Mother and boyfriend charged in death of 4 year-old

September 1, 2008

PilotOnline reports that a mother, boyfriend have been charged with murder and child neglect in the death of a 4 year old girl.

Police found Tamera Wooden dead about 4:15 p.m. Sunday inside her mother’s home in the 300 block of East Little Creek Road, said Officer Chris Amos. The search began after the girl’s mother called police about 3 p.m. to report her daughter missing, Amos said.

The suspects are Jathiya Wooden and Troy Allen Edwards who is not the girl’s father. They are are both being held in Norfolk City Jail.


Update: Greater Wards Corner Neighborhood Watch Program

August 14, 2008

We had a great turnout for the first meeting of the Neighborhood Watch Program being instituted in the Denby Park, Oakdale Farms & Monticello Village areas. There were over 20 people at the meeting and many more signed up but could not make the meeting.

The Norfolk Police Crime Prevention Unit gave an excellent and informative presentation on crime prevention and neighborhood watch. A lot of information passed both ways, police to citizen/citizen to police, and we all look forward to working together to reduce crime in our area.

The group agreed to meet the last Tuesday of each month at the Workforce Development Center, starting with the 26th of August, at 6:30 pm. Some guidelines and ground rules were given and people signed up to be Block Captains and Watchers.

All the civic leagues and neighborhoods in the Greater Wards Corner Area Partnership are encouraged to send representatives to these meetings. As the criminal activity is pushed out of the West Little Creek Road area the other neighborhoods around should have watch programs in place to force the criminal activity out of the Greater Wards Corner Area.

The goals of the monthly meetings will be to:

  • Help each neighborhood develop a watch program tailored to it’s own needs and to offer support as needed.
  • Allow ideas and problems to be shared among the Partnership neighborhoods allowing us to work together as one to reduce crime.
  • Promote safer neighborhoods and retail areas for our residents to live, play and shop.
  • Make communication between communities and police more efficient and effective in reducing crime in the Partnership area.
  • Communicate to our elected officials in a larger and more unified voice the needs of the Partnership area to help reduce crime in our community.
  • Work in unison with the Greater Wards Corner Area Partnership general meeting group and the Wards Corner Task Force for the revitalization of the Wards Corner area.

Other areas of the city are currently working with the police to reduce crime in their neighborhoods and it is imperative that we move forward with this neighborhood watch program for the Partnership area or you may see an increase in criminal activity here. We want the criminals out of Norfolk not just moved around our city.

Thank you,

Tim Smith

Warrants issued for 2 men in Denby Park shooting

June 9, 2008

Pilot Online reports that warrants have been issued for the arrest of two suspects in yesterday’s shooting of a man in the 300 block of E. Little Creek Road. The suspects frequent Ashlawn Drive in Monticello Village and the “Texas” streets in Denby Park. The Wards Corner Partnership has identified both these areas as socially blighted since 1997. To date, the City has done little to help the good citizens of Denby Park and Monticello Village.


It was too good to be true

June 8, 2008

Denby Park has been relatively quiet lately as far as gun violence is concerned, but early this morning that quiet was shattered. Police Dispatchers were called at 3:45 a.m. to report a shooting in an apartment in the 300 block of E. Little Creek Road. Pilot Online reports

When officers arrived at the complex, they found a man suffering several gunshot wounds inside an apartment, Amos (police spokesman) said. The man was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with injuries that were considered life-threatening.

Amos said no suspect or motive information was available shortly before 4 a.m., Amos said.

The Wards Corner Partnership has repeatedly expressed its concern about the apartments in the 300 block of E. Little Creek Road. If there was ever an example of social blight, the 300 block would be the picture in the dictionary.
