Arrest in string of Va. robberies

An Ashburn man has been charged in connection with a series of armed robberies in Fairfax and Loudoun counties, according to the Loudoun sheriff’s office.

Sean A. Mabry, 29, was charged Wednesday with armed robberies that targeted the Chantilly Cash & Carry on July 26, a Hair Cuttery in Centreville on Sept. 7, and the CC Hair Salon in Centreville on Sept. 20, police said.

Mabry faces three additional felony charges for armed robberies that occurred in Loudoun, targeting the KFC/Taco Bell in Ashburn on Sept. 6 and two Hair Cuttery salons in Ashburn on Sept. 12 and 14, according to authorities.

A search warrant was served Wednesday on Mabry’s Ashburn home after Fairfax police linked Mabry to the Sept. 7 robbery of the Hair Cuttery in Centreville, according to Loudoun sheriff’s spokesman Kraig Troxell.

Mabry’s appearance matched the images captured by surveillance video, Troxell said, and a subsequent investigation conducted by police in Fairfax and Loudoun connected Mabry to all six armed robberies.

Mabry is believed to have been acting alone, Troxell said.

While investigators are looking into any possible connections to similar robberies in neighboring jurisdictions, it appears at this point that Mabry was striking only within Loudoun and Fairfax, according to Troxell.

“He appeared to be working that Route 28 corridor between Loudoun and Fairfax counties,” he said.

Mabry was apprehended at his home Wednesday, Troxell said, and is currently held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
