Virginia State Police announced late Sunday that 22-year-old Anthony White,  of Mineral, was also taken into custody on a gang charge. He too is due in court in March.

A CBS 6 investigation revealed that Stokes and Uhuru had gang ties and has recently been released from prison.

Additionally, two Albemarle County siblings were arrested Tuesday night in connection with the Quick case.

Mersadies Shelton, 20,  and Mathis, 18, are being held without bond after being charged with felony grand larceny in connection with Quick’s stolen vehicle. Their home address, on Barracks Road in Charlottesville, is less than two miles from the apartments where Quick was headed.
