Nineteen Northern Virginia businesses have been robbed in the past five weeks. Nine of these were in Fairfax County, eight in Loudoun County and two in the Town of Herndon. The latest two, both in Loudoun, were Wednesday night. Three of the robberies happened over 24 hours between Wednesday and Thursday.
The FBI has joined detectives in those local jurisdictions in searching for a pair of suspects whose images have been caught on surveillance video.
The suspects appear to be men between 5’4” and 6’ tall. In one case, a gas station robbery on Centreville Road on February 10, a suspect was armed with a rifle.
The targets in Fairfax County have mostly been service stations or convenience stores.
