Two Loudoun County men are in custody after a series of commercial burglaries in the Sterling area this week and were connected to two other thefts from earlier this year.

Mark C. Judy, II, 30, and Joseph T. Walthall, 33, both of Sterling were charged in connection with burglaries at four locations between February 9 and February 10. The locations include Sterling Vapez on E. Holly Avenue, the Sunoco on Davis Drive, the Sunoco on Church Road, and Honest Tom’s Auto Care on Shepard Drive. The two burglars were also connected to two earlier cases at the Prime Mart on W. Church Road. The first incident was reported on January 29 with a second theft occurring on February 2nd.

“The arrests of these two men is a credit to the collaborative efforts between our patrol deputies and station detectives who shared vital information to solve these crimes and remove these serial burglars from our streets,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.

Both men are charged with three counts of burglary, two counts of attempted burglary, and five counts of conspiracy to commit a burglary. Walthall was also charged with simple assault for an incident unrelated to the burglaries. Judy and Walthall remain held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on no bond.

By now- most of you have seen the viral images of brooms mysteriously standing on their own in kitchens across the U.S. The posts claimed that it could only work on February 10 due to the planet's gravitational pull. We all know now that this was another social media hoax.

It is also a good reminder to ensure you are getting your information from reliable sources.

Last month we introduced you to Gabi David who won the 3rd Annual Drive Safe DC Public Service Announcement (PSA) Challenge.

As part of the challenge, Gabi, a student at Riverside High School, developed a PSA about being a good "road" model and shows the domino effect of the learned behavior of texting while driving.

Her ideas were brought to life in a television spot that was featured this past weekend on Teen Kids News. The educational program airs across the country on more than 200 TV stations.

As part of her appearance on Teen Kids News, Gabi was interviewed about how her concept came to life. She also had the chance to play the role of a TV reporter when she interviewed #Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman.

You can watch the episode here: https://bit.ly/2HkpuV4

Congratulations Gabi- you have a bright future ahead- and thank you for helping us spread the message of the dangers of texting and driving.

The contest is sponsored by The National Road Safety Foundation.

On this National #CrossingGuardAppreciationDay we congratulate Dina Perry who was named one of Virginia’s Most Outstanding Crossing Guards by the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Dina was nominated by the parents at Belmont Station Elementary School. In her nomination they wrote that she "goes above and beyond with ensuring the safety of the children and families at Belmont Station Elementary. She takes the time to learn everyone's names and has made a huge impact on so many kids. They have learned so much about safety when crossing streets on foot or on bike. No matter if it’s rain or shine... she brightens our day. Everyone looks forward to seeing Dina!"

The nomination continued by reflecting on her assistance to one parent on a stormy afternoon. "It started raining really hard with thunder and lightning. The school delayed the dismissal of the students due to the storm, however a parent was already waiting outside. Dina called the parent over and allowed them to sit in her van until students were dismissed to ensure the parent’s safety from the storm as well. She is an amazing and dedicated member of the community!"

Congratulations Dina and thank you to all Crossing Guards in #Loudoun County and across the nation who help keep our children safe!
