• A Virginia man is being held under a $62,000 secured bond stemming from a trespassing incident involving a confrontation between two men which allegedly led to one being assaulted with a motor vehicle and shots being fired into it, according to Mount Airy Police Department reports.
Kyle Thomas Snow, 30, of 105 Homeplace Lane, Cana, engaged in the confrontation Friday morning with an acquaintance, Murphy Shawn Jones, at the latter’s home on Fancy Gap Road, police records show.
