(Oct. 24, 2013) – A Sterling, Virginia woman was apprehended October 22nd in connection with a burglary reported earlier this month at a home near Old Ox Road.
Ajanay M. Banks, 18, is charged in connection with the October 14th burglary of a home in the 43000 block of Stukely Drive in Dulles, VA. The suspect damaged a small basement window to gain access to the home. Once inside the home, the suspect stole coins and jewelry valued at over $28,000.
Through the course of the investigation, detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office were able to identify a family member, who once lived at the residence, as a suspect. The investigation led to the discovery of prior jewelry thefts from the same victim, committed by this suspect during the month of September. The jewelry from these prior thefts had been sold by the suspect to a local pawn shop.
Banks was located on October 22nd in the Sterling area and taken into custody without incident. “We are pleased the detectives were able to move quickly on this case and bring closure to the victim,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.
Banks is charged with burglary, larceny, and larceny with intent to sell/distribute stolen property for the offense that occurred on September. In addition, she was charged with underage possession of alcohol in connection with the burglary that occurred on October 14th.
