HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — After tactical teams and federal agents raided a Hampton home connected to a gun investigation in Chesterfield County, 10 On Your Side uncovered a string of violent crimes linked to the same address.
On Monday, Hampton’s SWAT team helped serve a warrant on 404 Greenbriar Avenue, alongside Chesterfield County police and ATF agents. Investigators say they recovered six stolen guns linked to the Chesterfield case, and detained two people for questioning. The investigation also yielded four arrests in Newport News Monday.
On Tuesday, Hampton police confirmed they had also served a second warrant on the home in search of gang activity evidence.
Since 2010, Hampton investigators have searched 404 Greenbriar Avenue five additional times, and court documents show every search was related to violent crimes. The offenses include malicious wounding, maiming, robbery, gun violations, gang participation, and even murder.
In May of 2013, Hampton police say two teenagers shot five people at the Hampton Coliseum Carnival. Four survived, but 16-year-old Raphael Davis died.
Two days after the murder, police served a warrant on 404 Greenbriar Avenue, which investigators listed as the home of their suspects, a 15-year-old named only by his initials, RRT.
Later that summer, police arrested and charged a teenager with matching initials, Ryan Taybron, in the murder. Taybron walked after prosecutors say eyewitnesses stopped cooperating, and their case fell apart. The judge ruled, however, that prosecutors could bring the charges against Taybron again, if new evidence was found.
Hampton’s Circuit Court clerk has not yet released the search warrants served Monday at 404 Greenbriar Avenue. You can count on 10 On Your Side to bring you those details when the warrants become available.
