Once again people need to realize how important our police departments are here and across the country!! Thank u for continuing to help protect us.

I'm so heartbroken for the young lady. I pray she is surrounded with love and mountains of support.

Poor kid this man needs to stay locked up and have his thing cut off

This individual should be taught what " an eye for an eye" really means. Maybe a correctional officer will politely point him out during processing!!! Before he knows it, he won't be able to hold a fart! No sympathy for child rapists!

hope he gets a taste and MORE of what he did to that poor girl, in jail

he will be finding out what rape is all about when he goes to jail!!!!!

Throw the book at him!

Which they would post stuff everyone safety

That poor child...

Jr Deane so true

Gonna keep happening with no laws to keep them out

Aint gonna do nothing but deport him back across our open border #WakeUpAmerica

Guess what he will get when he goes to prison? POS

He gone find out when he goes to prison what rape is

Peice of SHIT!!!!! BURN IN HELL. 🔥 🔥

Sick

LETHAL INJECTION for each count

We cannot stress enough the importance of locking your vehicles at night and not leaving anything of value in them.

There has been a rash of vandalism and burglary reported in multiple subdivisions.

Might be a good idea to get proactive about it Greene County, Va. Sheriff's Office

hope they get right with Jesus if they come to my place, just sayin. . . . .

LOCK UP EVEN IN DAYTIME. ALWAYS...

Such a shame. They would be pretty upset to only find half empty water bottles in mine though.

Neighbor said I had a truck pull into my driveway at 2:40 AM last night. Neighbor said a black Chevy Silverado pulled into my driveway and knocked on our door and then got in his truck and left. Don’t know anybody with a black Silverado. May be staking out the neighborhood or something.

Guys help sonichu keeps asking random people to break into the jail please stop him

If I catch someone rooting through my car, I’ll ask the to please leave. LOL!

I was at work at the Greene County daycare center and somebody broke into my car and took my damn pocketbook days later my pocketbook was found at Wells Fargo at Fashion Square Mall so whoever broke into my pocketbook I had to have known them but if I ever catch you I got something really for you you may not like it but who cares

If I catch them in my car, Gus what, I hope they right with Jesus because they will meet him.

Joseph Hawkins

I am going to leave mine open and something will be waiting for that ass

Pretty simple to just lock your damn car doors. Nothing like tying up deputies with these stupid calls because people are too lazy to secure their vehicles.
