Hire the homeless or the panhandler to do it. Great job.

It was the Inspections Dept. and some inmates as well.

Pure awesomeness. My cool 13 year old kid Nathan Storey, would of loved to been able to help y'all. He's more then once went down our road with our big trashcan, gloves on, and a jabber thingy picking up litter. โค

That’s is very difficult!!!!! The people don’t respect, they don’t care, my house is behind a shopping center on Berryville ave, I have to be cleaning all time, and the next day again!!!! bags, cans bottles of juices and more....the worst thing !!!!is that they have containers a few feet a way. Sometime I think ๐Ÿค” if I could hang pictures of all those who throw garbage for thee days , I’ll achieve something, Jijij because knowing that they are being recorded doesn’t matter either, they don’t care !!!!! that’s the truth

They need to make CSX keep their property along Kent St. clean.

How come we don't have the inmates doing this

Great job. but they should make the convicts do it, the city has them help do stuff. put them to work if we're paying them to sit in a cell.

My teen is off all week. If you need help I'll bring him over

Right before the bloom? Timing is everything!

Come get the gully on Opequon. It's an eyesore and the weeds are too high for me to venture down there.

Thank you!

NEWS RELEASE

Winchester Police Departmentโ€™s K9 Jax has received donation of body armor

WINCHESTER, VA โ€“ Winchester Police Departmentโ€™s K9 Jax has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.

โ€œK9 Jax and I are very grateful for the donation of the protective vest,โ€ stated Corporal Brittney Kotynski-Neer, Jaxโ€™s handler. โ€œAs an officer who has worked with a K9 partner for more than ten years, I understand the dangers of the missions that these dogs must face, and the protective vests really provide peace of mind.โ€

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c(3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 3,300 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $5.7 million dollars.

The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate.

The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 โ€“ $2,283, and a five-year warranty and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.

Thank you for empowering the parents (who are willing) to address the issue before it becomes a serious issue. Parents can sign for their child to get help up to 18.

Where can I get this and how much are they....... If a child comes back to be positive what is done to help the parents stop the kids from getting more

I know a parent that does random drug tests on he twins since they were in Junior High. They have no idea when it is coming and they tell their friends no when offered because their parent does the testing.

Thank you WPD for keeping us informed.

Praying for friends and family related to this

Thank you WPD For keeping us safe. Prayers going up for all . Sad situation for all.

Prayers to the deceased and the family ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Seems so much is backwards and confusing these days. Why is it that you can't call a duck a duck? We have all heard if it looks like and walks like and quacks like... Why is it that those citizens that uphold the laws and contribute and accept responsibility for their actions can't voice their disapproval of the character of this man? Why is it that those that ho out of their way to look like ducks suddenly get offended when someone points and says look at the duck? Seems those that defend this man care more about how he appears than he did for himself. Sad. Whole situation is sad. It may be true that trying to lead a respectable life is boring and often goes without recognition, but the recognition this man has worked for and is getting for his efforts just reminds me that boring is so much better. Boring offers a much happier and respectful future.

All though i am happy that the family doesnt have to deal with not knowing who the killer is and that he isnt on the streets good job on that wpd ...but did you forget my brother who was murdered last year kinda hard to move on knowing his killer is still out there

Rest in peace mikey, Jesse will miss you for life ๐Ÿ˜ข

So sad my prayers go out to Ann and his kids and family and Friends gone but will truly not Forgotten ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Prayers for everyone involved ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Thank you wpd for your service

How could he do this to a legend glad wpd got him Mikey will be missed

Prayers for all affected by this crime. Kudos to our WPD and Frederick Co. Law enforcement officers.

Thoughts an prayers for all families involved

Prayers to Michael's family. Im so glad they caught him, cause if not someone would have done the same to him. He deserves to rot in prison...R.I.P Michael Harris. Go rest high on that mountain...

Elks on Kent is one of the oldest and still operating lodge around and in the past have been very welcoming to other lodge members.

It wont change until we change! Lets show our children a better way! I pray for peace and healing for everyone involved. Xoxo

R. I. P. Michael Harris no one should take another's person life not for any of us to decide when another time her on earth should end!!!!!!

Getting drunk and acting craz has A lot to do with the shootings .

He the same dude that was at the gas station on berryville ave that has this tool gun and drill in his hand trying to fight a customer at the pump.

This is why I can't be a cop he would be going to the morgue instead of jail .

Good job WPD!

Great job winchester police department for getting him off the streets..

Gang banging POS

My undertanding is he just got out not long ago so maybe should have a fireman maybe not. I bet once everything is done drugs was involved somehow but maybe not

Great job !!!

He is done for that all i am saying

If five agencies showed up evertime someone fired a gun or shot someone in bmore... the cost would be absurd.

I hope the streets get you before you get a chance to draw one single free breathe of air in a prison cell.

Thanks for keeping us safe.

Good job Winchester Police Department. It won't bring back Mikey but the family has closure

Well done WPD, catching this killer! This is the 1st in 2019. Jerry Reed, Jr was murdered in Dec 2018. Historically Winchester has a very low to no murder rate. 2 in 4 months, now It's too many! Heads on a swivel, people. See something, say something. Don't just ignor that feeling that something isn't quite right. We need to let law enforcement know so violent crimes, ANY crimes, can be avoided or at least minimized. Information is key. And that goes both ways...keep yourselves informed. Keep yourself and your family safe.

Top off to our w.p.d. we need to try. And keep our city safe.. and the family that loss there love one can try and fine some. Peace. Our prays go out to you. Keep this murder in jail for life

They will catch him

People.are getting crazy

Good job to all those that worked to apprehend!

Death penalty!!!!!!

Yea, I’m seeing it.

Glad to hear it, one more criminal off the street!!!!!!

Do you ever do a demo or something like "A day in the life of a dispatcher" so H.S. aged kids could see what this job is all about? My daughter says this is what she wants to do and I'd love for her to be able to check it out.

Go ahead Tammy and Michael! โค๏ธ Thank you both!

Winchester Police Departmentโ€™s K9 Axl has received donation of body armor

Winchester Police Departmentโ€™s K9 Axl has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. The vest was sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor.

โ€œAs Axlโ€™s partner, itโ€™s my priority to ensure that he is protected and safe during our missions. I very much appreciate the donation of body armor by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.,โ€ stated Corporal Tom Keller, K9 Axlโ€™s handler.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c(3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 3,300 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $5.7 million dollars.

The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate.

The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 โ€“ $2,283, and a five-year warranty and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.

Walmart must be using their own brand of surveillance cameras

Which Walmart was this?

They need better cameras all that money and this is the best they can do

The one with red bandanna looks like Mama June lmao

I only see empty cards what are they they stealing

Looks like Thelma and Louise put on a few pounds

Too bad they didn’t shoplift a makeover at the salon.

Billion dollar companies use 8bit cameras.

It will cost them more when they are caught than if they had just paid for it. Stupid.

Jon D Ross

Gee, tell us how you really feel....lol

Females? Are you sure about that? Maybe one, but..

For a big company as they are they use the cheapest camera system how are you suppose to identify when you can’t really see the person the owners need to put some money towards better cameras instead of their pockets

I’m sorry but if Walmart knew they were stealing why not stop them then why wait and ask us to do your job? The last time I checked I didn’t get a check and if you think Walmart will lower prices because we help haha that’s funny!

Tara Kees

I feel like i recognize them but can't place them. Maybe one of my customers.... hmmm .im keep an eye out

Twinsday isn't till tomorrow ladies....

Well they are either mother and daughter or sister's. Look so much alike.

sorry for laughing but i offered walmart security services and they turned it down

Those 2 heifers fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch coming down.

Why not just start a “who’s this stealing from Walmart” page?

When you got employees standing around talking and not doing their job this is what happens.

He put the beer in the tote and didn't pay for it?

Kenyada Holland ๐Ÿคฃ

Lily Donlon

Walmart is finally investing in decent cameras...

I know that look. It says "Don't touch my Heine"

Great picture, someone should know him

Smile.....ur on camera ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ“น

Which Walmart ???

Haha nice.

Cashiers are suppose to check them at checkout. On rt 50 Wal-Mart, they had me open my totes. Makes total sense. You can't trust anyone these days.

but the employees cant go hands on with you

His name is Jason Tallman. He is a horrible and nasty person. I use to work with him.

Why was everybody so quick to snitch on this guy ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚ put that man’s whole government, pic and all on here within minutes. โ˜ ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธ I will never commit a crime! You all probably catch me before wpd ๐Ÿ˜‚โ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ this a joke before anybody hops on here with the Merica’ comments, wall this wall that โ˜ ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธ or the protectors of justice ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

All I see is a empty cart.

He took the iPads down from his fb page

Why is the cart bigger than him??

Glad you got him

His name is Jason Tallman

If paranoia had a facial expression, that would be it! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

His cart is empty!!!! Suspected of shoplifting!! No evidence!!! Maybe they can catch him the next time!

Rebecca Lynn Carter

Probably only had two lines open with a thousand people in line, so he walked out. Walmart doesn’t pay taxes on millions of dollars, so let that man be free..

Tallman?!?! How ironic considering he can ALMOST see over the handle๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Is this a day camp or overnight?

If my child participated as a camper; however last year was their last year to participate, when can he apply to be an intern? He is turning 14, July 1st. He loved camp and is looking forward to when he can be a part of it, again.

How do you sign kids up for the camp?

Awesome!

Omg!!! Do we have any updates. Def saying prayer for her and her family. I know this family very well. Jason Breeden did you see this, bro?

She just posted on FB yesterday that she was fine just getting her life together...

This is my sister. We need to find her. Please help us. Thank you!

How long she been missing?

Omg...crazy seeing this first thing...where was she last?

Prayers that they find her soon and that she is ok

I shared it from here in Baltimore Maryland hope she is ok and returns home soon Baltimore is not that far away so you never know praying God Bless you all

Seen her at Walmart pleasant valley 2 days ago with her husband and kids

Jessica Capuria

Shared in Berryville. Hope she's found safe

Kimberley Warf I hope you got my message and the two pics I sent you, 1 of her fb pg that's still on my friends list where she changed her name and the pic of her. I also sent it to the WPD

Don't recognize her at all but sure hope she is safe

Look likethe girl Jose had with her. Not a good guy. Jose gomez zasaladabar.

She is still on my friends list, she hasn't posted nothing recently but she has a different name on it. I will send a snap shot of it

John Heminway bolo

Prayers shes ok!

Known to stay in Front Royal? RIP

People you really should private message or call the police directly and not post comments on here. 1-If she is hiding from someone out of fear, some of these comments aren't just helping the police locate her 2-If she is hiding for other reasons, these comments are tipping her off on where not to go and would make it harder for the police to locate her. Just sayin' ๐Ÿค”

So what is the story, missing or not?

Shes ok ive seen her didnt look like she was missing

She sent me a friend request a couple weeks ago. I was in drug court with her

Any update???

She's out, but it seems like she's not missing anyone.

Man arrested for forcible sodomy following reports of indecent exposure. On February 8, 2019, at approximately 8:30 pm., the Winchester Police Department (WPD) responded to three separate incidents of a male exposing himself to females in the 2300 โ€“ 2500 blocks of South Pleasant Valley Road in the City of Winchester. WPD officers located Justin Michael England, 35 years of age, in a parking lot in the 2500 block of Pleasant Valley Road. He was taken into custody without incident.

The investigation into the incidents is still ongoing. England is reported to have exposed his penis to several adult females.

None of the victims were known to England.

England is currently being held without bond at the Northwest Regional Adult Detention Center on charges of forcible sodomy, public intoxication, and possession of marijuana. Additional charges will be sought. The Winchester Police Department appreciates the assistance provided by the Frederick County and Winchester City Sheriffโ€™s Offices during this incident.

Comment on Facebook

While some comments seemed plausible, the majority of them were not. What everyone needs to understand is that the 28 year old victim was taken by surprise while she was reaching in her car and was overpowered, she was eventually able to fight the attacker off. She did not simply run because her young daughter was in the backseat of the vehicle, thankfully unaware of what was going on. What is disturbing is that the person that was parked next to her was there at the onset of the attack and chose to drive away. I truly hope this person is never in a situation where he needs help and none is given. On the upside of all this the store employees responded right away by calling 911 and staying around to give a statement to the police officer. Their support after the fact was amazing. Hats off to the police and fire units on the call. The attacker was quickly apprehended and the victim was treated with dignity and respect. The rest is in the hands of the court system.

Thank you for sharing. Thank you for your service. I hope he gets what he deserves.

Prayers for all involved

Thank god he,was caught.

Where were all the MEN during this?

So glad you got him

guess he will say he was "intoxicated" so hes not responsible ๐Ÿ˜”

It's chester the molester.

This is why EVERYONE should carry ๐Ÿ˜‚

Isn’t this rape?

Contact me. I teach weapons training.

Someone get their mans

I’ve seen this guy by the Chick Fil A acting drugged up and arguing with someone who wasn’t there. Horrific that he sexually assaulted someone—I’m sure he will be released in short order.

This is why all females should carry

I use a London Bobby whistle Darn loud and noisy and would attract attention anywhere

Glad that POS got caught

POS!!! I'm sure glad he was caught! Hopefully he won't slip thru the cracks! He needs more than a slap on the wrist!

Musta froze his wonker. Off

Way to go officers!!!

My sympathies to the ladies that went through this..heard the scanner call was hoping they would catch him before he did it again.. seriously crazy world today.

To all who say conceal carry, serious damage can be done to an attacker by hand as well. I’m all for conceal carry, but I think we should be prepared to respond aggressively in the event we cannot get to a gun!

This is a sick world we live in, stay close to God and pray for protection everyday!!

Where is Lorena Bobbitt when you need her??

David I Agree With That! I gave a 9 mm to my buddies wife in ct last year.

So sorry to hear that a young woman was assaulted! Prayers for during this horrific attack!
