The Fairfax Police Department says it may have put a stop to burglars targeting the homes of South Asian families. Three people from New York have been charged in connection with a series of burglaries in Fairfax.

Police say the burglars targeted homes of South Asian families and specifically took gold jewelry. A police spokesperson says the arrests came after a U.S. marshal spotted a suspicious vehicle in Centreville on Tuesday.

Fairfax has investigated nearly 20 such cases this year, and Loudoun County has had similar burglaries.Police say the next phase of the investigation is expected to include multiple jurisdictions in at least two states.
