A CIA employee has been charged with 17 counts of burglary and grand larceny involving a string of break-ins at houses in Fairfax County starting in the fall.

Investigators said George Dalmas III, 34, of Falls Church, was an administrative worker at the CIA, whose headquarters are in McLean, where the burglaries occurred. He was arrested Friday.

“The investigation goes back to late last fall, when the burglaries started to occur,” said Officer Richard Henry, a Fairfax County police spokesman. “We knew they were the same person because they were so close together and the [method] of the actual burglary.”

Police apprehended Mr. Dalmas after a woman returned home and found him inside.

The woman, a stay-at-home mother, was able to describe the vehicle and man to police, giving authorities the information they needed to make an arrest.

“Jan. 24 was the big break, where the woman who went in her house saw the stranger and gave us a good vehicle-and-suspect description to target,” Officer Henry said. “We were already looking at [Mr. Dalmas], and we had information about his car, but her information helped target him.”

Police said more charges are possible.

The CIA said Mr. Dalmas has been suspended without pay.
