South Boston convicted felon facing gun charges

A 51-year-old former construction worker at the new South Boston Energy Power Plant on Plywood Trail faces three felony and one misdemeanor firearm charges after he allegedly brandished a firearm at one of the workers in the parking lot at the site Friday evening.

According to Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Steve M. Cassada, Charles W. Fields Jr. reportedly had been fired from the construction site before the alleged incident occurred.

When a warrant was obtained against Fields for brandishing a firearm, authorities discovered Fields was a convicted felon, and another warrant was obtained against him for possessing a firearm after being a convicted felon, Cassada said.

On Sunday, Sgt. Craig Spencer tracked Fields to a local motel on Philpott Road near South Boston where he and three other deputies took him into custody.

At the time of his arrest, Fields was in possession of two handguns, one that had been reported stolen in Tazewell County.

Fields was also charged with possession of the second firearm after having been a convicted felon and possession of a stolen firearm.

Spencer served some of the warrants Sunday, and Deputy C. A. Bates V served the others Monday.

Fields listed his address as Berry Hill Road, South Boston, Cassada said.
