PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - A Portsmouth man was charged late Sunday evening after an alarm sounded at a local business.
Jan Clark with Portsmouth Police said Officers noticed a white pick-up truck leaving the rear of Premier Copper and Brass in the 500 block of Lincoln Street around 11:30 p.m. after an alarm went off inside the business.
Officers stopped the truck and found 49-year-old Kenneth Donnel Granger. He had several tools with him that are consistent with items typically used for break ins, according to Clark, so he was arrested and charged with possession of burglary tools.
However, Clark said Detectives are reviewing additional recovered physical evidence, and depending on the results, addition charges could be filed against Granger.
An inventory at Premier Copper and Brass will determine if anything was taken.
