More break-ins linked to Fairfax burglar

Fairfax County Police officers went door-to-door Tuesday notifying residents in the Hunter Mill Road area of an overnight burglary and an attempted burglary detectives believe may be related to 87 other incidents that have occurred throughout the county since August, police said in a statement.

In the latest case, a resident called police at about 7 a.m. Tuesday after discovering cash had been stolen from her purse during an overnight break-in in the 1800 block of Horseback Trail.

Police canvassing the neighborhood determined there had been another attempted break-in overnight, police said.

Before Tuesday, county police had said they suspected links among 57 burglaries or attempted burglaries, and 30 other incidents including larcenies from vehicles and reports of suspicious persons and suspicious noise complaints.

Police have asked anyone with information about these incidents or the suspect to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), e-mail at or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES(274637). A $1,000 cash reward is offered for information that leads to an arrest.
