BURGLARY: On April 24, deputies responded to a residence on Liberty Street in Lexington Park for a report of a burglary in progress. As deputies responded to the residence a lookout was dispatched for the suspect. Upon arrival deputies observed a male matching the suspect's description in front of the residence. Deputies made contact with the subject who was identified as Randall Clark Rieves, 28, of Lexington Park. When deputies ordered the Rieves away from the residence he refused. When deputies attempted to detain Rieves, so they could investigate the burglary, he pulled away and resisted the deputies attempt to handcuff him. Once Rieves was secure the deputies continued their investigation which revealed the victim heard someone knocking on her door. When the victim inquired who was at the door the suspect refused to identify himself by name. The victim opened the door slightly to see who was at the door and Rieves entered the residence unlawfully. The victim ran to the back of the residence and Rieves followed. The victim retrieved a handgun and told Rieves to leave at which time Rieves complied. The victim locked the door and called the police. As the victim was waiting for deputies to arrive Rieves again attempted to enter the residence by turning the door knob and hitting the door to the residence with his shoulder. The victim did not know Rieves and he did not have permission to be in her residence. Rieves was charged with Fourth Degree Burglary.
