A Roanoke woman was arrested Tuesday for her connection to a burglary ring coined by officers as “The B & E Gang,” responsible for five burglaries in Bedford County.
Tanisha Nelson, 20, is linked to the group previously thought to be made up of five men.
Nelson is charged with five counts of grand larceny and two counts of larceny of a firearm. She is being held on a $25,000 bond in the Bedford Adult Detention Center.
Nathan Nelms is still at large. If you have any information, call the sheriff's office at 540-586-7827.
Bedford County Sheriff's deputies want you to know about what they call a "very prolific gang" that's breaking into homes.
Since mid December a group of five men have been on a burglary spree. Officers call them "The B & E Gang". "B and E" stands for Breaking and Entering.
Sheriff Mike Brown says this is the largest operation in Bedford County he's ever seen. Officers have arrested all five, except Nathan Nelms, also known as "Tug".
A shooting just last week in Bedford broke this case for the sheriffs department. "They'll knock on the door. If they get a response, they always have a relatively legitimate question to ask," Sheriff Mike Brown told WDBJ7. "If they knock and don't get an answer then they break in."
Televisions, computers, speakers, dvd players and guns have been recovered. Officers say there are still a lot of weapons that are not accounted for.
