What’s sad is when a Judge lets one go on bail and they disappear AGAIN. Try having your home broken into twice by the same ones, 8k tools and jewelry and items stolen. Three years later I’m still waiting for justice. But like I said took a year to catch one of them Judge let her go. Known heroine addict with felonies even. Let go... let that sink in. Oh and you don’t want to go to court about it, even when judge calls recess you ask the so called city attorney if he needed to talk to you and have a bailiff run up to you stinking his finger in your face yelling at you to never do that again. Do what? Guess it was asking our city attorney one question while court was in recess. Lots of luck with catching the thieves.
Thank You for the Information 👍 You do a Great Job 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Why would anyone steal from them? This is a great store, especially for those on food stamps! I always thank God for them. Single parents are so grateful for them! That's really low,she should have just told them her plight and they probably would have given it to her.
Never heard of the store but I’m sure she’ll do it again. Just tell the store to grab the plate number the next time she drives off if anyone notices her. 👍🏻 thanks for your hard work Winchester 🇺🇸
So It’s been brought to my attention that Kayla Nicole posted that this is me. 1st off I don’t steal, 2nd I don’t wear Washington Nationals, 3rd I have very visible arm tattoos and a diamond necklace that NEVER leaves my neck! I’d appreciate anymore comments by her be sent directly to me as I’ve already taken one person to court for internet slander and I will do the same to her as this is an ongoing issue with her. It’s a shame she couldn’t keep her boyfriend happy so he left her and shes butthurt since him and I are together just had a baby and planning a wedding. Since she can’t grow up and chooses to keep posting about me everywhere I’ll be filing court papers on her as well.
t’s really sad that someone would steal from sharp shopper but then again we don’t know their story. Times are hard for some people and someone’s receiving assistance is almost impossible for those that need it. I pray this lady gets the help she needs to prevent this from happening again.
Man I wish stores would invest in better cameras. I hate theives and would love to help catch one but man I can take better pics with my cell phone
But nobody know that girls story on why she done y’all people are quick to judge someone I pray she gets the help she need and gods fixes the reason she is stealing
You have a not so good image then take a picture of it with a phone or camera. Can't you all load the original?
You have to be the bottom of the barrel of bottom feeders to steal from Sharp Shopper.
Looks like Sammy Jo.... but then again she gets too many food stamps to have to steal 🤷🏼♀️
I’m laughing so hard 😂😂😂😂 what a clown
Wowwww.. Really? Thats like stealing from the Dollar Tree!
One of the cheapest stores around..SHAME ON YOU
See they even use cheap cameras !
Not bad. Go Nats 😉
Sharp shoppers seriously smh
She looks like two ppl I've met since over been out here...but doult it was then
“Internet slander” like the police department didn’t post this for the communities help 🤦🏼♀️ that’s what crack does to ya kids 😂

That means school buses will once again become part of your morning and afternoon commutes - let's keep our school bus stops safe by observing the law and stopping every time you see the school bus lights, stop sign, and stop arm activated. If you don't stop for those lights, you risk seeing our police lights - or even worse, ambulance lights. 🚨

I'm not ready for my kids to go back to school but they need their education that's the important part. I hope everyone has a wonderful year. Also thank you Winchester police department for everything yall do for our community. Also I try to let people know you can share pictures of your kids in their awesome school outfit just dont show what school their going to theirs way to many predators out their that are sick in the head.
Thank you so very much for what you do to keep our children safe
Yes be very careful
A few years ago my child was almost hit by someone who chose to drive right through a school bus stop (with the sign out and everything). It was horrifying. I’m even more surprised that the buses don’t have exterior cameras to catch the people who break these laws. So important to follow the laws regarding school buses!!
Good grief that's early. Poor kids.
Hey Terry E Orndorff. Tell her to come sit on Green. She could write tickets ALL day long. Morning and afternoon. Cars pass the stopped bus sign at least 3x a week, just at van fossen and green. The kids bus driver said it happens to her constantly!

Re: Estate of D'Londre Minifield v. City of Winchester
UPDATE 11-29-19 @9:37PM
Chief Judge Urbanksi in the US DISTRICT COURT in the Western District of Virginia DENIES THE CITY OF WINCHESTER'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT TODAY AND REOPENS DISCOVERY FOR 6 MORE MONTHS.... SEE ORDER ATTACHED HERE
Breaking: New INFORMATION in the Minifield Police Homicide civil rights case filed in US district federal court (i.e., which occured on 2-28-16 near Orchard Crest Apartments) demonstrates Dlondre Minifield did not shoot himself in the back of his head and that he was not lying face down on the ground when the fatal shot was fired contrary to the statements by Winchester police officers and the City Administration.
Indeed sworn testimony was entered into the record this week during ongoing litigation which supports that 1) DLondre Minifield was hanging over a 6ft fence after he was shot; and 2) that one of Minifields legs became snagged in the fence hindering police officers from being able to pull the lifeless body off the fence "after" he had been shot and killed.
The police officers maintained Minifield jumped on the ground face down after being chased by Officer Chris Ivins and then field trainee Stephanie Sills. They say Minifield refused to comply with commands from officers at which time Minifield purportedly turned his head to the left and placed a 38 caliber revolver behind his right ear and pulled the trigger. However, the disinterested eye witnesses testified under oath that he was not shot on the ground but instead while climbing a 6ft fence and that Minifield hung from the fence lifeless after a police officer discharged their firearm.
This supports the Estates position that a pervasive conspiracy by the Winchester Police Dept police officers and other agencies and officers to cover up the identity of the police officer who shot Minifield in the back of his head existed and is still ongoing.
And most likely that Officers coordinated this dubious scheme with one another and local/state agency top officials and several local businesses/individuals before they planted a 38 Snub Nose Police Chief bull dog revolver under Minifields body and tampered/altered the wound site on decedent's head. Counsel for the City of Winchester stated none of the 10 police cruisers which were involved in the incident were equipped with dashcams during the chase and shooting death of DLondre Minifield.
Additionally WPD police officers intentionally drafted false police reports and voluminous PRESS RELEASES which incorporated knowingly false statements by the officers involved who reported D'Londre Minifield was the individual with a gun during a fight 1/2 mile away from where Minifield was discovered by officers. Officer Stephanie Sills may have perjured herself last week when she swore under oath that Minifield shot and killed himself while lying face down on the ground; when apparently the un-corroborating witnesses' testimony clearly showed that Sills most likely knew Minifield [did not] commit suicide.
Sanzenbacher's sudden departure(soon after Minifields Estate filed its Notice of Claim) is a strong indicator the municipality also had affirmative knowledge of the wrongful conduct and forced the former chief of police out of the Winchester Police Dept to control the damage and further hide/obfuscate the events which are most likely blemishing the City of Winchester's and its Administration's credibility, judgment, morality and municiple ethics.
Further -- and specifically -- Former Chief of Police Kevin Sanzenbacher, current Major Kelly Rice, Former City Attorney Tony Williams and current City Manager Eden Freeman for the City of Winchester and no less than eight (8) WPD police officers, (3) Frederick County Sheriffs deputies and others should be placed under indictment by a federal grand jury. Or at the very least a Special Grand Jury should be convened to investigate the City of Winchester and the police officers involved.
If you live in the City of Winchester contact your city councilman and the Mayor. Demand accountability!! All of these individuals should be termimated if they havent been yet.
THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE LARGEST AND MOST PERVASIVE MULTI JURISDICTIONAL, MULTI-AGENCY POLICE HOMICIDE COVERUP IN MODERN HISTORY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA.

I seen them these two that are pictured at Ranson Home Depot Thur afternoon. They were outside in lawn & garden when I pulled up. They had long sleeves on and a hoodie on and it was hot! I immediately recognize them from this Facebook post. These two waited for a huge tall white male to come out and he pulled something out of this clothes and gave it to the black guy. Then all 3 ran and got into a dark blue Chevy Colbolt car WV tags ending in 211. The police were on their way I tried to block them but they threw it in reverse and bolted threw the parking lot. The car had more people in it too. Hope they get the help they need.
I’m sure the police would rather see comments that would lead to an arrest.
Some of you are very sick minded to say the things that are being said here. May your kids or family members ever have to hear such bullying from others, because KARMA does strike back.
May the officers bring them both to justice♥️.

Press release from our colleagues at the Northern Shenandoah Valley Substance Abuse Coalition: ___________________________________________________
Increase Reported in Drug Overdoses: Task Force reports spike in overdoses over the past week
WINCHESTER – Seven drug overdoses have been reported by the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug and Gang Task Force in the past week and two of the individuals who suffered an overdose, lost their lives. The Northern Shenandoah Valley Substance Abuse Coalition (NSVSAC) wants to bring awareness to these latest overdoses in hopes of preventing anyone else from dying.
The most recent overdose death happened on Wednesday, July 17th in Frederick County. On Sunday, July 14th, an individual died in Clarke County. The five non-fatal overdoses happened in Winchester (2), Frederick County (2), and Shenandoah County (1). The latest overdoses bring the total number of deaths in 2019 to 20 and the total number of non-fatal overdoses to 75.
The NSVSAC is asking the public to share the latest overdose alert with others in an effort to bring awareness. It is encouraged that family members and friends of individuals who use opioids or heroin obtain NARCAN, a medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose and saves lives. The next REVIVE! training will be held on August 5, 2019 from 10 a.m. – Noon at Shenandoah University, Brandt Student Center, Room Number 118. To register go to www.surveymonkey.com/r/NH2K73G. Attendees of the REVIVE! training will receive NARCAN for free. NARCAN can also be picked up at any of the Lord Fairfax Health District Health Departments. Please call to schedule a short training and to receive the medication. For a complete list of the offices go to www.roadtorecovery.info.
Spikes in overdoses haven’t been detected locally during the summer months. This latest increase further emphasizes the need for individuals who are living with addiction to seek treatment. Individuals who are living in recovery are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to speak with over the phone, by calling Northwestern Community Services’ Peer2Peer Regional Warm Line at 1-833-626-1490. Northwestern Community Services also has a Peer Recovery Center located at 1014 Amherst Street, Winchester. The Peer Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Thank goodness! This has become a serious problem in Winchester. Besides the safety issue it presents when drivers block intersections and ignore traffic signals because they are interacting with pan handlers, this also contributes to funding illegal activities.
Thank you 😊
I couldn't hear any of this & my media/phone was on MAX. Very annoying.
With that written, any time you can truly help a person in crisis & the community at large, it's a good day.
I am glad.
Thank you Winchester City Council
I'm glad they did this!!
It about time at the dollar store i had them come right to my truck while i was putting my bags in the truck wanted money
I have never seen them in Winchester.
About time !
Took long enough
Alisha Lotz, no more annoying people standing around off 81 and in Winchester!
This will get challenged in the courts 😕. As annoying as panhandling is, it has been judge to be protected speech.
If you don't like panhandlers, banning the action is not going to accomplish much. Instead, why is no one trying to manage the root problems of homelessness? A problem like this is not solved with a simple solution.

The number of comments on this thread that are based on misconceptions is staggering. I would like to applaud Virginia for passing a law based on crash tests and scientific studies regarding how to safely transport small children. I urge anyone who doesn't understand this law to do some REAL research on neck development and child/car safety. Rear-facing is safer. End of story. Btw, kids don't care if their legs are bent. My son didn't, nor did any of his friends. PLEASE do your research to understand why this law has gone into effect.
Winchester PD Thank you all for your service be safe out there keep up the good work
It would be nice if the picture showed proper use considering you're a police department. Straps have to be at or below the shoulders for rear-facing, not above as pictured here. Also, either this is a foreign seat and not legal in the US or the chest clip is way too low. I know you have certified CPSTs, I took the class with them several years ago. Disappointed to see you don't utilize them for posts like this.
I don't know how we survived the 50's and 60's..then again we rode in tanks and the backs of pickup trucks.
That poor kid looks so uncomfortable. He is way to tall to be rear facing. I dont agree with this new law.
That is a very tall under 2 year old.
That boy is for sure over two. But the parents can decide if want to continue rear facing after 2 or weight. My son is 3 and still rear facing. Before i had a child i saw a man with his son like this one so i asked why, hes legs looked tight and he told me he worked in the ER department at the hospital and had seen many kids come in from tragic accidents that could have had a better outcome if were just rear facing. The back of the car seat will hit first, not your child.
U see how bunched up the child’s legs are, it’s super crazy, Andy’s my child was that young still no way I would cramp him up like that in a car, especially if going traveling for hours, they are out of there minds, and u see u don’t even have straps right in the picture, why would u post a picture trying to give correct info when that child isn’t even buckled in right. #Fixthestraps
The bigger boys feet are curled up
He has no room to stretch - he’s too tall
I think this is crazy.
That poor baby don't look too safe to me
That doesn't look safe or comfortable.
Exactly as that little boy is sitting his legs are all bent up not good for a child’s circulation if riding for a period of time
whats the weight limit
In a car accident wouldn’t a taller child like this possibly end up with severe damage to legs due to lack of space?
Ok well i do not like this new law. I find it stupid. The kid in the picture is to tall. Not to mention how is the driver or passanger suppost to be comfortable on a car ride. I dont see how this would be safer if the kid gets broken legs from being folded in half.
