No questions will be asked, and no charges will be filed if the person or persons responsible for stealing a jon boat last Friday night return it.
Halifax County Historical Society President Barbara Bass said she will not ask any questions if the jon boat that had been scheduled to be used in the Crossing of the Dan commemoration activities last weekend is returned to the parking lot of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center or in front of The Prizery.
“I am truly disappointed that a person or persons would take a boat that was brought here to be used at a historic commemoration of the Crossing of the Dan. A re-enactor from another state was allowing its use during the weekend, and it was placed in the wooded area between Route 58 and the Dan River, east of Lawson Creek. I am asking whoever took the boat to please return it, “ Bass said Thursday afternoon.
If the boat is not returned, the historical society president said other actions will be taken.
