Why CALEA? Va has a accreditation authority that is tailored for Va Police Officers, Va Agencies, and Va laws? Has something changed with CALEA where they are more in line with Va police practices, standards, and laws? Not necessarily a complaint, I just dont understand this move when many member agencies are accredited thru the Va Commission.

Thank you Brownie Troop 1147 for thinking about the men and women of the Waynesboro Police Department for your "Celebrating Community" merit badge. We greatly appreciate the cookies and wish you all a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success. ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks Chief and staff!

We were honored to participate in the annual Law Enforcement Special Olympics Torch Run yesterday. We received the torch at the Waynesboro City limits on West Main Street, traveled through downtown Waynesboro and then made the steep trek up to the top of Afton Mountain.

Joint Press Release Waynesboro Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and The Waynesboro Police Department

Earlier today the Waynesboro Circuit Court Grand Jury issued a true bill of indictment charging Shawn Preston Jones, Age 42, with the First Degree Murder of Deborah Allen. The charges stem from an alleged incident that took place in the early morning hours of April 6, 2019 at the Royal Inn Motel located on West Main Street in Waynesboro.

First Degree Murder is a Class 2 Felony and is punishable by imprisonment in the state penitentiary for a period of 20 years to Life. Due to the newly issued 1st Degree Murder indictment, earlier charges filed in the Waynesboro Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court charging Mr. Jones with 2nd Degree Murder in connection with Ms. Allen’s death will be dismissed by that Court.

Mr. Jones will next appear in the Waynesboro Circuit Court on Wednesday May 29, 2019. Trial in this case is expected to take place in late September 2019.

So glad. What a piece of crap. Hope they give him everything they possibly can.

Did the unrecognized person get a haircut or something?

Must not have attended very often if noone recognized them.

Hard to believe one wouldn't be recognized as a student pretty quickly. In any event, with the construction and activity around the school, best to be prudent.

I agree with you must be absent alot!!

Must be a new student

Allison, Julia, which one of you was it? 😂😂😂

Probably Jacob Craig 😂😂😂😂 Jeffrey Campbell

Was it a black male with a back pack? I did see him goofing around the road right before the school and he kept laughing and pointing and acting a little bizarre. I didn’t think nothing of it because you know it’s Waynesboro haha

Wow. I went to school with him. Didnt know he was weird until he kept harassing a friend of mine wife at Mohawk

BV Peeps: I recall two Brad Carters. One was slim and put pale colors in his hair. The other had a sis named Brandy whom he favored: blonde, a little stocky. They lived a few blocks from Enderly. Can one of you get me straightened out? I know at least ONE of you knows why I am confused! Thanks in advance.

"Your driving time is not your down time." THANK YOU. People really don't take driving seriously enough anymore. And with more and more safety features and options that remove people from the attention they need to operate a vehicle, I don't see it getting any better. "I don't need to worry about people in my blind spot... there's a sensor/light/beep for that." "I can go 20 over the speed limit. It's a new car with new brakes!" "The lane assist will keep me between the lines so I only need to pay attention around exits and heavy traffic."

DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE!!!!!!

As a surveyor who works on road construction sites, it's nothing less than terrifying what you'll see people doing other than safely operating their vehicle. I've seen people completely ignore barrels, road closed sights, flagmen holding STOP signs, and flashing lights. It would be REALLY nice if we could get local law enforcement to monitor our work areas and reduce the number of distracted drivers that have a very good chance at killing us.

Update: Pedestrian Struck by a Train

Preliminary investigation of this incident indicates that the male who was struck by the train Sunday afternoon in Waynesboro was lying on the tracks when first observed by the train crew after coming out of the curve traveling westbound at the Florence Avenue Bridge. The crew immediately sounded the horn and attempted to stop the train but was unable to do so prior to striking the victim.

The victim has been identified as 32 year old Taylor Dalton Stevens of Waynesboro and the case remains active pending autopsy results.

We always played on the train tracks when we were kids. The train crew has to emotionally upset. 2 in one day. It's a very sad situation. Prayers for everyone.

RIP my friend... 😪😪😪

So sad prayers for both families.

So sad that his pain was greater than death!

Prayers are with all involved if it was suicide thats sad he didnt feel he could talk and took it this level we will never know..but suicide and depression is no joke its a deep dark hole my stepdad walked out n traffic commited suicide i never saw the signs ask people how are they feeling sometimes just caring is a meaniful thing again my prayers are with everyone involved in 2days wboro lost 3 lives 1 on motorcycle 2 by train tomorrow is not promised

My heart goes out to that train crew 😢

Why people gotta be so nasty he has family and friends that read these rude comments. Please have respect and not post rude comments. He’s a very good young man

,prayers for both families of the men who are now deceased And prayers for the crew on the train that day; as well as, all rescue personnel.

Rest In Peace Taylor 😞

As a kid I used to cross those tracks right there to go to roses to buy baseball cards, and play in tunnel beside roses.

What a shame

Sad

Why are people on the train tracks anyways?

Hmmmm was he already dead who lays on the tracks.???

highly strange around the same age and same train and same day ??? was this planned ? do they know each other ?

The thing is, is that you can feel the vibration from a train coming. So either they weren't paying attention or they wanted to be hit. Just saying. Sad either way. And praying for the families. Breaks my heart.

I saw 2 young men walking in the middle of the tracks near Hopeman West apts. and thought how dumb. Those things are moving on. Too late once you hear it.

I can remember walking the tracks with my dad as a kid. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Not so much now.

Not trying to sound disrespectful but don’t people know it’s unsafe to walk the trains? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😢 prayers for the family and friends.

OMG.....THAT's how my angel got killed😩😥😢😩😥😢😩💔💔💔💔💔💔💔

So very sad Brittney Needham 😥

Someone was hit in Crozet as well at approximately noonish. Was it the same train hitting two people within 15/20 miles of each other?

I wonder... what if we exchanged "thoughts and prayers" for: -Not using cell phones when driving. -Operating your vehicle at a safe speed. -Following all signs and traffic lights. -Not tailgating. -Being aware of your roadway position and not driving in someone's blind spot. -Looking both ways before pulling into traffic, then look again. Maybe if we did all those things, we wouldn't have to type out "thoughts and prayers" and pretend like we're making a difference. And then perhaps, just perhaps, we would see less terrible accidents that are preventable by simply paying attention. Thoughts and prayers don't work. Changes in driving behavior do.

It’s that time of the year , pay extra attention and watch out for bikers Prayers for all the families.

I am very happy to see Waynesboro Police cleaning up the methamphetamine disaster that has infected this area for so long...Keeping the Penalties Severe is also Great to see...why give him bond? cut him a deal to roll on the other walking dead meth heads...and put him in a penatentiary where he will never have to see them...that's a little more upscale than MRRJ...that would be ANYWHERE.

Good job police force get them off the street

I cant believe that some people are trying to make Medina a victim. Please. He victimized. Period

Went to school with this dude, that's crazy.

Some of you never took a microeconomics class. It’s all about supply and demand. The day people stop buying there will be nothing to sell. The people buying it know it’ll destroy their lives so they can’t be but so innocent.

Did any of you first judge the officers for making the arrest on this young man?? He was in possession of the drugs, now how is that judging?? I didnt see anybody judge him on a personal basis, it was about what he had in his possession and what he was about to do with it. So when people say dont judge, it sounds like you are saying dont hold him accountable. The one you dont want him to judge him is God and the judge. There are laws in place so that people cannot do what they want to do, when they want to do it. Your conscience should be your first judge not to do something illegal. But since the conscience says to do it, then the law steps in and lets you know, this is the wrong, you broke the law, and you are going to jail. So the perpetrators become the first judge, then the law and then society judges what this man did was illegal according to the laws on the books. Accountability is replaced by don't judge. If any of us in society was the JUDGE, WOE UNTO The people. Be glad we are not the JUDGE and jury. Be very glad, and fear the one that you will have to stand before.

Adrian! Why?? What happened to you?? What happened to working on cars and being a good dude?

Come on people if he has that amount of meth do you think he could not raise $5000!!! Why does he have a bond? It just keeps going and going!! Shelby Burnett... what a piece !! If there was not a problem around here people like this would not have a job!!! Lol I know he don’t know how to work a 9-5 like NORMAL PEOPLE!! Special place for this type ...

keep up the good work, stay safe

Courtney Randozzo is this the guy you know?

The problem with just about everyone today is they believe their ACTIONS have no CONSEQUENCES. It's only a matter of time. Y'all just wait, there will be another bust because he isn't going down alone by looking at that bond. #GetEmAll

Awesome job WPD!! Thank you for working hard to make our community cleaner and better for the future!

You guys are doing a fantastic job. I wish the the other counties and cities would get on board with the program.Keep up the good work & stay safe. Thank You.

The Waynesboro Police Department investigated a 7-vehicle crash that occurred at approximately 3:00 pm in the 900 block of West Main Street.

The investigation showed that a 2017 Jaguar SUV, operated by an 85-year-old male, a resident of Fincastle, VA was traveling east in the 900 block of West Main Street. The male driver suffered from a medical emergency and struck four parked vehicles on the right side of the roadway and became stuck between parked cars and the wall located at the initial crash site.

The Jaguar became dislodged and accelerated at a high rate of speed east on West Main Street traveling over the double yellow line into the westbound lane striking a 2018 Chevrolet SUV driven by a 66-year-old female. The collision did not stop the Jaguar; it continued and hit a staged fire engine parked on the right side of the westbound lane. The fire engine had responded to the initial crash call and was occupied by two firemen when it was struck.

The male driver and one fireman were transported to Augusta Health with injuries.

The male driver was not charged in the crash investigation.

The 2017 Jaguar, as well as the 2018 Chevrolet, were both totaled. The other vehicles involved in the collision received repairable damage.

AFTER the first accident, ...The Jaguar became dislodged and accelerated at a high rate of speed east on West Main Street traveling over the double yellow line into the westbound lane striking a 2018 Chevrolet SUV driven by a 66-year-old female. The collision did not stop the Jaguar; it continued and hit a staged fire engine parked on the right side of the westbound lane.//////// so, The fire engine had responded to the initial crash ??????? the fire dept was called, responded, parked the truck and 'staged', the Jaguar, still running engine?????? dislodges????? hits another vehicle, then hits the fire engine????.... isnt there something WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE ????

Scary. So glad it was not worse. Prayers for those sent to hospital.

JOINT PRESS RELEASE
WAYNESBORO COMMONWEALTH’S ATTORNEY’S OFFICE AND
WAYNESBORO POLICE DEPARTMENT

The Waynesboro Police Department was dispatched Saturday afternoon to the scene of an apparent homicide near Lowes. Evidence retrieved at the crime scene and statements made by the suspect appeared consistent with death due to a violent assault. Based on these observations, the Police Department arrested a suspect, Douglas John Lepera, and charged him with Second Degree Murder.

Based on preliminary autopsy results received Monday morning the Waynesboro Police Department and Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office are withdrawing the Second Degree Murder Charges against Douglas John Lepera. The state medical examiner was unable to determine an apparent cause of death, and therefore the Police Department and Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office have concluded there is currently insufficient evidence to sustain a charge of Second Degree Murder, pending a full autopsy report with toxicology screening.

Once the final autopsy results are received, additional charges against Lepera may be forthcoming. Mr. Lepera continues to be held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail on an unrelated outstanding bench warrant from the Waynesboro General District Court.

The case remains active and anyone with additional information is asked to call the Waynesboro Police Department at (540) 942-6675 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 332-2017.

Maybe because they are homeless and no one cares

Sounds to me like there may be a lawsuit ...should had everything in place before charge with second degree murder and defamation of character if you already had him on another charge stick with that till evidence showed 1 way or the other

Missy Stinespring Miller

Wow look at all the lawyers on this post.

Update:
Investigators have completed their work at the scene of this incident in the woods adjacent to Lowes, and have determined the death is a homicide due to the presence of evidence consistent with an assault.

The female victim has been positively identified as 41 year old Sarah Elizabeth Conner of Waynesboro. Her body will be sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Roanoke for an autopsy. Her next of kin has been notified.

The initial responding officers to this scene, which is best described as a campsite used by the homeless, found and detained a man in the immediate vicinity of Ms. Conner’s body. He was arrested at that time due to an outstanding warrant for Failure to Appear in Waynesboro General District Court.

After further investigation, this man, Douglas John Lepera, 52 and a Waynesboro resident, has been charged with 2nd Degree Murder in Ms. Conner’s Death. Mr. Lepera is currently being held at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.

This case remains active as investigators continue to gather information and process evidence. Anyone with additional information about this crime is asked to call the Waynesboro Police Department at 540-942-6675 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-322-2017.

What type of restitution will the Waynesboro Police Department provide for defaming & falsely accusing this citizen?

How does a guy with an outstanding warrant that apparently everyone in town knows panhandles isn't picked up by the Waynesboro Police Department prior to this??

I thought Charles Manson died.

Handsome fella

Homeless or not murder is a crime...Goodness let's not worry about this guy let's worry about a woman that was murdered...

U go girl,I agree with e everything u said

This is what happens when ask someone for something ppl need to learn that lesson so high up

Ethan Duncan

Look, hate me if you will, but I hope to God THOROUGH police work is condamned here. I'd hate for a homeless man whose obviously down on luck get charged with murder and hope the actual killer, whoever it be, be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law with no breaks or deals! Please dont assume just because hes homeless he did this without proper evidence!

Well done, WPD. Thank you for your service.

Prayers for her family 🙏. Thank you WP. for your quick and hard work. Especially in the rain! Prayers for all Waynesboro officers for safety on duty.

This is horrible in our back yard. We should not have homeless people with all the money we give away

This is horrible and the fact that some are taking the time to speak so horrible about homeless people is beyond me! They’re someone’s family and keep being so judgmental all it takes is for one bad circumstance and You could end up in the same position! Never think you’re above or better then anyone else because one turn of Karma and it could be you! R.I.P young lady!! Smh the people on the world we live in sad to think this is what the world has turn to!!

The city of waynesboro has been far to lenient with these homeless people begging on corners and look what happend.. one of them killed someone. This blame rests on the city

If she had a family that truly cared or friends why is she homeless behind Lowe’s. It’s sad and heartbreaking. My heart goes out to her and the people who loved her. Prayers to all for your loss.

Darnell Shull Sheets

I think Skynet sent this guy from the future.....Only some of you will get that.

🤔 No mention of physical evidence. Just that he was in the vicinity of a well used homeless encampment? I anticipate a dismissal in the near future

That man i know very well he would not have done that to her i put my life on that

Prayers for the family sorry about your loss

Victoria Porter

Prayers her family and friends 🙏

Update on Speedy's Food Mart Investigation:

The Waynesboro Police department has recovered very clear video footage from the in-store security camera system as well as additional footage from security cameras located outside of an adjacent building. Still photos have been developed from this footage that are being released to the public. We believe this will help to identify the perpetrators of this brazen and potentially dangerous crime. It is clear from the footage recovered that both suspects were armed and displaying firearms in a menacing manner as they burst into the store only to find that the lone clerk was not immediately present in the retail area. After briefly looking for the clerk, suspect #2 removes the cash register and then both suspects quickly leave the store. The still photos captured from the adjacent exterior camera shows a vehicle arriving and then quickly departing during the precise time of the incident.

We ask that anyone who recognizes the suspects or articles of clothing/apparel they were wearing, or the vehicle they arrived and fled in, to contact police as soon as possible.

Callers may contact the Waynesboro Police Department at 540-942-6675 or Crime Stoppers at 800-322-2017.

We used to not have to worry times have changed its greed its sad why go to jail for a dollar

People are soooooo naive watching these FAKE videos!

Welcome to Ed Kennedy's world of falsified disabilities claims of NASTY janitors & bartenders in beer bong! JERK

Surveillance used for real criminals are much more effective than targeting good citizens for budget quotos for corrupted city cops & FIREMEN....coughing📷📷📷

Edward MOORE Kennedy.... LOSERS from Massachusetts

Been wanting all my late fees they charged me back in the day. Lol

It's a shame some one wasn't in with a shotgun and took both of them out

Good camera too bad they were disguised so well!!

First off it shouldn’t be just one employee in the store. Second one of them look like a woman.

somebody for recognizes this two and their car. please speak up

So sad to see people ruin their lives and our city with this criminal activity!

Very clear footage that shows clearly no proof or clue who they are 😂

Go get them WPD!

I sure hope they catch these idiots.

I agree with Sara Thompson Liskey that cameras should be at face level. These are scum little boys.

You can get the gloves at harbor freight e&m unless they get lucky the way they are covered up it's gonna be hard to find them

WPD Special Operations Division and JADE Task Force Raid Local Hotel Room and Encounter Armed Juvenile

January 24, 2019

On January 23, 2019, members of the Waynesboro Police Department Special Operations Division and the Virginia State Police Jefferson Area Drug Task Force (JADE) executed a joint narcotics search warrant at a hotel in the 2000 block of Rosser Avenue in the City of Waynesboro, VA. As the raid team approached the hotel room, a male, later determined to be a 15 year old, ran from the room and ignored police commands to stop. Two Albemarle County Narcotics Detectives, both members of the JADE Drug Task Force, gave chase. As the juvenile ran from the officers, he drew a 9mm handgun from his waistband and continually brandished it during the chase. After several hundred yards, as the detectives closed in on him, the juvenile first threw the gun near Rosser Avenue and then took off a backpack that he was carrying and discarded it. He was soon thereafter apprehended by the detectives.

Inside the backpack, police recovered 50 grams of methamphetamine (with a street value of approximately $5,000) and additional 9mm ammunition. The 9mm handgun that was recovered had an obliterated serial number so police believe it may be stolen. Police also recovered $3,500 in cash from one of the juvenile’s pockets.

The juvenile, who admitted to having just smoked methamphetamine prior to the incident, was transported to Augusta Medical Center for treatment for injuries sustained during the foot pursuit. He was treated and released to police custody. He is currently being held on a juvenile detention order at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Detention Center. He is charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a firearm while in possession of a Schedule II drug, underage possession of a handgun and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.

Additional drug paraphernalia and a half ounce of marijuana were also recovered from the motel room during the ensuing search.

More arrests are pending.
