This Week in Crime: Purse Snatching Near Southgate, and a Toothless Bit of White-Collar Crime

toothbr2.jpgIt's been a slow week or so in Reston crime, with the only incident report approaching even vague menace being this purse snatching near Southgate in South Reston:

Two men robbed a 44-year-old woman of her purse in the 2200 block of Stone Wheel Drive on Tuesday, February 16 around 10:40 p.m. The suspects were described as black, about 25 years old. They were between 5 feet 7 and 5 feet 8 inches tall and 190 pounds, with short, black hair and brown eyes. One suspect wore a black jacket and black pants; the other wore a khaki jacket with black pants. The victim did not require medical attention.
Also, a "bag of toothbrushes" was stolen from a business in the 11100 block of Sunrise Valley Drive. Wouldn't that be a dentist's office? And don't they give those away for free, generally speaking?

More questions than answers this first Monday in March.


  1. Southgate: Reston's own Cabrini Green.

    There are some toothbrush bandits working over in LoCo. I'm just wondering how many times these assclowns will have to strike before they figure out that it's not "wipe your teeth and brush your butt." No doubt, they graduate Sigma Cum Laude from LCPS.

  2. What? No update from the Wiehle planning meeting? Pretty bad when the head of the board and the Lead from the Company doing the build can't figure out the difference between 1 way and 2 way roads.

    Best comment was, "how do you plan on mitigating light glare off the parking lot at night?" Hmmm... black matte paint on the ground? Your pants on the ground? Give Reston light people!

  3. Hey, there's your case study in why we don't want low-income housing, right there!

  4. Giving one's own lawfully obtained tooth brushes away is lawful; stealing them is not.
