Cars vandalized in Loudoun

Vandals smashed the windows of 27 cars in Sterling on Sunday, on a few occasions stealing credit cards or GPS systems, Loudoun County Sheriff's Officials said.

Sheriff's officials said early Sunday morning windows were smashed on 16 vehicles on East Beech Road, North Filmore Ave., North Kennedy Road, North Concord Court and North Cameron Street. No thefts were reported in those cases.

The same day, residents in the 45900 block of Old Ox Road reported that the windows of 11 cars has been damaged. In three of those cases the vandals had entered the vehicles and stole items including navigation systems, authorities said.

Loudoun Sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell said investigators are looking into the possibility the cases may be linked.

"Vandals smashed the windows of 27 cars in Sterling on Sunday, on a few occasions stealing credit cards or GPS systems, Loudoun County Sheriff's Officials said."

Anyone stupid enough to leave credit cards inside a vehicle deserves to get ripped off.

An observation:

Interesting how the perpetrators of such a crime are described by the Post as "vandals" when they do it in Loudon County; when it happens in Prince Georges County, the perps are called "criminals".

I agree each area has their way of wording things..I work with people in VA and MD and they are always shocked when something happens in his or her area..I never thought this or I never thought that..I never thought a Priest would do things that they have done...

"Vandals" is a perfectly accurate description of the perps in this case. Do you really think "vandal" sounds nicer than "criminal"? I don't. I see tons of anti-PGC sentiment in the comments, not so much on the part of the Wapo itself... aside perhaps from a tendancy to report that a crime has happened in "Prince George's County" as opposed to in "name of town." That can make it sound as though ALL of Prince George's County is one big crime scene.
