Back From Vacation, Vienna Locals Find House Items Missing, Used

Parents thought someone had entered their Vienna home and taken things while they were on vacation — not knowing their son’s friends had come over.

The parents, who live in the 200 block of Cedar Lane SE, had been on away since July 10, according to Vienna police.

More from the Vienna Police Department from a July 30 report:

When they arrived home, they found signs that someone had been in their apartment. Multiple items were moved, some items were missing, and kitchen items had been used. A neighbor advised they saw multiple people inside the residence and assumed they were family friends.

It was later determined that the resident’s juvenile son gave his key to friends and allowed them to use the apartment while the family was away.

Police counseled the son about “providing false to the police,” according to the report. “It was determined that no charges would be placed and the parents will handle the matter.”
