Fairfax County man arrested for three burglaries, released three days later

A 58-year-old Fairfax County man was arrested and charged with three counts of burglary and three counts of conspiracy to commit burglary against businesses in Alexandria.

The suspect was booked into the Alexandria jail on Feb. 26 and released on personal recognizance on March 1.

According to police, on Feb. 3, police responded to an alarm call just after midnight at the Exxon gas station at 501 South Washington Street. A windowpane to a service bay garage door and another interior glass door were shattered. Security footage captured two suspects forcing their way into the business and attempting to break into the cash register, although nothing was stolen.

That same morning at around 2:30 a.m., the cash register was stolen from the Bloomers undergarments store in Old Town, according to a search warrant. A window was smashed and the cash register was stolen. Security camera footage showed two suspects committing the crime, and their descriptions matched the suspects from the Exxon station incident.

Also on Feb. 3, the owner of Charlene’s Kitchen reported that there was a burglary at her business just before 2 a.m. The suspects were captured on video entering the business through an open window. A number of items were placed in a truck and the suspects drove away.

Police determined that the suspect is the owner of the truck, and found that he has a number of previous charges for burglary and had made multiple pawn transactions.

The other suspect was not arrested.
