For Immediate Release
Tron Dwayne Terry, Sr. of Lynchburg was tried by jury on April 30, 2007 on
eighteen charges to include two counts of abduction, three counts of
robbery, three counts of malicious wounding, burglary while armed with a
deadly weapon and nine firearms charges.
The jury convicted Terry of nine of the charges: both abductions, two
robberies, unlawful wounding and four firearms charges, recommending that he
serve twenty nine years and six months for these offenses.
The Commonwealth’s evidence established that Terry, along with two other
accomplices, approached two men in the parking lot of the Greenbriar
Apartments in the early morning hours of August 14, 2006 at gunpoint forcing
them into an upstairs apartment where several occupants were then robbed and
pistol whipped. After receiving a 911 call from a neighbor, officers of the
Lynchburg Police Department arrived on scene during the robbery. This
defendant and his accomplices escaped the apartment by shattering its’
sliding glass door, but were apprehended by the police in the apartment
courtyard with the victims’ stolen property.
The jury deliberated for approximately four hours before returning with
guilty verdicts on nine of the eighteen charges. Terry will be formally
sentenced by J. Leyburn Mosby on August 10, 2007.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney, Gretchen Hutt.
