This Week in Crime: Crime and (eventual) punishment

Police finally made an arrest in a September carjacking on Rt. 7, if by "arrest" you mean that the guy turned himself in.

A 52-year-old Reston woman was the victim of a carjacking at about 1:15 a.m. on Saturday, September 27. The woman was in a parking lot near the intersection of Dranesville Road and Leesburg Pike. She was standing next to her 2004 Toyota Corolla when an unknown man pushed her aside and took her car. She sustained minor injuries. The car was later discovered abandoned in Washington D.C.
An investigation by Fairfax County Police detectives resulted in the arrest of a 27-year-old Sterling man. He was charged with one count of carjacking.

Also, an employee at Reston's Learning Tree International was sentenced to six-plus years in prison for possessing child pornography.
