<sh>Police Make Arrest in Larcenies

<bt>A Herndon man was apprehended early on the morning of Aug. 12 after a rash of vehicle larcenies in Ashburn Village.

An Ashburn woman was walking her dog around 3:30 a.m. in the area of Natalie Terrace when she noticed three suspicious subjects who appeared to be entering vehicles and loading items into a vehicle. The woman alerted the Sheriff's Office.

As patrol units from the Sheriff's Office arrived at the scene, two of the subjects fled on foot while a third subject drove away. At the same time another Sheriff's deputy was heading towards the scene when he noticed a vehicle driving with its lights off. The vehicle was similar to the one described at the scene and was entering Ashburn Village Boulevard from the area where the vehicle tampering had occurred.

After a short pursuit the vehicle stopped in the area of Bruceton Mills Circle. Approximately 80 items were discovered in the vehicle including CD car Stereos, two wallets, jewelry and several CD cases filled with assorted CDs

The driver of the vehicle, 26-year-old Jose Julio Otero-Ayala, was charged with three counts of grand larceny, eluding, possession of burglarious tools, and credit card theft. He is currently being held at the Loudoun Adult Detention Center without bond.

The case remains under investigation and the Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information regarding the subjects in the incident to call 703-777-1021.
