Theodore Roosevelt Bailey
A Maryland man has been taken into custody and is suspected of committing multiple burglaries in Loudoun and Fauquier counties, according to the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities on Wednesday charged Theodore Roosevelt Bailey, 62, of Capitol Heights, Maryland, with burglary and possession of burglarious tools, both of which felonies. Bailey was located in Alexandria and taken into custody without incident. He was taken before a magistrate and is being held in the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center with no bond.

Over the past several weeks, numerous homes in western Loudoun and Fauquier have been broken into during the daytime along the Rt 17 corridor, according to Fauquier County officials.

The first two burglaries in the series were reported on Jan. 10 in western Loudoun County. The suspect entered a home in the 37000 block of Grubstake Farm Lane in Purcellville and the 39000 block of Charles Town Pike in Hamilton. The suspect was seen on surveillance video at the Grubstake Farm Lane burglary knocking on the front door of the home. After waiting a short period of time to determine if anyone was home, he forced entry through a rear door. The suspect left the home with a rifle and is seen driving away in a four door white sedan.

Three additional burglaries and an attempted burglary were reported on Feb. 3 in Fauquier County. The burglaries occurred in the 4800 block of O’Bannon Road, the 7400 block of Drake Drive, and the 6400 block of James Madison Highway. An attempted burglary was also reported in the 5300 block of James Madison Highway near Great Meadow. Witnesses reported seeing a possible suspect and vehicle that matched the description from the Loudoun County burglary on Grubstake Farm Lane.

Two additional burglaries were reported on Feb. 6 in the Aldie area of Loudoun County. The suspect entered a home in the 39000 block of John Mosby Highway and removed two handguns from a safe. A similar burglary was reported in the 38000 block of John Mosby Highway where jewelry was stolen from a home.

All of the burglaries are believed to have occurred during the daytime hours and in most of the cases the suspect forced entry through a rear door.

Fauquier detectives are continuing a joint investigation with Loudoun detectives and other jurisdictions to investigate the other burglaries.

Anyone with information regarding the crimes is urged to call the Fauquier Sheriff's Office at 540-347-3300 or Crime Solvers at 540-349-1000.

Good job. 

I know one of the people burgled in this string of thefts so I’m pleased to see what looks like a good arrest. I hope they do have the right guy and I hope he’s unable to do this sort of thing again for quite some time.
