Man sought in Sterling robbery: Police

By Caitlin Gibson


One woman has been arrested and another is wanted in connection with a botched robbery in Sterling last Thursday that left one man dead and another wounded.

Meanwhile, a third male suspect involved in the incident remains at large and is believed to be armed and dangerous, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Samuel Thomas Eaton, 27, who was charged in connection to last week's apparent home invasion, is believed to have left the area in a dark gray 2004 Hyundai sedan with Virginia registration XFH 2671, police said. He is believed to be traveling to North Carolina, according to authorities.

Rebecca Lynn Hook, 27, of Lovettsville, was arrested Tuesday in Loudoun and charged with being an accessory after the fact, police said.

Whitney Lasik, 24, of Sterling has also been charged in connection with the crime, police said. Investigators that Lasik believe drove one of the alleged robbers, whom police did not identify, to Inova Loudoun Hospital, where he is recovering from his wounds. Lasik is still at large, police said.

Anthony D. Miles, 28, was one of the three men who allegedly burst into a home on E. Kennedy Drive and was met with gunfire from another man inside. Miles was transported to Inova Loudoun Hospital at Lansdowne, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

I hadn't heard about this incident, but glad to hear it. Thugs who invade homes should be shot, best case for everyone.
love it, everyone should arm themselves and protect themselves against this kind of vermin.
