Three charged in Va. jewelry store heist
Two men and a woman have been charged with burglary and other counts in connection with a November jewelry store heist in Woodbridge, police said Thursday.
Burglars broke into a business connected to Darien Jewelers, at 2816 Prince William Parkway, sometime overnight between Nov. 1 and Nov. 2, according to the Prince William County police. They then cut the drywall separating the business from Darien, cut power cords and telephone lines, and broke into jewelry cases -- taking jewels valued around $50,000.
On Thursday, police said Cody V. Compton, 20, Jonathan K. Clark, 20, and Patricia M. Hodshire, 18, were all charged in connection with the burglary. All three lived at the same address in the unit block of Catherine Lane in Stafford.
Pr. William police released photographs of Compton and Clark. A photograph of Hodshire was not immediately available.
The trio was charged on Nov. 15 while held in Fauquier County on other charges. They are being held without bond, police said.
