A resident found a strange man standing in his kitchen in the middle of the night over the weekend.

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, the incident took place in the 1200 block of Cobble Pond Way, off Hunter Mill Road. At about 3 a.m. Sunday, the homeowner found “an unknown man” in his kitchen. The suspect ran away after he was spotted, and the homeowner chased him while his wife called police.

Responding officers located a “suspicious van” in the area, and discovered it had been reported stolen. Two men who were inside the van were arrested:

  • David Pugnettif, 20, of Reston was allegedly the man who had been inside the house. He was charged with burglary, and he also had an outstanding warrant for carrying a concealed weapon.
  • John Kyle, 22, of Reston was charged with auto theft and driving on a revoked license.

Anyone with information about any of the crimes reported by FCPD should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).

In Loudoun County, two Herndon residents were charged after a party and fight late Friday night in Sterling. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office says the incident took place at a warehouse in the 45000 block of Maries Road at about midnight. Several people who appeared to be underaged were drinking outside the building, police say, and they fled inside when officers arrived. LCSO was told that people inside were being held against their will. Once the scene was secured, “multiple individuals” were issued summonses for underage possession of alcohol. Several others faced additional charges, including:

  • Janey Carballo-Renderos, 20, of Herndon, who was charged with false identification to law enforcement and obstruction of justice.
  • Billy W. Quezada, 21, of Herndon, who was charged with public intoxication

LCSO also says a 22-year-old Herndon woman was charged with shoplifting from a Dulles Town Center store Saturday afternoon. Police say Leanna C. Saiza-Bailey was stealing items from the JC Penney store, and she was charged with grand larceny.

In addition, as we reported last week, a Herndon teen was charged by LCSO with felony burglary, misdemeanor sexual assault and misdemeanor simple assault after allegedly assaulting a girl at her Sterling home.

    The tie that binds many of these crimes? Pizza. Detectives, look for the pizza angle.

    In the Cobble Pond instance, I am thinking the intruder sought pizza.

          You’re like the freak show at a circus. I can’t stop watching and marveling at how you believe anyone besides the constitutionalist cares what you think about Every. Single. Post.

          • Mike M

            And then you HAVE to chime in. So, who is the freak?

            If only to make you check your notifications, breathlessly hoping that someone cared about your drivel, only to find my comments. Priceless!
