Police investigating series of home break-ins in Fairfax County
FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (ABC7) —
7 On Your Side discovered court records that show Fairfax County Police are investigating 20 burglaries that happened in a two-mile area near Dulles Airport.
Kiera Small moved into her Herndon townhouse around the same time the crimes started.
“That’s very, very concerning that it’s so many,” said Small.
Some of the crimes date back to September 2017, others were as recent as this month.
“Now, I’m going to be watching things a little more closely,” said Sherri Rice who also lives in the area.
The burglars seem to strike in the afternoon and evening when no one is home. They also seem to be targeting places near walking paths or woods—breaking into the back window or back door to steal anything they can get their hands on.
The Fairfax County Police could not comment on this case because they are in the middle of an investigation to find the person or people responsible.
