Stolen van used in hit and run
A Norfolk man has been jailed after a hit and run weekend.
Norfolk Police Division Captain Michael Bauer said officers responded to a hit-and-run incident on the 800 block of Queen City Boulevard at 1:22 am Saturday.
Witnesses identified the running vehicle as a green pickup and provided a description of the damage sustained. Fifteen minutes later, officers were called to the 1400 block of Elm Avenue about a white pickup truck reckless driving in the area. The pickup had lost a trailer it was towing and the trailer was in the lawn of one of the houses in the area.
As officers were responding, they spotted the green hit-and-run pickup truck parked in the middle of the roadway on the 1000 block of Elm Avenue. The vehicle was in motion and the driver’s door was left open.
A witness arrived and told officers that the white pickup was involved in an accident on Magnet Street and that the male driver exited the white pickup and was last seen speeding northbound. Bauer said officers located the male and identified him as Jeray J. Fourcloud, 19, of Norfolk.
In the subsequent investigation, it was learned that Fourcloud allegedly drove the green pickup that was involved in the hit and run, and that the pickup was stolen from him. It was also learned that Fourcloud allegedly stole a second pickup — described as a white Dodge Ram 3500 — that night. Additionally, Bauer claimed that Fourcloud was impaired by alcohol, testing more than twice the legal limit.
Fourcloud was arrested on charges of drunk driving (first felony and two counts of grand theft). He was also issued a citation on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, intentional reckless driving and no driver’s license. He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
