Fairfax police investigate burglaries

By Allison Klein

Fairfax County police are investigating whether 20 recent burglary cases are linked to the same thieves.

The four most recent break-ins occurred in the Fairfax Station area Saturday when thieves forced open doors of unoccupied homes between 5 and 7 p.m. They made off with small, easily concealed valuables, police said.

The string, which started November 13, has spanned the West Springfield, Mason and McLean Police Districts.

Police ask residents to call police if they see suspicious vehicles or people in their neighborhood. Crime Solvers can be reached by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, by e-mail at or by text, "TIP187" plus your message to CRIMES/274637. Fairfax County Police can be reached at 703-691-2131.

This takes balls or incredible stupidity. Anything to avoid work. Work isn't so bad, guys. You'll survive. Think about it.

Maybe you just enjoy the all-male environment of prison...
