Arrest Made in Hit-and-Run

Police still search for "three unknown females" in hit-and-run fatality.

Police charged Daniel L. Huggins, 43 of Manassas, with the hit-and-run death of a Herndon man on Nov. 24.

Jeremy A. Brader, 27 of the 2400 block of Quick Street in Herndon, was found lying on Ordway Road near the intersection of Compton Road in Centreville about 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 24.

"He had apparently been struck by a vehicle which had left the scene," according to Fairfax County Police reports. Brader suffered "obvious injuries to his head," according to search warrant affidavit filed in the case.

Huggins was arrested Nov. 27 and charged with hit-and-run resulting in death as well as credit card theft.

HUGGINS LEFT a Herndon bar with three unknown women, according to warrants filed in Fairfax County Circuit Court.

Huggins admitted letting the women out of his car at a 7-Eleven store at 7420 Centreville Road in Prince William County, according to court documents.

The three "unknown" women, according to warrants, purchased several items with Brader's father's Discover credit card.

"Credit card records indicate the card being used approximately two minutes prior to the 911 call to the Fairfax County Police Department reporting the death of Jeremy Brader," according to the warrants. Credit card records and video from various stores in Prince William County show the three women making multiple unauthorized purchases with the same credit card.

The case is still "very active" and the investigation is ongoing, according to Lt. Dan Courtney.

"We're still looking into all the dynamics," he said. "We are trying to find out what, if any association, he had with the others."

Huggins is scheduled to face a preliminary hearing in Fairfax County General District Court early next year.

"Mr. Huggins admitted to an unknown white male subject leaving with them in his vehicle," states the warrant. "Mr. Huggins admitted to having the three unknown black females in his vehicle on Nov. 24, 2007, after leaving a bar in the Herndon area."

At the Connection's Tuesday presstime, police were still searching for the three women described in the warrants.
