SoBo man charged in vandalism, burglaries

A 56-year-old South Boston man faces five felony and two misdemeanor charges stemming from recent vandalism and burglaries at the Double Bubbles carwash on Old Halifax Road at Love Shop.

David A. Rose was arrested on one felony charge of possessing burglary tools, two felony counts of grand larceny, two felony counts of destruction of property and two misdemeanor charges for tampering with or attempting to steal from a coin machine, according to Cpl. M. W. Bowen of the South Boston Police Department.

Bowen said the Double Bubbles car wash was vandalized Friday and sustained heavy property damage.

While investigating officer F. A. Powell was following up on leads related to the vandalism, Bowen said the business was burglarized Saturday night, with four bays being broken into.

An undisclosed amount of money was taken in the burglary, and property damage was estimated in excess of $14,000, Bowen said.

Officer Powell, along with Officer T. W. Bush, worked leads on the burglary and vandalism and obtained warrants for Rose on Saturday.

A be-on-the-lookout was issued for Rose, and Cpl. Bowen located the suspect driving in the Westside area. He conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and held Rose until Powell arrived to serve the felony and misdemeanor warrants.

Following his arrest, Rose was transported to Blue Ridge Regional Jail where he is being held with no bond, Bowen said.
