This Week in Crime: The Pineapple Express, Only in Reston and Not Funny

A Reston man was arrested last week for allegedly growing marijuana at his home on Monaghan Drive.

A man was arrested for allegedly growing marijuana at his home in the 2100 block of Monaghan Drive on Wednesday, March 18. Officers went to the house to serve an arrest warrant around 9:45 a.m. They were allowed into the house and did not locate the person they were looking for. The officers did discover several marijuana plants growing inside a closet and some drug paraphernalia. He was charged with felony cultivation of marijuana and felony possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
Also, while our favorite serial bank robber has moved on to Fair Lakes, we're still having the usual problems with people getting robbed while out on midnight strolls through the scenic wonders of South Reston:
A 33-year-old Reston man was robbed on Monday, March 16. The victim was walking on a path near Colts Neck Road and Winterthur Lane around 12:05 a.m. when two teenage boys approached him. One of them punched him; they took his shoes and sweat shirt and fled. They could only be described as black and in their teens. The victim did not require medical treatment.
Must have been nice shoes.
