Four Charged in Auto Theft, Larceny Cases in Ashburn
Suspects Possibly Linked to Additional Larcenies, Gunfire in Loudoun & Fairfax Counties

Loudoun County, VA – Three adults and a juvenile are charged in connection with an auto theft and vehicle tamperings in Loudoun County last month and are believed to be connected to a series of larcenies and gunfire complaints in the region.
       
On September 11, Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of Heather Mews Drive in the Grange at Willowsford community of Ashburn for a report of possible suspects entering vehicles. A vehicle located in the area was determined to have been stolen from the 21000 block of Lady Fern Place in Ashburn.  A search ensued, to include use of the Fairfax County Police Department helicopter.
       
After an extensive search two suspects were located in the area. Justin E. Rubianes, 21, of Reston and the juvenile were both charged on September 11 with grand larceny (auto theft), receiving stolen property (firearm), and grand larceny from a vehicle. The name of the teenager cannot be released due to the fact he is a juvenile.
         
The continued investigation identified two additional suspects in the thefts. Onan G. Nunez, 19, of Ashburn and Bryan H. Sandoval, 19, of Reston were charged with grand larceny (auto theft), receiving stolen property (firearm), and grand larceny from a vehicle.
         
Since September 11, detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office have worked in coordination with the Fairfax County Police Department and conducted multiple search warrants in both Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. The search warrants recovered multiple firearms, ammunition and other items that are believed to have been stolen from vehicles.

Detectives believe the suspects were involved in a series of larcenies over the past several months targeting vehicles in both Loudoun and Fairfax. As part of the continuing investigation several more arrests have been made in Fairfax County.
         
The case remains under investigation and additional charges and arrests are likely.
