Fairfax police investigate burglaries
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.
