Police Are Being Harassed by a Green Laser Pointer in Vienna

In yet another week of bizarre Vienna crime reports, someone has been targeting local police vehicles with a laser pointer.

The incident occurred on May 2 around 8:40 p.m at 400 Nutley Street S.W., according to a police report:

An officer was driving northbound on Nutley Street when his vehicle was struck multiple times with a green laser pointer. A Fairfax County Police Officer also advised his vehicles had been struck by the laser pointer that night. A similar incident happened to another officer a few weeks before this incident.

Other local crimes include an argument between an employee at IGS Diamonds (444 Maple Avenue E.) and a customer, where the customer said staff bent the prongs of a ring and swapped out the diamonds. The employee showed police photographs indicating this wasn’t the case.

According to the police report, “both parties were advised this was a civil matter.”
