Fair Oaks and Reston Police District – On Sunday, March 10, at approximately 10:45 a.m. detectives arrested Victor T. Ellis, 25, of 7100 Fairchild Lane, Alexandria, and charged him with burglary, entering a vehicle to commit a crime, and petit larceny. This came after Ellis allegedly fled from officers in a vehicle at approximately 6 a.m. and led them in a pursuit which began at the Fairfax County Parkway and Leesburg Pike and ended in a crash in Loudoun County. Ellis evaded capture until he was seen by officers in the Herndon area where he was taken into custody.
The charges were in regards to a burglary that occurred in the 3600 block of Great Laurel Lane in Fairfax on Saturday, March 9. A resident reported she was sitting in the kitchen when someone entered the home. He allegedly stole a purse and fled. A K-9 team and the helicopter assisted in searching for the suspect, but he was not found.
There have been several burglaries in the Fair Oaks and Reston Police Districts as well as Loudoun County which could be related. These cases are still under investigation.
