Oxon Hill Man Linked To Dozens of Va. Burglaries

FAIRFAX, Va. - Fairfax County police say investigators believe a man arrested in Maryland is the burglar responsible for breaking into dozens of northern Virginia homes while residents slept. After seeing a man break into cars in Potomac, Md., police say officers stopped the man's car early Wednesday morning. Officers arrested 34-year-old Brad Edmonds of Oxon Hill, Md., and charged him with burglary and related offenses after searches of his home and car found items linked to the Virginia burglaries. Police linked one person to more that 100 residential burglaries and other incidents in Fairfax County and believed the same person was involved in similar incidents in surrounding jurisdictions. It's not yet clear how many of these incidents Edmonds will be charged in.
