 Loudoun County, VA (February 14, 2020): Two Loudoun County men are in custody after a series of commercial burglaries in the Sterling area this week and were connected to two other thefts from earlier this year.

          Mark C. Judy, II, 30, and Joseph T. Walthall, 33, both of Sterling were charged in connection with burglaries at four locations between February 9 and February 10. The locations include Sterling Vapez on E. Holly Avenue, the Sunoco on Davis Drive, the Sunoco on Church Road, and Honest Tom’s Auto Care on Shepard Drive. The two burglars were also connected to two earlier cases at the Prime Mart on W. Church Road. The first incident was reported on January 29 with a second theft occurring on February 2nd.

          “The arrests of these two men is a credit to the collaborative efforts between our patrol deputies and station detectives who shared vital information to solve these crimes and remove these serial burglars from our streets,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.

          Both men are charged with three counts of burglary, two counts of attempted burglary, and five counts of conspiracy to commit a burglary. Walthall was also charged with simple assault for an incident unrelated to the burglaries. Judy and Walthall remain held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.
