Michael R. Bradshaw Jr., 22, of Montross, charged with the armed robbery of the 7-Eleven in Colonial Beach was tried on Friday, March 28 and the court found him guilty of robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a robbery, wearing a mask in public and conspiracy to commit robbery.
These are the four charges Bradshaw was indicted on in Westmoreland Circuit Court in October 2013 in relation to the armed robbery at the 7-Eleven in the Town of Colonial Beach that occurred on March 7, 2013 at approximately 11:45 p.m.
The case was originally a Colonial Beach Police Department case, but the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office took it over several months later. Senior Det. William Lewko, Det. Donald Jones, Det. J Mitchell, and First Sgt. of the detective division Vanessa Schoch were the investigating officers.
At the time of his indictments in October, Bradshaw was already being held without bond at the Northern Neck Regional Jail on previous charges for breaking and entering into Grants Hill Baptist Church, one count of grand larceny in the theft of a flat-screen television and a safe, and one count of willful and malicious breaking of a door or window of a house of public worship with damage of less than $1,000. Bradshaw was arrested March 26, 2013 on charges related to those crimes, which occurred in February and March.
His sentencing date for the charges related to the armed robbery of the 7-Eleven in Colonial Beach is set for May 23, 2014 at 10 a.m.
