After Stealing Dog, Two Charged with Drunkenness

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday arrested two people following a reported burglary and assault at a Preddy Court home in Ashburn.

Deputies were called to the scene just after 8:30 p.m. when a victim reported two acquaintances entered his home and assaulted two people. No one was injured in the altercation, but one of the suspects took the homeowner’s dog before leaving.

The suspects then fled the area in a vehicle. While leaving the scene, the driver struck a parked car and continued driving.

Deputies found the suspects driving away from the incident and conducted a traffic stop. The driver, Taylor R. Davenport, 22, of Ashburn, was charged with burglary, assault and battery, hit and run, and driving while intoxicated. Michael E. Turley, 21, was charged with burglary, assault and battery, larceny of an animal, and public intoxication. Both were held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
