The Hampton Police Division has arrested James Oliver III and Jordan Unlu, in connection with several vandalisms that occurred in the Downtown area of the city on April 9, 2017.
On April 9, 2017, at approximately 2:00 a.m., officers responded to the area of West Queens Way and Kings Way for a complaint of vandalism.
Officers arrived on scene and spoke to the complainant that relayed to the officers that while in the 1st block of West Queens Way the complaint had observed what they believed to be fresh spray paint located on a fence to the rear of the Marker 20 restaurant. The complainant further relayed to officers that they observed two males in the same vicinity and when the complainant went to ask them about the graffiti both subjects took off running.
A description of both male subjects was obtained and officers began checking the area. Officers located both subjects in the area of West Queens Way and North Armistead Avenue.
As a result of the investigation both subjects were placed under arrest and James Oliver III, a 26-year-old Hampton man with a last known address in the 300 block of Fountain Way was charged with 2 counts of Vandalism to Private Property.
