Vienna Crime Report: Police Called for Suspicious Women in Store

Last Wednesday an employee at Vienna Jewelry (131 W. Maple Ave.) noticed several women in the store “acting suspiciously” and called police, according to the monthly Vienna Police highlights.

The employee followed one of the women as she quickly exited a back room and fled out the side door with the other women to a waiting van. The vehicle took off northbound on Lawyers Road and then stopped a few blocks away from the store, with the women running off in different directions. Police found and identified some of the van’s occupants.

According to the report, the store employees are checking the store’s inventory but did not immediately notice anything missing.

Also in the crime report, food is showing up in some unwelcome places around Vienna.

A resident on the 500 block of Walker Street called the police to report that an unknown person dumped a large garbage bag full of dozens of loose donuts into the bed of his truck sometime after last Sunday (Nov. 4). Several donuts also wound up in front of the storm drain on the street. According to the tongue-in-cheek report on the incident, “the officer was upset to discover that the donuts were no longer edible… wild animals had gotten to those donuts before the officers could.”

Finally, two residents reported vandalism by eggs just days apart. On Oct. 29, a resident on the 900 block of Echols Street SE said someone threw eggs at one of her home’s windows. Then, on Halloween, a resident on the 400 block of Echols Street SE said someone threw eggs at both his vehicle parked in front of his residence and one of its second-level windows.
