Press release website

Loudoun County, VA (February 11, 2023) - The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) arrested two men in connection with a burglary in Aldie at an electrical storage yard on Dominion Energy property. 

This morning at 12:38 am, deputies responded to the 26000 block of Auburn Farm Road for a report of two males cutting a fence on an area of Dominion Energy property that is leased to another entity. Deputies quickly arrived on scene and were able to locate the two suspects who had breached the storage yard and place them in custody.  A bag with wire cutters was recovered at the location. 

While the incident remains under investigation, all indications point to the subjects being there to steal copper wire. Dominion Energy officials confirmed there was no breach of an adjacent Dominion Energy Substation.

Christopher J. Macmillan, 51, and Joshua L. Settle, 38, both from Manassas, were charged with Possession of Burglary Tools, Attempted Larceny, Trespassing, Destruction of Property, and Conspiracy to Commit Larceny.  Both were transported to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.  Macmillan is being held without bond and Settles was given a $7,500 secured bond.

The LCSO would like to thank the Virginia State Police and the Fairfax County Police Department Helicopter Division for their assistance.
