MEDIA RELEASE
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, at approximately 10:45 A.M. officers of the Waynesboro Police Department responded to a suspicious person in the 200 block of Pelham Drive. Area residents reported a white male subject was knocking on doors and acting strange.

Officers located the suspicious white male near the townhomes in the 100 block of Pelham Drive. The suspect was identified as Shawn Douglas Oliver 36 of Waynesboro. While speaking with Oliver, he retreated into 112 Pelham Drive and locked the door. At this point, officers discovered evidence that indicated Oliver had previously kicked in the entrance to the townhome.

Officers then started a dialogue with Oliver through the door of the townhome. Swat and Negotiations Team responded to the scene.

Oliver cracked the door and spoke with officers. Oliver then displayed a handgun towards officers and retreated into the residence.

Chemical agents were deployed into the residence, and Oliver retreated to a second-story room.
The Waynesboro Police Negotiations and SWAT Team continued to negotiate Oliver’s surrender. Negotiation attempts failed.

Oliver then fired multiple shots from a second-story window; officers deployed more chemical agents into the second-story window. Oliver threw a handgun out of the second-story window and threatened to burn the building down. Chemical agents were used again; the entry team had assembled to make entry into the residence, and Oliver surrendered at that point. No officers or citizens were injured during this incident.
Oliver was arrested and taken before a state magistrate, and the following charges were issued:

18.2-308.2: Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Felony
18.2-83: Threat to bomb or burn a building. Felony
18.2-250: Possession of Methamphetamine. Felony
18.2-460: Knowingly impede law enforcement officer by force. (3 counts) Felony
18.2-119: Trespassing. Class 1 Misdemeanor
18.2-137: Damage property. Class 1 Misdemeanor

Oliver was held without bond and is currently being held in MRRJ.

I have a feeling this person is going to get caught!

What the heck

😂😂😂😂

Female with large watch on the left hand, she must have known that the pizza place was leaving cash that day, may be a person who works there tipped her or she works there. by the size of the bricks you can figure out her shoe size and based on the reference point produced by the angle of the camera you can deduct her height.

Looks like a woman

Is it a woman?

How about pedestrians make sure the driver see's you before you cross. I have had pedestrians just walk out and don't even look for a car.

Pedestrians need to adhear to crosswalk protocal as well: a SOLID orange hand means DON'T WALK - a SOLID white figure means BEGIN WALKING - a FLASHING orange hand with a countdoun timer means "DO NOT" BEGIN WALKING. the countdown timer informs those who began walking during the BEGIN WALKING symbol the time that remains to safely cross. Also, please turn your head and L O O K before you begin crossing. THE LIFE YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN. a reminder from HARRISONBURG DEPT. of TRAFFIC ENGINEERING

How bout safety awareness for scooters.

The Page County Sheriff’s Office Foundation was established in 2018, after two members of the department attended a Professional Leadership Academy. Captain Aaron Cubbage and Lieutenant Tim Lansberry attended the course at the Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Training Academy in Weyers Cave. The course, offered to supervisors, was taught by Dr. Robert England. The class met three days in August of 2018 and three days in November of 2018.

During the course, various supervision and leadership styles were discussed. Within the break between the course dates, a project approved by the agency administrator, had to be completed by the participants. The project had to be something that would benefit the agency and the community with little to no financial burden to the department. Once the project concept was completed, the pair had to present the project to the class and prepare to defend the logistics of the project and the management of such an idea.

Captain Cubbage and Lieutenant Lansberry began working on the formation of the Page County Sheriff’s Office Foundation. With Sheriff Cubbage’s approval, the two began to work toward forming a board that would oversee the foundation. The purpose of forming the Foundation, is so that the Sheriff’s Office Foundation can accept in-kind donations on behalf of the Sheriff’s Office as it strives to meet the law enforcement needs of Page County residents and businesses. Those monetary donations can be used to benefit the department by providing equipment or training that may not be covered by the county budget. The board was to also act as an advisory board to promote citizen knowledge and understanding of law enforcement activities. Multiple citizens from across the county were polled to find their interest in being a part of and devoting time to such an organization. Lieutenant Lansberry worked with the County Attorney, Mr. Nathan Miller, to draft by-laws of the foundation and complete the appropriate State Corporation Commission paperwork. Through the help of Blue Ridge Bank, all of the initial filing expenses were covered by their generous donation.

By December of 2018, the Board of Directors and Officers were established and the by-laws and State Corporation Commission paperwork had been filed and meetings began. The following board members/officers were selected for the inaugural board;

President- Dale Hamilton
Vice President- Darryl Haley
Secretary- Wendy Rome
Treasurer- Shirley Fleharty
Director- Kathy Weakley
Director- Norma Sharp

PCSO Liaisons - Capt. Aaron Cubbage
Lt. Tim Lansberry

Through the initial meetings, the Board began working on becoming a “Non-Profit” organization, recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and identifying specific needs and fundraisers that could benefit the Page County Sheriff’s Office. In late summer of 2019, the Internal Revenue Service recognized the Page County Sheriff’s Office Foundation as a “Non-Profit/Tax-Exempt” organization under the 501(c) 3 exemption status. That means that individuals could donate to the foundation and use their donation as a tax deduction.
One of the needs identified by the board and requested by the Sheriff’s Office was the need for ballistic vests for the department K-9, “Art”.

During the fundraiser discussions, the Department announced that they had secured a second K-9 through the use of asset forfeiture funds. The board agreed that the goal would be to raise funds for a ballistic vest for both “Art” and the new K-9, “Uri”.

In October of 2019, the Page County Sheriff’s Office tragically and unexpectedly lost a young Deputy from within their department, Deputy Raymond Leeth. At the request of Deputy Leeth’s family, donations were to be made to the Page County Sheriff’s Office Foundation in Ray’s memory. To date, over $900.00 was donated in Ray’s memory to the Foundation. The board has decided that they will use these funds, along with other funding, to purchase the ballistic vests for the two K-9s in Deputy Leeth’s memory. Ballistic Vests for both dogs are estimated to be around $5,000.00.

An anonymous donor has contacted the Board and agreed to match up to $500.00 of any additional donations that are made to the Page County Sheriff’s Office Foundation in Deputy Leeth’s memory.

If you or someone you know may be interested in donating to the Page County Sheriff’s Office Foundation, please send your donation to P.O. Box 713 Luray, Virginia 22835.

The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month. Anyone interested in in more information on the PCSOF, contact treasurer Shirley Fleharty at 540-742-1205 or e-mail shirleyfleharty@embarqmail.com.

( Pictured is our new K9 "Uri" and his handler Deputy Shane Turner and K9 "Art" and his handler Deputy Jared Thomas and the late Deputy Raymond Leeth)

With Halloween only a few weeks away, we thought we would share some great pedestrian safety tips from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

To stay safe and healthy on the roads, pedestrians and motorists need to respect each other.

Pedestrians should:

Be predictable, follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals.
Plan a route with safe crossings
Avoid distractions, alcohol and drugs, and be alert
Dress to be seen, but never assume drivers see you
Wear reflective clothing, and carry a blinking light or flashlight at night
Walk on sidewalks facing traffic
If there’s no sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible
Watch for cars backing up, especially in parking lots and driveways
Cross at crosswalks or intersections – where drivers expect pedestrians. While crossing, look for cars in all directions, including those turning left or right, and make eye contact with turning drivers before proceeding when possible.
Turning vehicles can be especially dangerous at intersections. If there is no crosswalk or intersection, go to a well-lit area with the best view of traffic, wait until there is enough time to cross safely, and continue to watch for traffic while crossing.
Parents and caregivers should remind vulnerable children and older adults to be safe as pedestrians. Young children are impulsive and active, and may need guidance when walking near roads. Older adults may need to be reminded to wait for a new walk signal or new green light before crossing at stoplights to give them ample time to cross.

To stay safe, pedestrians of all ages should work together with all road users, which means using crosswalks and obeying signs and signals. Motorists should slow down, especially in areas with high-pedestrian traffic.

We live in the area and this is very unsettling. We always think our little neighborhood is so safe, hope the victim is doing okay. Keep us updated please!

Thanks for posting . I’m sure your detectives will solve and uphold the law

Let me add that a month ago I had a situation at 3:30 am. Someone was in my back yard trying to get in. Then went around to front. I put light on and got pics while on the phone but with 911. I was also armed with s very angry dog. I gave clear warning that if a breach occurred he would be shot. SPD was great with 4 cars arriving. It turned out to be my next door neighbor totally intoxicated. What is bad on my part is that at night we go to bed totally unprepared for a fire or intruder. I have also taken stock of things around my property and house to better offer safety for both me and first responders. So think about ways to fortify your doors. Don't put phone on airplane mode at night and other things that people personally affect you. Just be vigilant especially if you have to go outside at night.

I believe we do need more info from police. Is this a gang getting into the neighborhood. Kids, adults. This allegedly happened where Peck and Stewart Converge.

Well if we knew what these suspects looked like that would help allot!!

if this is another senior/ homeless hit... then... we might need to start looking out for them

Wow really it takes multiple punks to get what they want? It's really sad that staunton has trash like this but I guess they can't make it in a real city. You will be found and get what's coming to you.

Alice Slifer Lantz , I’m so glad that you just added this comment. Apparently you and so many other people don’t realize that Edwin Miller Boulevard is a business and residential district. From the road all you see is businesses. Behind all of those businesses are apartments complexes and housing all along that area. Many of those people don’t own vehicles and have to walk to get their groceries and medications. I always feel sad for them because it is dangerous for them to cross the roads. Once again the county’s main concern was development for businesses and not thinking about the local impact on residents. More traffic lights, sidewalks and crosswalks are badly needed at Edwin Miller Boulevard. I hope it doesn’t take someone’s death to see this.

Does anyone have any more information on this accident? My brother was KILLED in a hit and run that happened in the same area as this accident!! And the person who killed my brother is still out there!!! This accident could be caused by the SAME PERSON!! Does anyone have any info on this??

Prayers for pedestrian. I pray they catch who ever did this.

Prayers for the victim and Prayers someone is found

Oh my gosh.. Prayers for them

I would also try to educate the public...if you're needing to walk at night on busy roads have reflective shoes or tape to put on...both peds & drivers need to be responsible.

Ok now here's a patern. I've given the local news WDMV a lead from the foodlion fellow walking in rt9 that was hit last month. Now it seems another one within a few miles. Ide say there probably related. Also if the person on the 27th was African American also. Ide also considers this could be a pattern of a hate crime.. ide like to think that's not the case.

I hope they finger printed that mirror!! Really a heartless person to leave the scene! God knows exactly who you are and he will reveal you to the officers of the law

Why do people choose to walk and cross one of the busiest and most dangerous roads in Martinsburg?? Edwin Miller is like Foxcroft, only someone with a death wish would walk it or try to cross it. Even at the lights there is no crosswalk nor time enough to cross. I think for safety sake they should ban pedestrians one these two roads the same way they ban them on the interstates. The accidents are bad enough without pedestrians involved. ☹️

IS IT TIME TO GET CAMERAS AT THIS INTERSECTION NOW, SHERIFF KELLER???

People dont drive like they have since anymore. It's all about speeding ... to get no more. Cause you either wreck and hurt yourself or someone else.. I see people speeding all the time on foxcroft ave.. its ridiculous!!!

People also walk on the wrong side of traffic wearing dark colors .
