Police: James City County man charged after stealing roommate's video game system

A James City County man has been charged after police say he stole his roommate’s video game system.

Alexander Clarke Durant, 26, has been charged with grand larceny and obtaining money by false pretenses, according to Williamsburg Police Department spokesman Maj. Greg Riley.

On Nov. 13, a man approached a patrolling Williamsburg police officer and told him his video game system had been stolen, Riley said.

The investigating officer later determined Durant, the man’s roommate, as a suspect in the theft, according to Riley.

The officer obtained arrest warrants for Durant on Dec. 3, Riley said. The warrants remain outstanding as of 9:05 a.m. on Dec. 4.
