Arrests made in April home invasion
Four suspects are now in custody, charged with the April home invasion in Taylorstown, a small community in northern Loudoun County.
Roman S. Monzon, Mark A. Hoy and John A. Day, all 19, have each been charged with breaking and entering to commit robbery, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and abduction.
A fourth suspect, a juvenile at the time of his arrest but now aged 18, is also in custody. Charged with abduction and breaking and entering, the teen’s name has been withheld.
The home invasion, which unnerved the small Taylorstown community, occurred around 11:30 a.m. April 16. A family on Loyalty Road answered their door and one of the burglars forced his way into the home. The intruders pulled a gun on the family of five and held the family against their will as they stole items from the house. After the men left the home, one of the family members was able to run to a nearby home and call police.
No one was injured in the robbery.
The suspects were connected to the case in May 2013 when deputies with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office discovered information linking the Taylorstown home invasion to a burglary in their jurisdiction.
Monzon, Hoy and the unidentified teenager are awaiting extradition from Frederick, Md. Dey is pending extradition from Pennsylvania, where he was apprehended in a Fayetteville hotel.
“I applaud the hard work being done jointly by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office and the Pennsylvania State Police, to track down these criminals,” said Pennsylvania State Police Lieutenant Robert Johnson. “These men terrorized a family and deserve to be prosecuted to the full extent that the law allows for this type of crime.”
According to a release from the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office, a fifth suspect is believed to be connected with the home invasion and the investigation is continuing.
