Member of Alleged Break-in Gang Pleads Guilty

Nathan Nelms

Bedford Co., VA - One of the men investigators say was part of a breaking and entering gang in Bedford County has now been convicted of six charges.

Augustus Xavier pleaded guilty to shooting into a home, attempted robbery and burglary, wearing a mask, and gun charges. Xavier will be sentenced in June.

Investigators say Xavier was part of a group that tried to get into a home on Centerville Road in January, looking for drugs and money.

The Bedford County Sheriff's Office is still looking for another man they say participated in the home invasion, Nathan Nelms. Nelms lives in Roanoke, but has family ties to Bedford County.
