Loudoun County, VA –

Richard A. Hughes, 35 and Jacquelyn Hueg, 27, both of Purcellville, VA were connected to six burglaries in the Purcellville area of Loudoun County. 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.
