Last September, on a Sunday during church hours, a Penske rental truck rolled up Secretairy Road past No Trespassing signs and entered the property of Former County Supervisor Granville Hogg. The truck did this not once, but twice. According to Mr. Hogg, other thefts, burglaries, and B&R have occurred at this location. Mr. Hogg, unable to determine the identity of the driver, engaged him with a handgun–which is within a citizen’s right to detain a suspect until authorities are present.
At the time, Hogg was charged with a misdemeanor, however, since the case was in Northampton, the Accomac District Attorney was appointed as special prosecutor.
At this point, things took a turn onto Crazy Highway.
After reviewing the case, the prosecution decided to raise the stakes and charge Hogg with a felony. The facts of the case have not changed, so this move is curious.
The court date is May 21st at 12:00, Northampton Circuit Court.
