Break in case of Northern Va. Metro station thefts

Police in three Northern Virginia jurisdictions said Tuesday they are looking for a man named Butta Whack in connection with a series of auto thefts and break-ins, mostly near Metro stations in Northern Virginia.

Kenneth "Butta" Whack, 18, is charged in Fairfax with three counts of grand larceny, police said. Fairfax police have been investigating both car thefts and residential burglaries near the Vienna, West Falls Church and Dunn Loring Metro stations, Officer Don Gotthardt said.

Investigators believe that Whack, and other suspects, ride the Metro from the District into Virginia and either steal cars and return to the District or steal items from cars and then take the train back to the city.

In Alexandria, Whack is wanted for petty larceny from a vehicle and trespassing into a vehicle, spokesman Jody Donaldson said.

In Prince William, Whack is charged with one count of grand larceny, police said. Whack is described as a black man, about 6-foot-1, weighing about 160 pounds, with dreadlocked hair with bleached tips.

Anyone with information about Whack is asked to call Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS [8477].
