Daytime burglary spree spans 2 counties, 2 months

Fauquier and Loudoun sheriff’s deputies continue to investigate a series of possibly connected burglaries spanning two counties over two months.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office last month released security system video (above) of the possible suspect, described as a black man with a mustache.

The first two burglaries took place Jan. 10 in western Loudoun County. The suspect entered a homes in the 37000 block of Grubstake Farm Lane in Purcellville and the 39000 block of Charles Town Pike in Hamilton.

The Grubstake Farm Lane security video shows the suspect knocking on the front door of the home after backing a white sedan into the driveway. After waiting briefly to determine if anyone was home, he forced entry through a rear door. The suspect left with a rifle and drove away in the white sedan.

Three additional burglaries and an attempted burglary took place Feb. 3 along the Route 17 corridor north of Warrenton. Those crimes took place at homes in the:

• 4800 block of O’Bannon Road.

• 7400 block of Drake Drive.

• 6400 block of James Madison Highway.

• 5300 block of James Madison Highway near Great Meadow.

Witnesses reported seeing a possible suspect and a car that matched the description from the Loudoun County burglary on Grubstake Farm Lane. 

Two more burglaries took place Feb. 6 in the Aldie area of Loudoun County.

The suspect entered a home in the 39000 block of John Mosby Highway and removed two handguns from a safe.

A similar burglary took place in the 38000 block of John Mosby Highway, where jewelry was stolen from a home.

Investigators believe all of the burglaries took place in daylight and, in most of the cases, the suspect forced entry through a rear door.     
         
Authorities ask anyone with information about the possible identity of the suspect to call:

• Detective Candyce Shaw of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s office at 540-347-3300. 

• Detective T. Sheffer of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-737-8203.
