SANFORD, Va.- The Accomack County Sheriff's Office has announced the arrests of two more suspects in connection with a deadly home invasion that occurred late last month.

The latest arrest was made Friday, Sept. 6, when 20-year-old Titus Floyd Jr. of Mappsville was taken into custody and charged with armed burglary, robbery and brandishing a machete. He is being held without bond.

And on Thursday, Sept. 5, 22-year-old Leon O'Bryan Crippen of Temperanceville was arrested for armed burglary, robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a robbery. He is also being held without bond.

A third suspect, 26-year-old Lamesha Cropper, of Salisbury, Md., was taken into custody on Sept. 4 by the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office and is expected to be extradited to Accomack County to face the charges of robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a robbery and armed burglary.

The incident happened shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, when the Accomack County Sheriff's Office received reports of shots fired at a home on Marsh Market Road near Sanford.

While deputies and Virginia State troopers were responding to the Marsh Market Road location, they said additional reports were received that two gunshot victims were at the Corner Mart convenience store in Temperanceville. 

Deputies and rescue personnel responded to the Corner Mart scene and found the body of deceased male, as well as a female who was suffering from a gunshot wound.  Oak Hall Rescue transported the female to a local hospital for treatment. Investigators identified the deceased male as 23-year-old Master Caine Wesley Jr., of Nelsonia.  Wesley's body was transported to the Medical Examiner's Office in Norfolk where an autopsy was conducted on Thursday, Aug. 29. 

Police said an initial investigation into this incident has revealed that four suspects entered the Marsh Market Road home, which was occupied by several individuals, and during a robbery attempt, multiple gunshots were fired. 

Police said the investigation into this incident is continuing and the case will be forwarded to the Accomack County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office for determination as to any further charges.  Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at (757) 787-1131 or (757) 824-5666.  Tips may also be submitted via www.accomackcountysheriffsoffice.org.
