Seven charged in connection with western Loudoun burglaries
Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman said 49 charges have been leveled against seven people in connections with the crimes.
"The investigation determined that there was not just one suspect, but four independent groups committing burglaries during the same time-frame," Chapman said.
Of the seven charged, four worked together in pairs while the other three worked alone. In most cases, residences were broken into and jewelry, money, electronics and firearms were stolen.
