A case of a pair of larceny suspects being victimized by the victim of their acts was reported by the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office. All three ended up in jail early Saturday morning.
The incident was reported at 5 a.m. Aug. 17 after a Mayfield Terrence resident saw a man entering his vehicle with another man standing nearby. The suspects allegedly stole money and gift cards from the vehicle before fleeing when confronted by the homeowner. Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the suspects.
Later the resident said the suspects returned and entered the vehicle a second time. He then followed the suspects to a nearby house. There, he forced entry through a glass door, damaged items inside the home, and removed a wallet from a bedroom.
The suspects in the vehicle break in were identified as Jonathan L. Szutenbach, 18, of Sterling and Adrian A. Zelaya-Lopez, 18, of Aldie. Szutenbach was charged with grand larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, and two counts of vandalism. He was held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center. Zelaya-Lopez was charged with conspiracy to commit larceny and was held on a $1,000 bond.
The resident and owner of the vehicle was identified as Boris E. Roque Cornejo, 33, of Sterling. He was charged with burglary, vandalism, and petit larceny and was held without bond.
