Man charged with burglary at Marshall Food Lion
The Fauquier sheriff’s office has filed several charges against a Baltimore man for burglary at the Food Lion in Marshall on Tuesday night.
Troy DeWitte Neal Jr., of Baltimore, faces three criminal charges.
Deputies responded to an alarm at the store on Winchester Road at approximately 11:40 p.m. Dec. 10, Sgt. James Hartman said. A store employee soon met them and provided access to the security system.
“The suspect was observed on security video entering the store after employees had set the alarm and left,” Sgt. Hartman said in a press release. “The suspect was identified as a subcontractor who regularly cleans the floors inside the store. The suspect took food items before the alarm sounded, causing him to flee the building.
“A detective obtained warrants charging Troy DeWitte Neal Jr., of Baltimore, with burglary and petit larceny. On Wednesday at approximately 9:15 p.m., Neal was observed back in the store by employees. However, he left as they called the sheriff’s office. A deputy located Neal near the store. During the investigation, Neal provided false identification to the deputy and was subsequently charged with providing false identification to law enforcement in addition to the burglary and petit larceny charges.”
Mr. Neal, 29, was held without bond at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center.
