    UPDATED: Sheriff’s Office investigating rash of western Loudoun burglaries

    The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a series of possibly related burglaries in western Loudoun that have netted the thieves jewelry and electronics.

    Since November there have been five burglaries that detectives believe are connected, according to Liz Mills, spokesperson for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

    The first occurred Nov. 16 in the 1700 block of Halfway Road in Middleburg where cash and silver were stolen from a home.

    Two more were thefts were reported in Hamilton from homes on Harmony Church Road on Dec. 5 and Dec. 10. In those cases, jewelry and silver were stolen.

    The most recent cases were reported Jan. 17 from a home in the 22600 block of Foxcroft Road in Middleburg when between 2 and 3:30 p.m. someone broke a front door glass panel to get into the residence. A firearm and digital camera equipment were stolen.

    This burglary, Mills said, was similar to another incident that was reported at 2:40 p.m. the same day on Watson Road. In that case, jewelry and digital cameras were stolen.

    Although deputies are not sure it’s related, another burglary was reported that day in the 39700 block of Lime Kiln Road in Leesburg. The break-in left the homeowner without small electronics.

    Mills said there have been several similar cases reported near the Loudoun County line in Fauquier County dating back to late last year. Detectives are working with Fauquier County authorities to determine if they’re related.

    “They started in Fauquier County and started to trickle over in to Loudoun County,” Mills said.

    Most of the burglaries occurred during the day while residents were not at home.

    The Sheriff’s Office has scheduled a meeting for residents to discuss the burglaries and burglary prevention for 7 p.m. Jan. 31 Banneker Elementary School in Middleburg.

    The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is asking residents to keep their doors and windows locked and to activate, if available, a security alarm when they’re not a home.
