Alexandria man charged with trespassing and drug possession after his mom asks police to investigate intruder

A 26-year-old Alexandria man faces drug and trespassing charges after his mother asked police to search her home in the northeast section of the city.

The man was arrested on Sunday, Dec. 5, after a series of events that began the previous night.

On Sunday afternoon, the suspect’s ex-girlfriend made a walk-in confession to burglary and destruction of property to the Fairfax County Police Department. The woman told police that she entered the home between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., and she said that she went after her ex refused her request to pick up some of her belongings, according to a search warrant.

The woman told police that the front door of the home was unlocked, and that she accidentally shattered a bathroom sink with a soap dispense, according to the warrant. The woman then walked into the living room, where she told police she saw suspected cocaine on a table.

The woman, who was not arrested or charged, also admitted to throwing a dart and shattering a living room window.

Police contacted the homeowner, the suspect’s mother, and she told police that she asked her son to leave the house a week before the incident. Police then observed someone in the home, and the suspect’s mother said that the home should be empty and asked them to conduct a search.

The man was arrested and released the same day on a $1,500 bond and was charged with trespassing and possession of Schedule I/II drugs. He goes to court on Jan. 28.
