Stolen Tires Tally Reaches Two Dozen in Tysons Area

The number of stolen tires reported in the Tysons area has now reached two dozen this year.

Tysons Reporter has been keeping an eye on where wheels have been reported stolen — dubbing the thief(s) the “Tysons Tire Bandit(s).”

The 24 reports span from Merrifield and the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Metro station area up to Tysons, according to the Fairfax County Police Department’s daily crime recaps. (Fairfax County’s weekday police recaps are not comprehensive lists of every incident and the addresses are approximate.)

Some of the areas had multiple reports, including:

  • four reports in the 1500 block of Westbranch Drive
  • three reports in the 7900 block of Jones Branch Drive
  • two reports in the 9400 block of Lee Hwy
  • two reports in the 1500 block of Lincoln Way

A few of the incidents also include stolen rims.

The robberies have mostly occurred in the residential areas of rapidly urbanizing Tysons and Merrifield.

FCPD recaps noted between one to five stolen tire reports per month this year. The most recent incident was noted in the Monday (Sept. 23) recap.
