Two Teens Charged in Marco Polo Fire and Local Vandalism

Vienna and Fairfax County Police have arrested two teen boys and charged them with a series of crimes, including setting fire to the Marco Polo restaurant.

One of the teens is a 14-year-old Vienna resident; the other is a 13-year-old Reston resident, according to police.

The boys are being charged with both felony and misdemeanor crimes, including arson. Police say other charges are being filed in relation to a Nov. 4 vandalism of two historic government-owned buildings near Lahey Lost Valley Park, which caused several thousand dollars in damage.

The Oct. 14 fire destroyed most of the Marco Polo building, which had been vacant. There were no injuries. The site is planned to be redeveloped as a retail and townhouse complex.

The teens are also charged with the vandalism of several buses in the rear parking lot of the restaurant on Sept. 9.

The pair is being held in the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center.

Anyone with additional information about the case is asked to contact Officer Juan Vazquez at [email protected] or 703-255-7845.
