Local deputy charged with soliciting minor online

A longstanding employee of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has been arrested and charged with two felony counts of soliciting a minor online.

Dustin Amos, 33, of Herndon was arrested after two multi-jurisdictional law enforcement task forces conducted the investigation.

Amos has worked at the county’s adult detention center since 2013.

The investigation began on Dec. 17 when the Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force contacted the NOVA-DC Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. A detective on the task force reportedly came into contact with Amos.

Virginia State Police arrested Amos without incident. He is currently being held without bond.
