Va. sheriff's employee to be charged in shoplifting


WASHINGTON (AP) - Leesburg police say a Fairfax County Sheriff's Office employee will be charged with shoplifting in a case that drew attention after the Target security guard who reported the alleged crime was fired.

The sheriff's office employee has not been identified, and formal charges have yet to be filed.

Leesburg police say they identified a suspect a few days after the theft in late May and were awaiting word from Target on whether to proceed with charges. Police say they got that word from Target on Monday.

Police say the decision to fire the security guard was a corporate decision made by Target. Dallas Northington told The Washington Post that he was fired after Target told him he violated procedure by filling out paperwork before calling police.

SCAM ALERT: Scammers posing as Police in Leesburg


LEESBURG Va. (WUSA9) -- The Leesburg Police Department is warning citizens about a scam that involves fictitious arrest warrants.

According to police, in ease case a suspect would contact the victim acting as a law enforcement officer, and would say the victim has a warrant issued for their arrest.

The suspect would offer the victim an opportunity to settle the issue by purchasing electronic MoneyPak orders, or "Green Dot Cards," in the amount of $2,000, police say. The suspect would then get the serial number from the card and transfer the funds without the victim knowing.

Following the transfer, communication with the suspect ceases, officials say.

Police remind citizens to be wary of these "phishing" scams that prey on the fear of the unknowing public.
