Three men wanted in connection with an incident in Pittsylvania County are suspected of being in the Henry County-Martinsville area, according to Devin Taylor, crime analyst with the Pittsylvania Sheriff’s Office.
Warrants for the three men — Kevin Darel Preston, Charles “C.J.” Flood Jr. and Delano Cook — have been issued on charges of robbery and breaking and entering with intent to commit robbery, according to a release from the Pittsylvania Sheriff’s Office.
The charges stem from a July 24 incident, the release stated.

Deputies responded to the scene, and the victim later was transported to Memorial Hospital in Martinsville for treatment.
The victim later told Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s investigators that four men had entered his home, beat him, attempted to bind him with duct tape and stole money from his home, the release stated.
One man, DaShaye Simon, was taken into custody by the Henry County Sheriff’s office, the release stated. Simon is being held without bond in the Pittsylvania County Jail.
Three other men are at large, according to the release.
Preston, 24, is described as a black male who weighs about 180 pounds and is 6 feet, 3 inches tall, according to the release.
Flood, 21, is described as a black male with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs about 165 pounds, the release stated.
Cook, 18, is a black male with black hair and brown eyes, about 6 fet tall and weighing about 200 pounds, according to the release.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of any of the three individuals is asked to contact Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Investigator Molly Motley at (434) 432-7931 or
