Three charged in connection with burglaries in multiple counties

Two men and a woman have been charged in connection with a series of burglaries last August that spanned several counties, including James City County, York, Gloucester and Isle of Wight counties, police said.

Yorktown residents Gary Martin, 39, and Bethany Wilson, 35, and Hampton resident Remy Milloy, 34, are charged with grand larceny, burglary, larceny with intent to sell and conspiracy to commit grand larceny, James City County Police spokeswoman Stephanie Williams said.

The three are charged in connection with an Aug. 10 burglary at a James City County residence in the 8200 block of Wrenfield Drive, where jewelry, tools and small electronic devices were stolen, Williams said.

Police say a glass backdoor was broken to gain entry into the home sometime between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. During that span of time, witnesses reported seeing a woman driving a white pickup truck in a circle around a cul-de-sac near the home about five times, Williams said.

The residents were not home at the time.

A machete, drill, drill bit, test meter, camera, memory sticks and jewelry were taken from the home, Williams said.

The police investigation into the incident revealed a connection with other burglaries in York, Gloucester and Isle of Wight counties, Williams said.

On Aug. 24, the Gloucester Sheriff’s Office searched a white pickup truck owned by Martin and recovered several pieces of jewelry that belonged to the victims in James City County. Police also discovered Wilson had pawned a ring from the James City County house on Aug. 14.

Police also were able to connect Milloy to the James City County burglary.

Milloy and Wilson have both been taken into custody by police. Warrants against Martin are still outstanding.

Milloy is scheduled to appear in the Williamsburg-James City County General District Court on Feb. 21 at 7:59 a.m.

Wilson is scheduled to appear in the same court March. 9 at 8:30 a.m.
