SHENANDOAH, Feb. 9 — After nearly five hours, law enforcement officials worked their way through an incident on Fleeburg Loop near Shenandoah on Wednesday night, and decided that no charges would be filed.
Initially, the incident was thought to be a “barricade situation,” according to Page County Sheriff Chad Cubbage, in which one or more individuals were being held in a home about four miles outside of the Shenandoah town limits.
“We had received information someone could have possibly been injured in the residence,” Sheriff Cubbage said on Thursday. “We had to do our due diligence to make sure all parties were safe.”
This was confirmed by a response Page Valley News received from Shenandoah Police Chief Paul Davis while the incident was in progress.
“I can confirm that Shenandoah Police has officers on the scene at Fleeburg Loop with the Page County Sheriff’s Office assisting them with a possible barricaded situation. I do not have any further information since I am not on the scene and the incident is located in the county,” Chief Davis stated in an email before referring PVN to the sheriff’s office.
Members of the Shenandoah, Stanley and Elkton police departments joined the Page County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police after the call came out.
Sheriff Cubbage reported that the state police executed a warrant at a residence on Fleeburg Loop and found that “everything was okay.”
“We were unable to validate that there was any criminal activity,” the sheriff said. “We thought it was a barricade situation, but that’s not what it was.”
No charges were filed after police left the scene. No further details were provided.
