Roanoke City Deputy Charged With Breaking and Entering


Roanoke, VA - A now former Roanoke City deputy is in jail, facing two felony charges, after an incident over the weekend.

Darryl Stone Jr., 24, stands charged with one count of breaking and entering in the night, while armed, and another count of property damage in excess of $1,000.

Stone was not placed on leave.

Normally if a deputy is charged with a crime that deputy would be placed on administrative leave pending the outcome.

However, in this case, Stone was a probationary employee and the Sheriff decided to make her decision sooner than later, terminating Stone from the department.

The situation started late Sunday night when the victim wrote in a complaint that Stone, who she listed as her boyfriend, was "burning out" in her driveway with his car before beating on both back and front doors.

The complaint said Stone was angry over some "company" she had over.

Eventually, the alleged victim says, Stone, who was armed, kicked the front door down and confronted her before leaving as she talked to 911.

Stone is being held without bond until a January 16 court date.

Stone, who had been with the department since October, worked in the Roanoke City Jail.

Citing safety concerns, Stone was transferred to Botetourt/Craig County Regional Jail as he waits for his court date.
