Commonwealth v. Daekwon C. Hargraves

Man Sentenced to 2 Years for March 2023 Wards Corner Burglaries

NORFOLK, Va. – Today, 26-year-old Daekwon Carlton Hargraves was sentenced in Norfolk Circuit Court to two years in prison for a string of burglaries he committed in the Wards Corner area earlier this year.

On March 25, just after 2 a.m., Mr. Hargraves burglarized the Guads at Granby restaurant. Norfolk Police detectives recovered surveillance footage which showed Mr. Hargraves breaking open a side door with a screwdriver and stealing hundreds of dollars in cash and two bottles of liquor.

On March 28, Mr. Hargraves burglarized the Wendy’s restaurant at 208 E. Little Creek Road. Surveillance video showed Mr. Hargraves forcing open the side door and stealing about $1,500 from a safe.

On March 30, just after 2 a.m., Mr. Hargraves burglarized La Botica Hispana at 7552 Virginian Drive. Norfolk Police detectives recovered surveillance footage in which Mr. Hargraves could be seen casing the store before committing the burglary. Later surveillance footage showed Mr. Hargraves breaking into the store through a window and stealing an iPhone and more than $200 dollars from a cash register.

On April 4, Mr. Hargraves was arrested in the Wards Corner area on a warrant from a neighboring city. Mr. Hargraves claimed to investigators that he had nothing to do with the recent string of burglaries in the area. Due to positive identifications of Mr. Hargraves from the available surveillance footage, Norfolk Police secured warrants against Mr. Hargraves in May for the Guads, Wendy's, and Botica Hispana burglaries.

Mr. Hargraves pleaded guilty on Aug. 15 to three counts of statutory burglary, one count of grand larceny, and two counts of petit larceny, and Norfolk Circuit Court Judge Jerrauld C. Jones accepted his plea. On Friday, Judge Jones sentenced Mr. Hargraves to two years in prison, with another nine years suspended on the conditions that Mr. Hargraves be of uniform good behavior for two years and complete one year of supervised probation upon his release.

“Our family-owned businesses are one of the backbones of our community, often working on narrow margins and under difficult circumstances,” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Ramin Fatehi. “These small businesses deserve to be safe from people who harm their work and steal from them, and we are glad to have held Mr. Hargraves accountable.”

Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Madeline C. Woodruff led the sentencing of Mr. Hargraves’ case on behalf of the Commonwealth, and Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney J. Drew Fairbanks served as the lead prosecutor. Norfolk Police Property Crimes Unit Detectives Kevin M. Gross and John A. Scraft Jr. served as the lead investigators.
