Cars vandalized, stolen from in Sterling

By Caitlin Gibson

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is investigating a spate of related larcenies and reports of destruction of property in Sterling, according to authorities.

The incidents all took place between midnight and 7 a.m. on Saturday, police said. Deputies first responded to a report of a larceny from two vehicles on Regents Park Circle, authorities said. Two digital cameras and two GPS units were stolen.

Ten residents reported that their cars had tires damaged in the area of Blossom Drive and Magnolia Road, while 14 additional residents reported that the tires of their cars were damaged in the area of Golden Spike Terrace, according to the sheriff's office.

Two pairs of sunglasses and a GPS unit were stolen from cars on Golden Spike Terrace, and a car was also reported damaged in the nearby area of Trestle Terrace, police said.

The cases are believed to be connected, according to Kraig Troxell, Loudoun sheriff's spokesman. He added that there were no witnesses and no leads regarding suspects at this point.
