Two people have been charged in connection to a string of burglaries in western Loudoun County, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives with the LCSO, in coordination with the Purcellville Police Department, are investigating the involvement of the two residents in connection with a series of burglaries that spanned over the past two months.

Richard A. Hughes, 35, and Jacquelyn Hueg, 27, both of Purcellville, were connected to six burglaries in the Purcellville area. Hughes is charged currently in Loudoun County with two counts of burglary and one count of grand larceny, attempted burglary, possession of burglarious tools, conspiracy to commit a burglary and narcotic possession. Hueg is charged with grand larceny.

Additional charges are also pending from the Hardy County Sheriff’s Office in West Virginia.

Authorities have been investigating the involvement of Hughes and Hueg in the June 28 and July 7 burglary of a business located in the 18000 block of Lincoln Road; the June 28, July 5 and July 25 burglary of a business in the 100 block of E. Main Street; the July 6 grand larceny of a business in the 200 block of North 21st Street; and the July 13 burglary of a business located in the 100 block of W. Main Street.

The suspects were at one time previous employees of the businesses they are alleged to have targeted, according to LCSO.

Hughes and Hueg were apprehended on July 24 in the town of Purcellville after officers observed the two, acting in concert, attempting to gain entry into a business in the 100 block of E. Main Street. Hughes currently remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center with no bond.
