2 Va. men arrested in string of larcenies from vehicles

LOUDOUN CO. – Two Virginia men have been arrested in a string of larcenies from vehicles that occurred in Loudoun County and the Town of Herndon.

Deputies say Edward L. Campbell, Jr., 25, of Ashburn and Craig Nipper-Duval, 22, of Herndon, broke into several unlocked cars throughout the summer and stole multiple items including credit cars. Those credit cards were used later at local stores to purchase gift cards.

Campbell was arrested on August 14 on 12 felony charges, including four counts of credit card theft, three counts of obtaining money through false pretense, one count of attempt to obtain money by false pretenses, three counts of Identity Theft and one count of attempted identity theft.

A subsequent investigation identified Nipper-Duval as an accomplice in many of the thefts. After a search warrant was executed in the Town of Herndon Thursday night, Nipper-Duval was taken into custody by the Herndon Police Department with the assistance of the Fairfax County Police Department.  He is charged with 10 felonies in Loudoun County, including four counts of credit card theft, three counts of obtaining money by false pretenses and three counts of identity theft.

Additional charges are pending against both suspects.
