    Authorities release composite sketch of suspect involved in Taylorstown home invasion

    crime, robbery, Taylorstown
    The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office released this sketch today of one of four men suspected of robbing a Taylorstown family April 16.


    The suspects in the case are possibly driving a gold or tan Nissan SUV, possibly a 2003 Nissan Murano.


    The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office today released a sketch of one of four men that held a Taylorstown family against their will April 16 while they robbed their home.

    The suspects in the case, two white men and two black men, are possibly driving a gold or tan Nissan SUV, possibly a 2003 Nissan Murano, according to reports.

    Investigators have been searching for the men after they were called to the home in the 13400 block of Loyalty Road around 11:30 a.m. when the family was able to run to safety and call for help.

    The family, consisting of a mother, father, daughter and two grandchildren, reported that an unknown man knocked on their door and said he had a delivery. He then forced his way into the home along with three other men.

    The suspects brandished a weapon and the family was held against their will as the intruders removed items from the home. No one was injured during the robbery.

    The suspect in the composite sketch, a white man, is described as being 17 to 25 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with brown eyes and short black hair. He was described as having scruffy facial hair. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeved gray shirt with graffiti style writing and baggy jeans.

    The second white man was said to be in his mid-20’s with red hair, acne on his face, approximately 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall and 170 pounds. One of the black men was described as heavyset and was bald. The fourth suspect, also a black man, was described as having a thin build, approximately 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with an angular shaped face.

    The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with any information regarding this case, or anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area on April 16, to call Detective S. Cumberledge of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. Callers wishing to remain anonymous should call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. If the information provided to Loudoun Crime Solvers leads to an arrest and indictment, the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

    “If you have a better suggestion of where I can get my news…then I am all ears.”

    I don’t give advice to fools. If you believe Stephen Colbert presents news, then I can’t help you.

    @Scarlet Pimpernel
    (or is it Pcarlet Simpernel?)
    If you have a better suggestion of where I can get my news, sprinkied with a healthy amount of truthiness, then I am all ears.


    “If what was taken was related to a domestic dispute, the rest of us can still assume it safe to answer a knock on the door.”

    I’m wondering how Ed Myers came to such an asinine conclusion.  Home invasions, armed or not, are serious threats to public safety, period.

    “I don’t want to get into the victims’ personal business.”

    Then don’t.

    “Frank Jameso ” (or is it James Franco?), who, by his numerous responses to others on this site appears to get his news from Stephen Colbert, doesn’t have a coherent response, either.


    @Scarlet
    Well, because if they stole, let’s say gold necklaces, and your unemployed buddy is suddenly sporting a new herringbone chain it could be suspicious. Or your unemployed buddy asks if you want to buy a gun that you don’t recall him ever having, could raise some eyebrows.
    This whole thing is kind of suspicious. Why that particular house? Usually it seems, these things are tied to drugs. A dealer is robbed of their product, something like that. I agree, more info would be helpful.


    Home invasions while armed is a serious threat to public safety…if it was random.  If the home was targeted because it had something that few homes have, then the threat is lower.  If what was taken was related to a domestic dispute, the rest of us can still assume it safe to answer a knock on the door. I don’t want to get into the victims’ personal business except to the extent that it answers the question of who else might be at risk for this type of serious violent crime.


    “What the home invaders took would be key information for assessing the risk to the community.”

    Why?


    What the home invaders took would be key information for assessing the risk to the community.  Was it drugs, guns, money, or gold?
