Process server allegedly threatened with shotgun

A 48-year-old Nanjemoy man was taken into custody June 19 for allegedly threatening a process server with a gun.

According to charging documents, a process server arrived at Keith Romero Brevard Sr.’s Tayloes Neck Road residence to serve a woman residing there with papers. Brevard allegedly told the server the woman was not present, and while the server was in his car filling out paperwork Brevard stepped outside with a shotgun.

“[The server] thought this was an irrational response for the situation, and was afraid because of the man’s actions,” the report says. “[The server] yelled back at the man, asking him his name. [Brevard allegedly] replied ‘12 gauge’ and racked the shotgun,” at which point the server left.

When officers arrived at Brevard’s home shortly after the incident, according to the report, he agreed to speak with officers and “provided the location of a 12-gauge short gun, which was recovered.”

Brevard was charged with first- and second-degree assault. He was held in default for $5,000, according to court records, and was released June 20. He has a preliminary district court hearing July 19.

Aquasco man accused of purchase order fraud

After allegedly using false pretenses to obtain copper tubing from a White Plains business, 39-year-old Kenneth Lee Hamilton of Aquasco was arrested and charged with five counts of theft and one of theft scheme.

According to charging documents, between May 31 and June 11, Hamilton allegedly visited Ferguson Enterprises on DeMarr Road five separate times. Each time, he allegedly presented store employees with a made-up purchase order number, posing as an employee of a local plumber. Hamilton allegedly used this ruse to acquire a collective $1,559.37 worth of copper tubing that he did not pay for.

The report says an employee allegedly identified Hamilton based on the man’s tattoos, and he was arrested June 24 according to court records. Records also show Hamilton was served with an arrest warrant from April when taken into custody in June: In that matter, he is charged with two counts of theft.

Court records indicate that Hamilton is on probation for a 2013 theft to which he pleaded guilty in 2014. As of June 25, he is being held without bond.
