Petit Larceny Charge Against Rowe To Be Dismissed

Mathews County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tom Bowen plans to drop a petit larceny charge against Board of Supervisors’ chairman Mike Rowe who is accused of taking a sign placed at Church & Court Streets by the Lane-Armistead Camp 1772 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Bowen tells the Gazette-Journal since the sign was not on private property it was in violation of county zoning ordinances and should be removed. A motion to dismiss will be filed next Monday in Mathews General District Court.
