Following a five-month investigation, a man from Silver Spring, Maryland, was arrested on Friday, Sept. 27, on two felony warrants of burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. A second suspect in the incident surrendered to the Fauquier Sheriff’s Office Oct. 8.
Charges are on file for one other co-conspirator, but they have not been arrested yet, according to Sgt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.
Hartman reported that on April 28 at 8:44 p.m. deputies responded to a home on Briar Lane in Delaplane for an alarm check. They found a home under construction; the front door had been kicked in.
He said that a U-Haul truck parked in the driveway did not belong to the homeowner or the contractor and the truck was rented out of the Rockville, Maryland, area.
The investigation led to charges against Alcides Rodriquez, 36: conspiracy to commit burglary/larceny at night and burglary at night to commit larceny. His bond was for $2,500; he is still in custody.
The second of the three suspects, Xiomara Murillos, 42, from Washington, D.C., is being held on a $10,000 bond. She is charged with conspiracy to commit breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit larceny or felony.
