The hunt for two more suspects continued Thursday morning along Nordix Drive in the Warrenton Lakes subdivision.
Authorities arrested one suspect and continued the manhunt for two others Thursday morning after an attempted predawn burglary at the BP convenience store at Lee Highway and Cedar Run Drive just north of Warrenton.
Authorities arrested Anthony Price, 34, of Washington, D.C.
“A Fauquier County sheriff’s detective arrested and charged Anthony Price, 34, of Washington D.C., for attempted burglary, eluding, destruction of property, reckless driving, possession of burglary tools and grand larceny,” Sgt. Steve Lewis said.
That detective “came across an attempted burglary in progress at a business in the 6400 block of Lee Highway,” Sgt. Lewis wrote in a press release. “The detective attempted to make contact with the suspect. The suspect then fled from the scene and a short pursuit ensued. The vehicle stopped, and three male subjects fled on foot.”
Deputies quickly set up a perimeter, with sheriff’s and state police joining the search.
“A Virginia State Police trooper and his partner K9 Duke located and apprehended Price and he was taken into custody,” Sgt. Lewis said.
The search for the other suspects continued late Thursday morning. Sgt. Lewis described them, both in dark clothing, as:
• A Black man about 6 feet tall and 175 pounds.
• A light-skinned Black male about 5-feet-9 and 185 pounds.
Warrenton police, a Warren County K9 unit and a Fairfax police helicopter joined the search in and around the Warrenton Lakes subdivision.
