Isle of Wight County, Va. – Authorities are searching for a man wanted for burglaries in Isle of Wight County.

Since September 18, 2014, there have been six burglaries in the Burwell’s Bay and Longview areas of Isle of Wight County. The burglaries occurred during the daytime hours, according to Sgt. Potter with the Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office.
