Lynchburg Captain on Administrative Leave After Case Reopens

Posted:

Update Thursday:

Lynchburg, VA - The Lynchburg Commonwealth's Attorney released information Thursday about why his office decided to reopen the investigation into a sheriff's deputy's relationship with Lynchburg Pawn.

Mike Doucette says they learned of new information a few weeks ago, and that made them reopen the case. 

------------------------------

Lynchburg, VA - The case against a captain in the Lynchburg's Sheriff's Office has been reopened.

Buddy Gene Wade is now on administrative leave.

Wade is being investigated for his dealing with Lynchburg Pawn Shop two years ago.

A former employee of that Pawn Shop was convicted of embezzlement for stealing gold from the shop.

The transcript from court proceedings says Lynchburg Pawn began to suspect that the defendant, former employee Julian Thaxton, may have been giving scrap jewelry to Wade. It goes on to say that Thaxton acknowledges that Wade would often frequent Lynchburg Pawn in uniform during business hours.

The employee was convicted. But the case against Wade was closed without any charges filed against him.

Now, according to Sheriff Ron Gillispie, Lynchburg Commonwealth's Attorney Mike Doucette has reopened the investigation.

We will bring you more as we get it.
