Furever Friday: Meet Pedro Pascal

jewel

Each week, we spotlight an adoptable pet from the Humane Society of Warren County.

This week we are featuring Pedro Pascal who came to the shelter as a stray. Pedro Pascal needed some medical attention and is better now but needs special food. Pedro Pascal is approximately 2 years old and a little hissy when meeting other cats. Slow introduction to other furry family members is recommended.

All adoptable cats and dogs at the humane society are altered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

All cats, dogs, and other small animals at the humane society are cared for by the Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic at 840 B John Marshall Highway Front Royal.

If you would like to give Pedro Pascal or any of his friends a forever home, please fill out an application at humanesocietywarrencounty.com.

Once you apply and are approved, a staff member will contact you with the next steps.

FCSO receives conformation of identity of recovered human remains

The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) announced that they have received confirmation of the identity of the recently recovered human remains.

The body that was recovered April 29 in the Southwest portion of Frederick County has now been positively  identified.

The Northern District Office of the Medical Examiner in Manassas confirmed it is the remains of Jason Abarca.

Abarca was the subject of a search after his possible involvement with a carjacking incident on December 13 in Winchester.

The vehicle reportedly taken by knifepoint was from a business on Berryville Avenue.

That vehicle was found wrecked and abandoned along Star Tannery Road with Abarca’s wallet and ID inside later that day.

The continued search for the driver using every possible apparatus and personnel from all available agencies were unsuccessful until April 29.

On that date a body was recovered in a wooded area of the county, in an advanced stage of decomposition.

The remains were then transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

A total of 78 people were involved in the search and recovery effort on April 29 alone.

Fredrick County Sheriff Lenny Millholland wishes to thank all parties involved in all aspects of the search and recovery effort.

The FCSO knows all the recovery effort helps to bring some sense of closure to Abarca’s friends and family.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department (BCSD) report an operation called Warrant Round Up.

On June 4 BCSD attempted to execute a total of 50 warrants that included various charges and crimes from all divisions of their agency.

The efforts will continue until all warrants are served.

People listed on the unserved warrants will be posted on the Sheriff Department’s Facebook page.

It is recommended that those offenders listed contact the BCSD to arrange a date and time to turn themselves in.

In the initial Warrant Round up June 4 8 arrests were made.

During one of the 8 arrests the subject attempted to evade arrest by hiding the attic of the residence.

The SWAT team was called in to continue the search due to safety concerns and the size of the residence.

Chemical Munitions were deployed into the attic a short time later authorities heard knocking and a male voice stating that was hiding in the wall.

The subject kicked a hole in the ceiling and was assisted down by waiting authorities and taken into custody.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Department would like the public to know that the remaining warrants will continue to be served until all arrest are made.

Winchester Public Schools will celebrate the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting of the recently renovated and expanded Douglas School on Saturday, June 8th at 10 am.

The former school located at 598 N Kent Street served black students during segregation in Winchester from 1927-1966.

After integration, the building was used as an intermediate, elementary and preschool before being deemed unsafe.

The City of Winchester provided funding in 2021 to begin the renovations to house the school system’s central office, a community space, and a museum on honoring the history of Douglas.

Saturday’s ceremony will include remarks from local leaders and alumni followed by a car show featuring vehicles from the school’s era of operation.

The building and museum will be open to guests and light refreshments will be served.
