Burglaries continue in northern Fauquier
Two more homes were broken into in northern Fauquier this week, continuing an ongoing rash of burglaries in the area.
Sheriff's deputies are investigating the burglaries, which they believe are related to other burglaries that have happened in the same time period in western Loudoun County. The burglaries in northern Fauquier County span from the end of October 2012 to mid-January 2013:
On Oct. 23, jewelry and silver were taken from a home in the 4000 block of Halfway Road during the early afternoon.
On Nov. 16, sterling silver and cash were taken from a home in the 1700 block of Halfway Road during the day.
On Dec. 13, jewelry was taken from a home in the 2700 block of Atoka Road during the day.
On Dec. 31, a cabin in the 3300 block of Bull Run Mountain Rd was broken into. Nothing was taken, but electronic equipment was tampered with.
On Dec. 31, jewelry, silver and a firearm were taken from a home in the 3700 block of Landmark Road between 6:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
On Jan. 14, silver was taken from a home in the 3400 block of Halfway Road during the day.
On Jan. 15, jewelry and silver were taken from a home in the 4200 block of Narrows Lane, off of Bunker Hill Road, some time between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.
In most of these burglaries, the homes were broken into with the same basic method: a window pane was broken in an exterior door and the deadbolt or other locking mechanism was unlocked to gain entry to the residence. In each of these incidents the residence was unoccupied at the time.
The sheriff's office urges residents in the area to be vigilant of their surroundings. Any person, vehicle or situation that seems out of the ordinary or suspicious should be reported immediately. Any unsolicited visitors to private property should be handled with caution and reported immediately to law enforcement.
