October 31, 2016
Monday, October 31, 2016, was a timely ‘treat’ for Bedford County Sheriff’s Office investigators, when they arrested a Campbell county man and charged him with five burglaries. Bedford teamed with Altavista Police Department and Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and arrested Michael Ray Ferguson, Jr., age 31. Ferguson was also charged with five counts of grand larceny. These burglaries all occurred during daylight hours between October 4 and October 20, 2016. Three firearms were recovered by Investigators that had been reported stolen by victims of this crime wave.
Ferguson is being held in the Amherst Adult Detention Center.
