Patrick County Clerk of Court Sherri Mitchell Hazlewood, has been arrested twice in two weeks. This time she was jailed without bond. Hazlewood, 54, of Claudville, was arrested late Saturday night on charges of breaking and entering and destruction of property, according to a news release from Patrick County Sheriff Dan Smith. Smith stated the incident began when a concerned citizen contacted the 911 center at 10:40 PM and requested that deputies check Hazlewood’s well-being. Lieutenant Dustin Foley and Deputy Cody Fortner responded and arrived at Hazlewood’s apartment on Big Dan Lake Road at approximately 11 PM. Smith said during the course of the interaction with Hazlewood, deputies discovered that a breaking and entering had allegedly occurred to a building on the property. Contents inside of the building had been thrown onto the floor, and damage had allegedly been done to an interior wall. Hazlewood was arrested and jailed in the Patrick County Jail. The sheriff said the breaking and entering is a felony, and less than $1000 in damage was done to the interior of the building. Hazlewood was arrested the week prior on possession of cocaine charges in Bland County.
