Loudoun County, VA- Two Virginia men are in custody after a multi-jurisdictional investigation and are suspected of being involved in a rash of larceny from vehicle cases in Loudoun County and the Town of Herndon. 

Edward L. Campbell, Jr., 25, of Ashburn and Craig Nipper-Duval, 22, of Herndon, were identified as suspects in a series of thefts from vehicles over the summer in the Ashburn and Herndon areas through a joint investigation by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) and the Town of Herndon Police Department. 

In many of the cases, the suspects entered unlocked vehicles and removed items including credit cards. The credit cards were later used at area stores to purchase gift cards. 

“The arrest of the two suspects reflects well on the hard work of the detectives and how good working relationships with our partners in law enforcement and the community can help solve crime,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.  

Campbell was arrested by the LCSO on August 14 on 12 felony charges, including four counts of credit card theft, three counts of obtaining money through false pretense, one count of attempt to obtain money by false pretenses, three counts of Identity Theft and one count of attempted identity theft. 

 A subsequent investigation identified Nipper-Duval as an accomplice in many of the thefts. After a search warrant was executed in the Town of Herndon Thursday night, Nipper-Duval was taken into custody by the Herndon Police Department with the assistance of the Fairfax County Police Department.  He is charged with 10 felonies in Loudoun County, including four counts of credit card theft, three counts of obtaining money by false pretenses and three counts of identity theft. 

Campbell remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond. Nipper-Duval is being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. 

Additional charges are pending against both suspects.
