An alleged burglar responsible for more than 100 break-ins across Fairfax County has been apprehended by police. The suspect’s name is Brad Edmonds and he is a resident of Prince George’s County. Excerpt from a Washington Post story:
Fairfax police think that Edmonds, 34, may be responsible for the streak of similar break-ins, many in the McLean and Fair Oaks areas, that terrified residents starting in late August. Police now estimate that Edmonds was responsible for more than 110 in Fairfax alone, and Montgomery police are checking to see whether he might be linked to other burglaries there.
