Arrests in Golf Course Robberies

One adult man and a 14 and 16-year-old have been arrested in an ongoing investigation of a robbery and brandishing at a Reston golf course.

On Aug. 16 around 6:41 p.m., officers responded to the Hidden Creek Country Club located at 1711 Clubhouse Road in Reston for a reported weapon brandishing. An employee approached a group of teenagers who he suspected of stealing golf carts in the past; a verbal altercation ensued. One of the teenagers brandished a handgun. Officers and the helicopter searched the area but did not locate the teens. 

Later that evening, at 8:06 p.m., officers responded back to the golf course for a robbery. A group of teenagers stole a golf cart and crashed it. The group then robbed a party of golfers of their golf cart at gunpoint and drove away, according to police. Officers and the helicopter searched the area again without locating the suspects. No injuries were sustained by anyone involved. 

Through the investigation, detectives were able to identify and charge Deon Luangraj, 18, of Lynchburg, with Possession of a Firearm with an Altered Serial Number.

Detectives identified and charged two additional teenagers with Robbery, Firearm, and Narcotics offenses. The 16-year-old was charged with PWID of Schedule I/II Narcotics, and Possession of a Firearm While in Possession of Certain Substances. The 14-year-old was charged with Robbery, Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony, and Underage Possession of a Firearm.

The investigation that led to these arrests yielded the recovery of four firearms and suspected narcotics.
