Siblings from Albemarle County have been charged in connection with the disappearance of 45-year-old volunteer police officer Kevin Quick, Virginia State Police said.
Mersadies Shelton, 20, and Daniel Mathis, both of the 2600 block of Barracks Road West in Albemarle County, Va., were arrested and charged with possession of stolen property and grand larceny for the theft of Quick’s silver 1999 Toyota 4Runner. Mathis is also known by the last name Shelton.
Another sibling, Shantai M. Shelton, 24, was arrested on an unrelated outstanding arrest warrant from Louisa County. Mathis was also arrested on four felony warrants and three misdemeanor warrants issued by the Louisa County in an on-going shooting investigation.
The three were arrested Tuesday at 11 p.m. in a hotel in Alexandria, police said.
Quick, a captain of the volunteer reserve officers of Nelson County for 25 years, has been missing since late Friday evening. He was last seen at his mother's Afton, Va. home.
Police say Quick left his mother's home around 10:15 p.m. Friday and headed to a friend's house in Albemarle County but never arrived. His SUV was recovered Monday in Mineral, Va.
Aiding in the investigation are recently surfaced pictures, depicting Quick's vehicle In Fork Union and the Manassas area as late as Saturday.
Quick is described as a medium build, 200-pound, 6-foot-1-inch white man with brown hair, hazel eyes and a scar above his left eye.
In the days since his disappearance, local businesses raised a combined reward of up to $30,000 for information leading to Quick's discovery.
Police ask that anyone with information on Quick's disappearance call the Virginia State Police by dialing #77 on a cellphone or by calling 434-352-7128.
All three of those arrested Tuesday are being held at the Central Virginia Regional Jail on no bond.
