Pair charged with hunting crimes

MAURERTOWN -- Two men were recently charged with crimes related to hunting on property where the activity was not permitted.

Alan Dale Leep, 60, of 92 Dodson Road, Mt. Jackson, and Randall M. Stottlemyer, 41, of 815 Burke Hill Road, Maurertown, were charged based on the Nov. 13 incident in the 500 block of Burke Road, said Maj. Scott Proctor, of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office. The property owner reported people trespassing and hunting in the area, and it's clearly marked "no trespassing," he said.

Stottlemyer had given permission to Leep and another person to hunt, Proctor said, even though he did not have that authority.

He was charged with instigating others to trespass.

Leep, who was arrested Nov. 18 and had his residence searched, faces a more serious charge.

In addition to trespassing, he was charged with possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony.

Both men are scheduled to appear Jan. 28 in General District Court.
