NEWPORT, Va. (WDBJ) - Police agencies spent Tuesday afternoon in the Winding Way area of Newport in Giles County, near Super Val-UGrocery, after the potential sighting of an armed and dangerous suspect wanted in Craig County since last week for a variety of offenses, including an assault on two deputies.
According to the Giles County Sheriff’s Office, a witness described seeing someone wearing a blue flannel shirt with white and black stripes and blue jeans that resembled the wanted man, Shawn Tolbert. The person had a mustache and slicked-back hair and was possibly carrying a bag.
