LAWRENCEVILLE – Jamie Lorenzo Blackwell, 28, from Alberta, Virginia is charged with possession of a Schedule I, II controlled substance, possession of marijuana, more than 1 pound; possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs and eluding police, a misdemeanor, on Sept. 11, 2021.
Captain Brad Evans with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office said Deputy T. Harding was monitoring traffic on Route 46 around 6:18 p.m. and saw a green/black motorcycle come into the radar beam at 68 mph in a posted 55 mph zone near the Brunswick Country Club. He initiated a traffic stop and noticed that he did not locate the motorcycle once he rounded the curve, which led him to believe the driver was attempting to elude. Harding noticed that the motorcycle had crashed at the intersection of Songbird Court. Blackwell was the operator of the motorcycle. Harding called for assistance and began to investigate the crash site. He located several packages of marijuana scattered down the path of the wreck. He located a red book bag that contained marijuana, a handgun, and other narcotics. Blackwell admitted that he saw the patrol vehicle turn around and he was looking back to see if he could see the deputy when he entered the curve too fast and lost control of the motorcycle. The Virginia State Police cited Blackwell for reckless driving.
In other matters, Willie Hudson Chittum, 30, from Bracey, Virginia is charged with possession of a Schedule I, II controlled substance on Sept. 11, 2021.
Deputy T. Harding received a call on Sept. 12, 2021 for a disturbance in progress. The caller said that Chittum had come upon the property and was causing issues. Following this call Chittum then called 911 stating he was being shot at and was fleeing the residence. Chittum fled to Moseley’s Store on Robinson Ferry Road where he was found shortly after.
Chittum stated there was a dispute and he was shot at and fled the scene. Other units investigated this incident and found no charges would be filed by the office and left it up to both parties to charge via the magistrate if they wished to.
After this information was relayed to Chittum Harding asked him if he could search his vehicle and he granted consent. Harding located a green and black scale in the console, which had a white powdery substance. Chittum stated it was either cocaine or crystal meth. Harding explained it looked more like crystal meth and he agreed it was meth. Chittum said he went to the reporting party’s house to retrieve his belongs and didn’t know how it got into the truck that he was operating.
The scale was collected and Chittum was charged with possession of methamphetamine. He was transported to the Meherrin River Regional Jail and set on a $2,500 secure bond.
Timothy Ray Broyles, 31, from Rawlings, Virginia is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol on Sept. 13, 2021 and refusal of a blood or breath test.
Deputy A. W. Connell stopped a four door Toyota for running the stop sign at Boydton Plank Road and Old Stage Road. The vehicle also ran the stop sign in the median before turning south on Boydton Plank Road. Connell initiated a traffic stop and found Broyles to be the driver. Connell immediately smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person. He saw several empty beer bottles in the passenger’s floorboard. Connell administered a preliminary breath test and Broyles blew a 0.21% BAC. Broyles was arrested and he immediately became aggressive yelling he was not drunk and that he could kick Connell. He placed Broyles in the back of the patrol car and he continued to scream and make crazy statements. Deputy Lewis waited with the car and Ricky’s towed the vehicle. While he was being transported to the Meherrin River Regional Jail he threatened Connell and asked several times for Connell to stop the car at Davis Travel Plaza to they could fight. Broyles made several comments about what he was going to do with Connell on the street. Once at the regional jail Broyles continued to be aggressive while Deputy Grassel and Connell escorted him into the intake area. He was placed into a holding cell. Broyles refused to listen after several attempts to explain procedures. Connell went before Magistrate Wilson and received a warrant for DUI and a summons for refusal. Broyles was too intoxicated and violent for a bond hearing. He was kicking the holding cell door, screaming at the jailers, and Ms. Wilson was having a hard time hearing Connell. Ms. Wilson advised another magistrate would hold the bond hearing later in the morning.
Kevin Nicolas Palencia Monroy, 23, from Duluth, Georgia is charged with obstructing justice without threats/force and no valid operator’s license on Sept. 3, 2021.
Deputy A. W. Connell stopped a vehicle for traveling 84 mph in a 70 mph zone at mile marker 31 northbound Interstate 85. When the vehicle pulled over to the shoulder, the driver jumped in the back seat and another subject got behind the wheel. While this was taking place, their car rolled back and hit the patrol car. Connell identified the driver as Monroy. He did not speak good English but he was acting like he was not the driver and had been in the back seat. Connell asked Monroy to step out of the vehicle and arrested him for obstruction. There were three other people in the car and no one had a driver’s license. The car was registered to a female from Atlanta, Georgia. Ricky’s responded and towed the vehicle. Connell took Monroy in front of the magistrate and received a warrant for obstruction.

Deputy A. D. Peter was dispatched to a residence on Dry Bread Road for a report of a disturbance. Peter spoke to the resident and reporting party. The caller stated Thompson was drunk and had driven his car through the yard and struck her vehicle with his. Before Peter arrived Thompson had fled into the woods. Peter spoke with Thompson via cell phone and asked him to come out but he stated that he was not and began to curse and hung up. Peter used the PA system to try to call Thompson out before Deputy Green deployed his tracking K9. Meredith Towing responded to the residence to remove Thompson’s vehicle at the homeowner’s request.
Once the vehicle was removed the officers left the residence. They were gone about 10 minutes when they were called back to the area when a neighbor called stating a male was beating on their door. Peter went back to the original address and found Thompson sitting in a chair on the porch with his socks and boots off. Peter advised him that he was under arrest for drunk in public.
