Be On the Lookout...

The Loudoun County Sheriff?s Office is searching for a vehicle involved in a larceny and a hit and run that left a man in serious condition Monday evening in Lovettsville.

Around 7:15 p.m. a white male teenage suspect entered the convenience store of the Liberty Gas Station at 12842 Berlin Turnpike. The teen attempted to buy alcohol but was denied by the cashier because of the suspect?s age. The suspect then threw down some money and grabbed the beer as he fled from the store. He then jumped into a small passenger car, described as an older model blue Geo Storm. The car was occupied by a black male passenger.

At this time an adult customer attempted to grab the suspect as he attempted to drive away. The customer was dragged by the suspect vehicle as it struck another vehicle in the parking lot. The customer fell to the ground as the suspect vehicle drove away at a high rate of speed northbound on Berlin Turnpike. The customer who was dragged by the car was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital for treatment for serious injuries.

Anyone who knows the identity of the suspect or has seen this vehicle in the Lovettsville area is asked to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff?s Office at 703-777-1021. If the caller wishes to remain anonymous they are asked to contact Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. If the information leads to an arrest and indictment the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
