Home, car break-ins reported in Alexandria
A number of homes and cars have been broken into in Alexandria recently, police said Wednesday, particularly in the Del Ray section of the City.
Most of the residential burglaries occurred during the daytime hours, usually between noon and 7 p.m., police said. Laptops, jewelry, televisions and cash were commonly targeted by robbers who broke into rear and side doors.
All but one of the homes was unoccupied at the time of the burglaries, police said. A resident in the 200 block of W. Windsor Avenue was at home when a burglar entered the house and then fled when he saw someone there. Nothing was taken from the residence.
Six cars in Del Ray were broken into between Jan. 9 and 11, police said, with thieves taking loose coins. All of them were left unlocked, police said, and most were parked in the victim's driveway.
