Botetourt County investigators have made two arrests in a home invasion incident that occurred on December 28, 2009. (See our original coverage here.)
George Theodore Fitzgerald and Kevin Wayne Ferguson, both 32 and of Roanoke, have been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, breaking and entering, two counts of abduction, wearing a mask, two counts of robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Shortly after midnight on December 28, 2009, three subjects entered the home of an elderly couple on Glebe Hill Road in Daleville and awakened the residents. The couple was forced at gunpoint to lead them to their home safe, but the victim was too nervous to open it. In addition to taking the safe, the trio also took a purse from one of the victims.
Investigators have been working diligently on this case since it was reported. The investigation continues in regard to the third suspect.
