    Appomattox man charged in Campbell County invasion

    At least one Appomattox County man is facing charges in connection to a home invasion in Campbell County on Tuesday evening where an elderly woman was gagged and her house ransacked, officials said.

    Capt. L.T. Guthrie said deputies obtained an arrest warrant for Donald Eugene Collier III on Wednesday, but he was not in custody Wednesday evening.

    Guthrie said at about 5:15 p.m., three male suspects arrived at the home on Marshall Mill Road, off of U.S. 501 near Gladys, and approached an elderly male resident outside the house.

    The suspects, Guthrie said, claimed they were taking a survey for a school system, and one carried on a conversation with the resident, distracting him so the other two could enter the house.

    Once inside, Guthrie said, the two other suspects gagged the man’s wife, forcing her into the house’s bathroom while they rummaged through the house.

    The suspects fled the scene in a white Chevrolet pickup, Guthrie said.

    Later Tuesday evening, an Appomattox County deputy noticed the truck on Red House Road (Virginia 727), Guthrie said, but the subjects had fled on foot, leaving the truck running.

    Officials searched the area, even using the state’s Med-flight III helicopter, Guthrie said.

    The sheriff’s office received a report that the suspects had been picked up and taken from the scene in a white vehicle, Guthrie said.

    The investigation led to officials obtaining the warrant for Collier, charging him with robbery and abduction, Guthrie said.

    He said officials have identified a second suspect, but no warrant had been issued Wednesday evening.

    In March, another elderly couple was bound and robbed at their home north of Rustburg, off of U.S. 501.

    Christopher Bryant Nowlin and Delphine Yvonne Scott, of Gladys, were charged in that incident.

    Charges have been filed against a Lynchburg man in connection with a home invasion in Campbell County last week where a woman was gagged while her home was ransacked.

    Warrants have been obtained for Jeffrey Dejuan Page, 39, said Capt. L.T. Guthrie. He is not in custody. Neither is Donald Eugene Collier III, 18, of Appomattox, who also faces charges in the crime.

    Page is wanted on charges of malicious wounding, abduction and robbery; Collier on charges of robbery and abduction, Guthrie said.

    Around 5:15 p.m. on Aug. 25, three men approached an elderly man outside his house on Marshall Mill Road, off U.S. 501 near Gladys.

    The three men claimed they were taking a survey for the school system, Guthrie said. While one distracted the man with conversation, the other two entered the house, gagged the man’s wife and forced her into a bathroom while they rummaged though the house, Guthrie said.

    They left the scene in a white Chevrolet pickup, Guthrie said.

    Later that evening, an Appomattox County deputy noticed a truck matching that description on Red House Road, Guthrie said, but the subjects ran, leaving the truck running. They reportedly had been picked up in a white vehicle, Guthrie said.

    Anyone with information on the crime or the whereabouts of Collier or Page is asked to call the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office at (434) 332-9574 or Central Virginia Crimestoppers at (888) 798-5900.

    I'm remembering a great story I heard about an old lady in New York City. She was sitting in her wheel chair when this guy comes along and crabs her person. She pulled a .357 mag from under her shawl and blew his arm almost off. I'm for arming old ladies.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.
