Arrests made in convenience store robbery

The Winchester Police Department (WPD) has arrested Patrick Brian Goodman, 31 of Winchester, Virginia and Shelby Lynn Cave, 37, of Bunker Hill, West Virginia following a comprehensive investigation conducted by the WPD Criminal Investigations Division into the recent robbery of a convenience store.


On December 31, 2020, at approximately 1:00 a.m., the Winchester Police Department (WPD) responded to 7-Eleven, located at 705 N. Loudoun St., for an armed robbery that just occurred.  Responding officers immediately established a perimeter and used a K9 to attempt to locate the suspect, who was last observed fleeing the scene on foot.  However, the suspect was not located on the night of the incident.  


It was determined Goodman entered the store, approached the clerk, pulled out a firearm, and demanded money, to which the clerk complied. Cave awaited in a getaway vehicle and drove the two away from the scene.  A Glock BB-Gun, shattered into several pieces, was recovered by WPD detectives along N. Frederick Pike in Frederick County later in the investigation.  The money has not been recovered.   


Goodman and Cave have been charged with Robbery, in violation of Virginia Code 18.2-58.  Both were incarcerated at the Northwest Regional Adult Detention Center, on unrelated charges, at the time the warrants were served. They are being held without bond.  The WPD appreciates the assistance received from many law enforcement agencies throughout the investigation and the information received from the public that helped identify the suspects.
