Three arrested for burglaries in Pickett CountySeveral arrests have been made for the many break-ins that have recently occurred in the county. On September 29th, the Pickett County Sheriff's Department responded to a call on Koger Mountain Road concerning a possible break-in. Upon the arrival, Chief Deputy Steve Wilber, Deputy Wayne Clayborn and Deputy Glen Berry found a subject in the residence who did not have consent to be there.

Donavan Garrett, 38, of Jamestown, was charged with three counts of aggravated burglary, possession of schedule III (Hydrocodone) and possession of drug paraphernalia. While investigating Mr. Garrett, further evidence has been collected could indicate more charges will be filed in connection to other burglaries in Pickett County.
