FRIES — Grayson County deputies on Oct. 27 responded to a burglary in progress at 172 Carnation Lane in Fries, which led to a chase on foot and several charges against a suspect.
Pamela Vaughan reported to police that Conley Allen Lineberry had kicked her door in and forced entry into the residence, according to a report from the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department.
“Once inside, Lineberry allegedly threatened to kill Vaughan,” the report said.
Deputy Jason Carico arrived at 10:18 p.m. — four minutes after the call was received. Grayson Sheriff Richard Vaughan stated that it was Carico’s quick response that caused Lineberry to flee the residence on foot.
Cpl. Adam Horton and Deputy Alan Graham arrived at the scene a few minutes later and located Lineberry in an outbuilding behind the residence.
Lineberry 36, of 59 Wolfsnare Road in Fries, was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit murder, assault and battery, trespassing and possession of marijuana. He is being held in the New River Valley Regional Jail without bail.
