    A Vienna man was sentenced Jan. 14 to four years in prison for breaking into an Ashburn home and stealing $10,000 in jewelry.

    Loudoun Judge Burke F. McCahill sentenced Nicholas Golden, 27, to 10 years with six years suspended in the Virginia Department of Corrections in connection with the January 2012 burglary.

    Golden pleaded guilty to felony breaking and entering on Aug. 30 in Loudoun County Circuit Court.

    According to reports from the Loudoun Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, Golden was stopped on Jan. 9, 2012, by a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was responding to reports of a suspicious man walking around the golf course and in between houses in the Belmont area of Ashburn.

    Golden told the deputy he was a convicted felon and was on probation for a drug distribution charge.

    The deputy searched Golden’s bag and found a Barnes and Noble Nook e-reader and approximately $10,000 worth of jewelry. It was later determined the items were stolen from a house less than a few hundred yards from where Golden was stopped.

    McCahill also re-imposed a two year and five month sentence that had been suspended for a 2008 drug distribution charge.

    “Thanks to alert neighbors and the Sheriff’s Office quick response, all of the stolen items were able to be returned to their owner in good condition” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman in a prepared statement. “While this case had a favorable outcome for the victim, not everyone is so fortunate.”

    He should of hit 2 car while driving drunk then he would only have to pay a 381 dollar fine.


    Mr. Golden should have stolen $485,000 from the Udvar Hazy parking system, not some measly 10K in jewelry. Then he would have gotten less than two years, not the four he’s now facing!
