Suspected Serial Burglar To Face More Charges

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Fairfax County’s top prosecutor says he also plans to file charges against a Maryland man suspected of committing more than 100 burglaries or attempted break-ins in the Washington area.

Brad Edmonds, of Oxon Hill, Md., was sentenced this week to 33 years in prison after being convicted of breaking into a home in Montgomery County, Md.

Edmonds was arrested in November after police say officers spotted him breaking into cars in Potomac, Md. Police say officers stopped Edmonds and charged him with burglary and related offenses after searches of his home and car found items linked to burglaries in Virginia.

Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond Morrogh tells The Washington Post that he intends to charge Edmonds in four break-ins.
