UPDATED: 2/16/17 Clarke County Burglary Could be Connected to Others in Fauquier County
16 February 2017 News
Clarke County Sheriff’s Office has been exploring the possibility that a robbery reported on February 9, in the county, could be tied to a recent series of break-ins in Fauquier County.
Early Wednesday morning, February 15, the subject was captured. Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office Deputies have charged Theodore Roosevelt Bailey, 62, of Capital Heights, MD with burglary and possession of burglary tools.
He was taken into custody without incident in Alexandria, VA. He is currently being held without bond at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center. Fauquier County detectives are still working with other counties, investigating possible connections to cases Bailey may have been involved in.
A burglary was reported to the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office last week on Thursday February 9. The incident occurred at a home on Nelson Road in the southern part of the county. The owner of the home was at work during the time of the incident. The owner noticed items with value were missing upon arriving home from work.
A description of the suspect was reported by a neighbor of the looted home. They described the individual as an African American male in a work jacket. He was reported to have been driving a silver SUV, possibly with Maryland tags. The description allegedly matches a suspect in a string of robberies in Fauquier and Loudon Counties. Security camera photos from incidents in Fauquier County captured images of the suspect.
If you have any information on these cases please contact the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office at (540)955-1234.
The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information regarding a series of daytime residential burglaries that occurred between Friday, February 3, 2017 and Thursday, February 9, 2017 between the Warrenton and Upperville area. …
Forced entry was made into the residences. A newer model white four-door sedan, possibly a 2016 Nissan Sentra, was witnessed in the area and is a suspicious vehicle of interest. The vehicle was occupied by a thin black male, approximately 40 years old. The male was last seen wearing a green jacket, brown work pants that appeared dirty, boots, and a navy stocking cap.
Investigation has linked similar burglaries with the same suspect in Loudoun County, and possibly Clarke County.
