[ARCHIVED] 11-16-2022 DPD Arrests Larceny Suspect and Urges Public to Lock Vehicle Doors and Remove Valuables

Danville Police Department arrested Mr. Orlanda E. Adkins, 20, of Danville and he is facing felony and misdemeanor charges of 18.2-108-1 (receiving stolen goods), 18.2-137-7 (destruction of property), 18.2-96-10 (petit larceny), 18.2-192-17 (credit card theft), and 18.2-95-1 (grand larceny). Mr. Adkins is responsible for multiple vehicle thefts across the city of Danville. He was arrested on November 15, 2022. 

Our preliminary investigation determines there is a small cohort of individuals committing vehicle thefts across the city. To prevent this crime of opportunity, DPD wants to strongly encourage and remind Danville residents to lock their vehicle each and every he/she exits. It does not matter whether a citizen is at home, work, a parking lot, a grocery store, a public place, etc., do not leave your vehicle unlocked. By locking your doors, you greatly reduce the likelihood that your vehicle or personal possession will not be stolen. Here are tips below to help prevent thefts of/from motor vehicles:

  • Always lock your car when you park it, and remove your keys
  • Lock valuables in your truck
  • Do not leave personal ID cards, credit cards, or weapons in your vehicle 
  • Do not hide spare keys or leave keys in the car and unsecured
  • Take your valuables in at night

Stop, pop, and lock it. 

Stop: Get out of your car

Pop: Pop your keys out of your pocket

Lock: Lock your doors
