    Seven charged in connection with western Loudoun burglaries

    The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office announced today it closed 14 burglary cases dating as far back as April 2012.

    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.

    Charles J. Shirley, 32, of Martinsburg, W.Va., is charged with five burglaries across the Lovettsville, Purcellville and Leesburg areas from April to June 2012.

    He is also charged with a Lovettsville robbery attempt in August 2012. Shirley is held at the Middle River Regional Jail on unrelated charges.

    Samuel L. Green, 32, and Cory L. Jackson, 26, both of Harper's Ferry, W.Va., are charged with an April 2012 burglary near Purcellville. Jackson was released on a $5,000 bond and Green turned himself over to authorities and was released by on his own recognizance.

    Kenneth D. Dye, 44, of Brunswick Md., was charged with grand larceny of an item from a Purcellville home in June 2012. Dye was released on a $2,500 bond.

    Jonathan D. Ruifrok, 30, of Leesburg, was charged with the June 2012 burglary of three Hamilton homes. Ruifrok is still at large.

    Damian S. Falero, 29, of Farmville and Ronald J. Brown, 27, of North Chesterfield, are charged with two burglaries near Leesburg and one in Middleburg in January. Falero is held in Riverside Regional Jail on unrelated charges. Brown is held in Henrico County on unrelated charges.
