    Ashburn man charged with burglary

    An Ashburn man was arrested Tuesday after he broke into an Ashburn home and was caught by its owner.

    Richard F. Whatley, 35, was charged with burglary and destruction of property, according to Loudoun County Sheriff's Office reports.

    Deputies responded to a 9:41 p.m. call for a report of a suspicious person who entered the home in the 42500 block of Regal Wood Drive.

    A resident of the home ordered the man out and a brief struggle ensued after Whatley refused to leave, according to reports.

    A resident of a second home less than a half-mile away in the 42500 block of Magellan Square reported someone attempted to break in earlier that day between 6:45 and 7:30 p.m. In that incident, a resident found the locks to his garage and the front door were damaged. However, the burglar failed to gain access to the home.

    It's not known at this time if two incidents are related.
