The suspect was caught on video surveillance.
Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance images today of a suspect possibly involved in a series of larcenies targeting Northern Virginia cellphone stores.

Two recent cases in Loudoun County saw a suspect enter a Verizon store in Ashburn and a second store in Sterling and steal iPhones and smart watches. The latest incident was reported on Jan. 19, when the suspect entered the store in the Ashburn Shopping Plaza around 7:30 p.m. and fled the store with several items. The previous day, a suspect with a similar description entered the Verizon store in the Towncenter Plaza in Sterling around 7:15 p.m. and stole two iPhones from the display case, LCSO officials said.

The suspect, who was caught on video surveillance is described as a black male in his late teens to early 20s, 5’7” tall and wears a baseball hat, a red/orange hooded winter coat and jeans.
