Suspect back in jail after violation

A 34-year-old Halifax man accused of burglary with felony intent was taken into police custody early Wednesday morning after violating the terms of his bond.

Michael Ryan Waddle of 1055 Dan River Church Road was released Monday on a $10,000 secured bond following his arrest on one count of breaking and entering the home of Kimberly P. Hunt on Fenton Street on Saturday night.

According to South Boston Police Capt. B. K. Lovelace, Waddle was picked up by county deputies and issued a capias for violating the terms of his bond.

Waddle defied a court order barring him from making contact with the victim, Lovelace confirmed.

Waddle is currently in jail without bond awaiting his next hearing.

Waddle was initially arrested by Officer T. D. Clay in the wee morning hours Monday after South Boston Police executed a search warrant at his residence, authorities said. 

Lovelace said the burglary and assault on a hound dog at the Fenton Street residence continues to be an ongoing investigation.

Due to the severe injuries the dog received, it had to be euthanized, Lovelace said. 

Waddle had not been charged in connection with the dog assault as of press time Thursday.
