A Nelson County man is being held without bond today in Middle River Regional Jail, facing multiple charges. On Tuesday, Nov. 19, Waynesboro police received a call from a resident, who saw a man sleeping in a vehicle on Wickham Lane.

As the location is right down from Kate Collins Middle School, the assigned resource officer went to investigate. He found William Curtis Hope, 23, of Schuyler, asleep in the vehicle. When the officer tried to wake Hope up, he turned over and went back to sleep. The officer called for backup and then did a check of the vehicle, a 1996 Toyota Tacoma truck. There were two license plates on the vehicle, neither of which came back as registered to the Tacoma. After running the vehicle identification number through the national crime database, Waynesboro police found it had been stolen in Buckingham County.

After a second officer arrived, the two woke up Hope and took him into custody. After running his information through the national database, officers found Hope had active warrants in both Nelson and Amherst counties. After searching the truck, officers also found methamphetamine and used syringes inside.

Hope now faces felony charges in Waynesboro for possession of methamphetamine and knowingly possessing stolen property. He also faces charges for failure to appear in court from Nelson County and a grand larceny charge in Amherst County.
