Loudoun County, VA (January 30, 2022) – A Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy was injured, and three suspects were apprehended after deputies responded to the Dulles 28 Centre on Columbia Place to locate suspects possibly involved in a crime spree in the region.
Around 6 p.m. January 29, 2022, the LCSO was contacted by a loss prevention officer who advised that suspects from previously reported larcenies in the region had entered the Sterling Target store location.
As deputies arrived on the scene, two suspects inside the Target store attempted to flee. One suspect was apprehended inside the store. The second suspect ran from the store to an awaiting vehicle occupied by a third suspect.
