Detectives arrested a 30-year-old Sterling man Friday night after DNA evidence linked him to the sexual assault of a juvenile last September.

The suspect, Fran S. Rossel Aramayo, offered the victim a ride to school on September 30, 2019 in the area of W. Laurel Avenue in Sterling. The teenage victim was familiar with the suspect and accepted the ride due to the rainy weather. As the suspect drove her to school he propositioned the victim, groped her, and sexually assaulted her.

Following the assault the victim was dropped off at school and she reported the attack to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office later that same day.

Through the course of the investigation the suspect was located, and evidence was collected to include DNA as part of a search warrant. DNA evidence returned from the Virginia Department of Forensic Science lab positively connected the suspect to the sexual assault.

Rossel Aramayo was arrested Friday night and charged with Object Sexual Penetration and Sexual Battery. He remains held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

After a six month investigation two Leesburg residents have been charged with the distribution of heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana in Loudoun County.

Marcus L. Williams, 39, and Valkyrie Arradondo, 44, were arrested as part of an investigation conducted by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Enforcement Unit. The arrests stem from information developed by detectives with the LCSO involving the suspects transporting narcotics from Washington, DC and distributing the drugs in Loudoun.

On January 15, 2020, detectives conducted a traffic stop and a subsequent search warrant was executed at a home on Hancock Place inside the Town of Leesburg as part of the investigation. Cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, marijuana and a firearm were recovered as part of the search.

Williams was charged with two counts of Distribution of a Schedule I/II Narcotic on January 15. Last week he was charged additionally with three counts of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule I/II Narcotic, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Transporting a Controlled Substance into the Commonwealth of Virginia, Possession of a Firearm while in Possession of Certain Substances, and Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana.

Arradondo was charged last week with Distribution of a Schedule I/II Narcotic, two counts of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule I/II Narcotic, Possession of a Firearm while in Possession of Certain Substances and Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana.

Both Williams and Arradondo are being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

Turning, braking and vaping: Driver’s ed for some students includes warnings about e-cigarettes

ICYMI: The Washington Post highlighted the efforts of the LCSO and Loudoun County Public Schools to discuss the dangers of vaping among our youth.

Recently the #LCSO participated in this school year's final Partners For Safe Teen Driving presentation.

Staff from Rock Ridge High School and LCSO School Resource Officer Deputy First Class Mike Baker discussed distracted driving, what to do during a traffic stop, driving safety tips, and even Vaping. Not only is Vaping a health concern for teenagers, but it is also a distraction while driving. A 2019 law also prohibits the purchase or possession of tobacco, nicotine vapor, and alternative nicotine products by anyone under the age of 21 or the sale of these products to persons under 21.

The 90-minute parent/student driver education presentation is required by Virginia Code for new drivers.

An update to the bald eagle that was found injured off of Sycolin Road in Leesburg this past Friday.
02/19/2020

An update to the bald eagle that was found injured off of Sycolin Road in Leesburg this past Friday.

We currently have three Bald Eagles in care for lead poisoning. This has been a particularly bad season for lead in many species - especially vultures, eagles, and opossums.

Our most recent lead poisoned eagle is from Loudoun county, VA and came in with a lead level that was too high to read. This bird was rescued with the help of quick-acting motorists, Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and Loudoun County Animal Services. Luckily, after just a few days in care, this patient’s lead level has come down significantly and she is now eating on her own.

The lead levels have also come down on our other eagles, both from Stafford county, VA. The first is now fighting kidney injury that occurred due to the toxicity while the other is continuing to heal a fractured ulna.

In addition to the neurologic signs we frequently see, lead poisoned eagles are most commonly admitted with severe trauma as they get hit by cars, fly into walls/trees/buildings, or get injured in fights with non-intoxicated conspecifics. About half of them still have fragments of lead ammunition in their stomachs on intake.

If you hunt, please make the switch to non-lead ammunition. These fragments end up in meat and organs up to 18” from the wound channel and gut piles left in fields are killing our vultures and eagles. If you are shooting “nuisance” animals on your property with lead ammunition, be sure to recover bodies and dispose of them properly through deep burial or incineration. Better yet, save yourself the hassle and call the Center for advice about encouraging unwanted wildlife to move on naturally. In areas where eagles and other birds eat fish, lead sinkers can also be a major source of intoxication (though we see very little of that in our specific area).

These lead items, when covered in tasty meat, will be consumed by hungry carnivores/omnivores/scavengers and lead to an endless chain of easily preventable deaths.
