Loudoun vandals target open garages

Vandals snuck into two open garages in Loudoun, spray painting one vehicle and turning on a garden hose in another, authorities said.

The first incident happened Saturday in the 42900-block of Brookton Way in Ashburn. In that instance, Loudoun County Sheriff's officials said, a vehicle inside was spray painted and a running hose was left on inside the garage.

The following day, a similar crime occurred at a home in the 20200 block of Macglashan Terrace in Ashburn, authorities said. In that instance, someone went into an open garage, put a garden hose inside a vehicle and turned it on. Cleaning products were emptied inside the vehicle, and a GPS unit was stolen. In addition, the suspect tampered with a breaker box.

Loudoun Sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell said investigators think the incidents likely are related.

There are a lot of pointless people in this world.

The little punks usually just steal beer out of people's garages. This is just wrong.

they'd do wise to remember that this isn't Maryland. That is if they don't want their lead content to increase.
