Multiple homes were burglarized in Remington yesterday afternoon. After quick action by Fauquier deputies, two adult males face felony charges and a juvenile accomplice is in custody.
Around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 1, deputies responded to the 7000 block of Justin Court in the Remington area for a report of several male individuals attempting to gain entry into a residence, according to a release from Lt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office.
The caller said he had just arrived home from work when he answered a knock at the front door. A black male individual asked suspicious questions and then left. The caller walked back through the residence and observed a white male on the rear deck looking through the door window and holding the door knob, according to Hartman.
This second person immediately fled. The caller then saw a third person, a white male, who appeared to be acting as a lookout, according to the release.
Deputies arrived quickly and began to canvass the area. While questioning neighbors, deputies learned that at least one other home had been entered and other burglaries were attempted.
Investigation led deputies and detectives to a nearby residence on Helm Drive where the two adult suspects matching witness descriptions were located, according to Hartman.
During questioning, a neighbor called reporting another male walking a nearby trail in his underwear. Deputies located him as he was attempting to change clothes on the trail. This third suspect, a minor, matched witness descriptions.
The two 18-year-old men from Remington, Derieck Rakeem-Allen Prince and Bradley Russell Lewis, face felony charges of breaking and entering and grand larceny and a misdemeanor charge of destruction of property.
Officials are detaining the juvenile on unrelated outstanding charges. Criminal charges for this incident are pending.
The investigation into this matter is ongoing. Anyone who may have witnessed these suspects and have not talked with law enforcement is encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office.
