FCPD: More Residential Burglaries Targeting Minorities

A string of residential burglaries first reported in December has continued, with 10 additional burglaries that are believed to be related to the initial 13, according to police.

Fairfax County Police say the home burglaries “are committed by a group of professional individuals, mainly targeting victims of Asian or Middle Eastern descent.” They’re asking for the public’s help in solving the crimes.

More from an FCPD press release from late last week (burglaries in the Tysons Reporter coverage area are highlighted in bold.):

Detectives continue to ask for the public’s help in solving numerous residential burglaries in the McLean, Reston, and Fair Oaks police districts. In addition to the 13 addresses we released in December, detectives are also looking at ten other cases that may be related.  Below is a list of the additional cases being investigated:

  • 8400 block of Reflection Lane, Vienna
  • 8200 block of Falstaff Road, McLean
  • 4800 block of Muddler Way, Fairfax
  • 12500 block of Cerromar Place, Fairfax
  • 1300 block of Earnestine Street, McLean
  • 1400 block of Woodhurst Boulevard, McLean
  • 7800 block of Loughran Road, McLean
  • 9700 block of Middleton Ridge Road, Vienna
  • 10000 block of Park Royal Drive, Great Falls
  • 1600 block of Admirals Hill Court, Vienna

After the initial burglaries were reported near the end of 2018, officers and detectives increased proactive patrols, met with community members, and continue to remain vigilant in identifying the suspects involved. It is believed that the crimes are committed by a group of professional individuals, mainly targeting victims of Asian or Middle Eastern descent. In many of the cases, detectives found entry was made through the rear door of the victims’ homes. The burglaries occurred primarily in the late afternoon and evening hours. Total losses are in excess of a million dollars.
