Woman confesses to 22 break-ins in Varina
Henrico Police have arrested and charged a Mosley woman with breaking into 22 homes in the Varina area between Oct. 26 and Dec. 2. Melissa W. Addison, 36, confessed to the break-ins, police said today, as well as to three break-ins in Charles City County and two more in Chesterfield County, which held outstanding warrants in her name.
Henrico Police gathered information that indicated Addison would take her children to school each morning, then travel to Henrico to break into homes and steal various items, including jewelry and cash.
The Henrico incidents occurred on Hideaway lane, Turner Road, Yahley Road, Darbytown Road, Hines Road, Long Bridge Road, Carters Mill Road, Hare Road, Charles City Road, Doran Road, Strath Road, Yahley Mill Road and Bradbury Road.
On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.
“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
