A birthday party at the Pocomoke City YMCA on Saturday, January 28, 2012 turned into a bad situation and the Pocomoke City Police Department were called to the scene for an assault that turned into a shooting incident.
Roderick Rashad Savage, Age 17 was arrested on January 31, 2012. On February 2, 2012 Devon Treye Wessells was arrested. Both are 17 years of age and from Parksley, Virginia
In an attempt to gain further evidence the Pocomoke City Police and the Accomack County Criminal Enforcement Team were able to conduct two Search and Seizure Warrants at the homes of the suspects.
Both Defendants are being held in the Norfolk Virginia Detention Center without bond pending an extradition and preliminary hearing trial date. The case is still under investigation and more arrests are expected to follow.
**Great job Pocomoke City Police Department and Accomack County Criminal Enforcement Team.**
So many words of praise need to be said for the recent communications between local law enforcement agencies. Many times crime that occurs in Pocomoke spills into Accomack County as does what takes place in Accomack County soon finds its place in Pocomoke City. All law enforcement agencies working together will hopefully put crime to a bare minimum.
