Man accused of robbing a mailman in Virginia Beach speaks from jail

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Three suspects are being held at the Virginia Beach Jail, accused of robbing a mailman on January 14.

34-year-old Willie Smith, Jr., 27-year-old Trevar Lemon and 26-year-old William Nesmith are all being held without bond in jail.

Virginia Beach Police said at 2 p.m., a mailman was robbed near the Town Center Apartments. The postal employee opened his mail truck door and was met by suspect number one, who was wearing a blue track suit and mask, according to the documents.

The documents state the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded packages from the truck.

They say a second suspect showed up and took a tray of packages. Then, the two got into a car driven by a third suspect and took off.


Nesmith was arrested several weeks later but says he was home in Norfolk the day of the robbery.
