The Vinton Police Department has secured 25 criminal warrants on 18-year-old Hunter Dylan Hall after an incident involving break-ins to numerous vehicles in a neighborhood off Mountain View Road in the Town of Vinton.
Vinton Police started receiving reports of larcenies from unlocked vehicles at approximately 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25. During the course of the investigation, a Vinton officer observed a white male subject on Meadows Road acting suspiciously. When the officer attempted to speak with the subject, the subject fled on foot. Vinton police officers quickly formed a perimeter, thus securing the area.
The subject was then observed running through Goode Park, behind Food Lion in Roanoke County. Vinton officers subsequently apprehended Hall after a foot pursuit. In the area where Hall was taken into custody, a firearm was located submerged in a creek. The firearm was reported stolen from one of the vehicle break- ins that had been reported earlier in the day.
With the assistance of a Virginia State Police tracking K9 team, several other items from the larcenies were located in the 1700 block of Meadows Road.
Hall has been charged with 14 counts of breaking into vehicles, 10 counts of larceny and one count of grand larceny for stealing a firearm. Hall was also found to have two outstanding felony warrants for threatening to burn a dwelling and property damage, along with one outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court. Hall is currently being held, without bond, in the Roanoke County Jail. His last known address was in the Town of Vinton.
