Sterling men arrested for burglary

Two Sterling men were arrested Tuesday while breaking into a home in the 200 block of East Stanton Avenue.

Michael W. Jenkins, 22, and Shane C. Peterman, 26, were charged with burglary with intent to commit a felony or larceny. Peterman was also charged with drunk in public, according to a Loudoun County Sheriff's Office report released Friday.

Deputies were called to the home about 1:30 a.m. by a resident who said he heard someone knocking on the door. He then said he saw a flashlight pointed through a window and barricaded himself inside a bathroom, where he called 9-1-1.

As the resident was speaking to dispatchers, he heard breaking glass, believing the men were inside his home.

Deputies quickly responded to the home and established a perimeter after the men were seen running from the home's backyard.

The men were found in the area of South Buckingham and East Tazewell roads.

“The resident provided accurate and and timely information while ensuring his own safety,” said Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman in a prepared statement.. “Combined with our deputies’ quick response in establishing a perimeter, we were able to apprehend these suspects before they could commit more crimes in the county.”
