A Chantilly man has been arrested and charged with one count of breaking and entering. He is Allen Eugene Black Jr., 26, of 4309 Willoughby Court in the Poplar Tree Estates community.
In a July 2 affidavit for a warrant to search his home for specific items stolen from a neighbor's house, Fairfax County police Det. T. W. Cook presented details of the case against him. Cook is with the Sully District Station's Criminal Investigation Section.
He wrote that, on July 1, a citizen called police to report a residential burglary. The complainant stated that he/she had observed a male subject leave a particular address on Willoughby court — that wasn't his own — with a suitcase.
The caller knew where the man lived and described him as white, with short hair and a mustache, 5 foot, 8 inches and about 160 pounds. Responding officers located the suspect at his house on the same block as the burglarized home.
Police reportedly identified him as Black, and the caller also came and, according to Cook, "positively identified [him]" as being the individual he/she saw leaving the home with the occupant's suitcase. Furthermore, patrol officers requested a K-9 unit assist them in obtaining a scent track, and the detective wrote that the unit was able to successfully uncover such a track leading from the burglarized home to Black's home.
Police then contacted the man whose house was broken into, and he looked around his home and discovered that several things were missing. They included a black suitcase and other items including one bottle each of Kettle 1 vodka, Grey Goose vodka and red wine, a silver MP3 player with a headphone case, and a DVD player.
Also missing were the DVD movies "The Godfather, parts I, II and III," "Spaceballs," "Say Anything" and "The Princess Bride" (still in its wrapper). "At no time did [the victim] give the suspect permission to enter his residence or remove any property," wrote Cook. "[And I] observed a dark-colored suitcase in the suspect's residence while checking the outside structure for this affidavit."
Black was arrested June 2 at his home and charged with breaking and entering. He was released from the Adult Detention Center later that day on $2,500 bond and has a Sept. 20 court date. If convicted, he could be sentenced to as much as five years in prison.
Police executed the search warrant on July 5 and seized: Three smoking devices, one bottle each of Kettle 1 vodka, Grey Goose vodka and red wine, a DVD player, an MP3 player, a headphone set in a case. Also seized were the following DVDs: ""The Godfather, parts I, II and III," "Spaceballs," "Say Anything," "The Princess Bride," "Overboard" (still in its wrapper), "Blue Crush," "Caddyshack," "The Wedding Date," "The Replacements," "Two For the Money" and "Blow."
