Middleburg, Va.(WUSA)-- The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office continues to work with the Middleburg Police Department in the investigation of a series of commercial burglaries in the downtown business district of Middleburg.

On Friday, March 20, 2009, investigators with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division, working in conjunction with officers from the Middleburg Police, executed a search warrant at a residence in the 100 block of West Marshall Street. A search of the home discovered a distribution quantity of cocaine, assorted distribution materials such as cutting agents, packaging materials, and a digital scale. Also located in the home was marijuana, over $1,500.00 in cash, and a Remington 12 gauge shotgun with the serial number removed. William "Martin" Thomas, 36, of Middleburg, was arrested and taken to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center where he was held with no bond on narcotics and weapons charges.

On Saturday, March 21, 2009, three businesses in the downtown area were discovered burglarized. The Saddlery Liquidators, Lou Lou Too, and White Bench were forcible entered and money from the cash register and other property stolen.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division continues to investigate a series of incidents in the Middleburg area. On March 12th, 2009 a woman reported an attempted sexual assault at a barn just outside of town. On March 15th, 2009 seven businesses in the downtown area were burglarized. On March 17th, 2009 Mr. Jeffrey Allen O'Brien, 18, of Middleburg was arrested after he was found in the 100 block of W. Marshall Street in possession of a replica shotgun and handgun and a small amount of marijuana and found notes detailing plans to kill cops and judges and burn down apartment complexes to terrorize everybody's spring and summer.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Crime Prevention will conduct two presentations in Middleburg on business and personal safety. The presentations will be held at the Middleburg Town Hall on Friday, March 27, 2009 at 6pm, and on Tuesday, March 31, 2009 at 9 a.m.

Anyone with information regarding these commercial burglaries is asked to contact Investigator D. Crandall of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division.

Unfortunately this is just a small dent in the overall major supply of drugs being smuggled to the U.S.A. and for drug loving Americans.

This is go away for a few days then start up again as this is the way that these type of drug operations work.

I congratulate the police for their effort, but it has to be fiixed at the border. Perhaps legalizing
drugs would eliminate the enormous amount of money that is being used to get rid of drug dealers. Wake up because it will only get worse.

Sorry to say, but the huge demand in the US for illegal drugs is the enabler of this horrible
drug war.

mass deportations now

Do we need any more proof that it's time to start the mass deportations? This crowd had the perfect cover: poor, humble, drove old cars, blended right in. I wonder how many of them, driving an old car carrying a shipment of heroin, got waved through the border entrances with a smile from the officer in the booth. And they were pulling this off for twenty years? A much bigger question is how many more groups like this one are operating here in the U.S., right under the radar, right in front of everyone. Round up every illegal, regardless where they came from, and kick their assez out of here. Enough is enough. Once they are gone, then see to it that they don't come back.

It's the government that are the real drug dealers. When we invaded Afghanistan, the Taliban had reduced heroin production to 125 tons annually. When the USA invaded, after only one year it went from 125 tons to 3500 tons. Today its over 10,000 tons. So until our crooked corrupt government is overthrown, we are all ruled by drug dealing thieven' murderers.
