An Alexandria man was sentenced to four years in prison this
week for his involvement in a series of Loudoun break-ins.
Loudoun Circuit Court Judge Thomas D. Horne sentenced Victor Tayon Ellis, 25, of Alexandria, to the four-year term, plus five years of supervised probation upon his release. In addition, Ellis faces 10 years of suspended if he violates his probation.
Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office detectives identified Ellis as the suspect in a series of thefts from unlocked vehicles, garages and homes in South Riding and Sterling, and charged him with eight felonies. In July, Ellis pleaded guilty to four felony counts of breaking and entering and one felony count of credit card theft.
A restitution hearing related to the charges has been set for September 13 in Loudoun Circuit Court.
