Loudoun County, VA: Three males were apprehended near Leesburg Thursday afternoon after a smash and grab style larceny at a Dulles Town Center jewelry store.
Around 3:30PM two male suspects entered Fink’s Jewelry store inside the Dulles Town Center. One of the suspects used a small blunt object to damage a glass jewelry case.

The other two male suspects, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old from Michigan, were charged with grand larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, and destruction of property. The names of the teenagers cannot be released due to the fact they are juveniles. The two teenagers remain held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center.
