Vienna Police Working ‘Nonstop’ to Crack Gun Store Burglary Case

Vienna police are urging people to send in tips for their investigation of a burglary at a local gun store on Maple Avenue.

Deputy Chief of Police Dan Janickey told the Vienna Town Council last night that detectives are working “nonstop” on the case.

Janickey said that police showed up at the Vienna Arsenal (386 Maple Ave E.) right around when the store’s owner was checking on an alarm that sounded around 6 a.m. last Monday (March 2).

“We responded and found a forced entry into a second-story window where they were able to gain entry and steal approximately 25 guns,” he said.

The police department received some “useful information” through NextDoor, Janickey said, urging people to reach out to the police department if they have any information.

Janickey said that the police department is working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the store’s owner to determine what types and models of guns were stolen.

The Vienna Arsenal has alarm and camera systems, along with metal bars on its windows, he said.

People with any information about the case are asked to contact Detective Leroux at 703-255-6322 or email him at [email protected].
