HANOVER COUNTY, Va. — A 16-year-old Henrico boy was arrested and charged with breaking into the Goodwill store on Washington Highway in Hanover early Friday morning. The teenager’s name was not released due to his age. Hanover deputies responded at about 3 a.m. when an alarm was tripped at the Goodwill store.

“Once on scene deputies discovered a window to the pedestrian door was broken,” Hanover Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt James Cooper said. “While deputies were checking the perimeter of the building, they observed a white male inside the store. Deputies identified themselves to the male who fled to the back of the store. The suspect ran out of a door on the rear of the business. Due to the perimeter deputies had established on the business, the suspect was taken into custody without incident.”

The teenage had taken a purse from the Goodwill store, Cooper added. The suspect was charged with breaking and entering, petit larceny, and destruction of property. He is being held at Merrimac Detention Facility.

Anyone with information about the crime was asked to call the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office at 804-365-6140.
