Break-in at Ashburn daycare center

By Caitlin Gibson

Someone used a gun to break through the glass front door of a locked daycare center in Ashburn, leaving alcohol and personal items inside but stealing nothing, according to the Loudoun County sheriff's office.

The incident at the Ashburn Village KinderCare in the Ashburn Shopping Plaza took place sometime between 11 p.m. Thursday and 6 a.m. Friday, according to police.

No items were reported missing and there appeared to be no additional damage to the building, authorities said.

"It's unclear what the intent was, but it's obvious that alcohol was involved since alcohol and personal effects were found inside the facility," said Kraig Troxell, Loudoun sheriff's spokesman.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Investigator R. Bennett at 703-777-0475. Callers who wish to remain anonymous are asked to call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.

Im guessing its gang related. Many times gang initiations entail a wanna be to commit a crime that makes the news and not get caught. what bothers me is that cops dont know what time it happpened between 12 midnight and 6 am, which is kinda scary since it is a well lit shopping center
