    Man arrested for fraudulently collecting for military charity

    William Pierce

    A Sterling man has been charged with obtaining money by false pretenses after posing as a worker for a local military charity.

    William R. Pierce, 52, was arrested May 23.

    Pierce was claiming to be collecting money for the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit he is not affiliated with. The charges stem from an incident in late April, which occurred at a business in Chantilly. Pierce may have solicited other businesses and has gone by the name Randy.

    The Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation was set up by the surviving family of Green, a 2006 Potomac Falls alum who was killed in Afghanistan in 2011. The foundation raises money to provide “comfort and support” for military members and their families.

    Pierce is currently being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

    If you believe you were a victim of this suspect, you are asked to contact Det. C. Perinis of the LCSO Financial Crimes Unit, at 703-777-0475.
