Additional charges for man charged in Waynesboro pursuit


Blair, David Lee IIIDavid Lee Blair III is facing additional charges in Waynesboro as a result of Monday night’s vehicle pursuit and the Elkton home invasion from last weekend.

As had been previously released, Blair discarded methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia from his vehicle onto Waynesboro streets when the vehicle pursuit began.  This property was recovered early Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, an Augusta County resident located an M4 semi-automatic rifle while mowing on his property in the 700 block of Hermitage Road.  The citizen turned the rifle over to the Waynesboro Police Department after seeing news of the pursuit from local media outlets.  The rifle was stolen from the Elkton home during the home invasion robbery.  On Wednesday, the Waynesboro Police Department, using ATVs and foot patrols, conducted an extensive search of the area along Route 254 that theMonday’s pursuit travelled.   Officers found a cellphone and a knapsack with about $2,000 and lottery tickets inside.

The new charges for Blair are Possession of a Firearm while in Possession of a Schedule I or II drug (f) and Driving on a Revoked License (m).

He remains at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.
