Four people charged in Ashburn larceny cases

Three adults and a juvenile have been charged in connection with an auto theft and vehicle tamperings in Loudoun County last month, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, and they are believed to be connected to a series of larcenies and gunfire complaints in the region.

On Sept. 11, LCSO deputies responded to the area of Heather Mews Drive in the Grange at Willowsford community of Ashburn for a report of people possibly entering vehicles. A vehicle located in the area was determined to have been stolen from the 21000 block of Lady Fern Place in Ashburn. A search ensued, including one that involved the use of the Fairfax County Police Department helicopter.

Two suspects were eventually located in the area. Justin E. Rubianes, 21, of Reston, and the juvenile were both charged on Sept. 11 with grand larceny (auto theft), receiving stolen property (firearm) and grand larceny from a vehicle. The name of the teenager cannot be released due to the fact he is a juvenile.

The continued investigation identified two additional suspects in the thefts. Onan G. Nunez, 19, of Ashburn, and Bryan H. Sandoval, 19, of Reston, were charged with grand larceny (auto theft), receiving stolen property (firearm), and grand larceny from a vehicle.

Since Sept. 11, detectives with the LCSO have worked in coordination with the Fairfax County Police Department and conducted multiple search warrants in both Loudoun and Fairfax counties. The search warrants recovered multiple firearms, ammunition and other items that are believed to have been stolen from vehicles.

Detectives believe the suspects were involved in a series of larcenies over the past several months targeting vehicles in both Loudoun and Fairfax. As part of the continuing investigation, several more arrests have been made in Fairfax County.

The case remains under investigation and additional charges and arrests are likely, LCSO officials reported.


Maybe the BoS ought to put a bond on the ballot for LCSO upgrades. This would be no different than bonds for fire stations needing new equipment.

It is probably cheaper for the county to call FFX than to buy it’s own.

When is Loudoun county going to get our very own helicopter?  it must be embarrassing for the sheriffs office to have to asked to borrow Fairfax’s.  I say LoCo will have a shiny new one before the end of 2018.
