Fauquier sheriff’s detectives early Wednesday morning charged a Maryland man with the recent, daytime burglary of a home near Upperville.

A rash of similar burglaries has taken place recently in northern Fauquier and western Loudoun counties.

Theodore Roosevelt Bailey, 62, of Capitol Heights, Md., faces felony charges of burglary and possession of burglary tools, according to Sgt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office. The charges stem from the break-in at a home on Mount Airy Road west of Upperville around noon Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Sheriff Bob Mosier announced the arrest Wednesday night in a special meeting in The Plains to discuss the burglaries. About 75 people attended that meeting at Grace Episcopal Church and the sheriff’s office streamed it live on Facebook.

“Bailey was located in Alexandria and taken into custody without incident,” Sgt. Hartman said in a press release Wednesday night. “Bailey was taken before a magistrate and is being held in the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center with no bond.”

“He is a suspect in the other daytime burglaries that have occurred in the area,” but authorities have placed no charges in those cases, Sgt. Hartman said Thursday morning.

Over the past several weeks, a series of daytime break-ins and attempted burglaries have taken place in Route 17 corridor between Warrenton and Great Meadow. Several burglaries also have taken place along Route 50 corridor near Upperville in both Fauquier and Loudoun counties.

Detectives still want to talk with citizens who have information about the cases and/or home security system video that could help.

Sheriff Mosier will conduct a regularly-scheduled town hall meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, at Buchanan Hall in Upperville.
