the home invasion, including a big-screen television, were recovered from the Cadillac, police said.

    Watson said the victim and the alleged abductors have all stated that they did not know one another, but authorities continue to investigate a possible connection.

    "I don't believe this was a random act," Watson said.

    As of last night, however, the sheriff and commonwealth's attorney had filed no charges in the Monday incident against Gregory Wallace, who made bail yesterday afternoon.

    Darryl Wallace, however, has been charged with robbery, breaking and entering, malicious wounding, using a firearm in commission of a felony and abduction. He is being held without bail pending a court hearing today.

    On March 3, 2008, town police arrested Gregory Wallace and charged him in connection with a shooting near the Head Start program school. A jury found him not guilty of shooting in public during this past June 24.

    At the same time, however, he entered a plea agreement on possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs, according to court records.

    The records show Wallace was sentenced to four years on that charge, with all but three months suspended. It is unclear how or when he served that three-month jail sentence.

    The Monday incident is still under investigation and Watson said that more charges may be filed.
