This Week in Crime: Annoying the Noid, Ikea Fever, and What's a Few Missing Guns Among Friends?

noid2.gifNothing annoys the Noid quite like a 17-year-old taking his pizza delivery vehicle for a midnight joyride around our lovely earth-toned community:

A 17-year-old boy stole a 21-year-old man’s car around 12:45 a.m. on Saturday, January 15; the victim was delivering a pizza in the 2200 block of Sanibel Drive.

Officers nearby located the suspect driving the 2000 Ford Expedition in the area of Sunset Hills Road and Wiehle Avenue. After a brief pursuit, the suspect was apprehended. He was taken to the juvenile detention center and charged with grand larceny and felony speed to elude.
Meanwhile, two Reston men and a Herndon man got into a bit of trouble while visiting beautiful Dumfries, which is kind of near Ikea... so maybe they were looking for some semi-disposable Scandinavian furniture when things got out of hand? We're not entirely sure:
Two Reston men and a Herndon man are facing gun charges in connection with a shooting that occurred Tuesday in the 6400 block of Marshall Court in Dumfries.

Prince William County police arrested Lamar Antonio Maurice Johnson, 20, of 1650 Sierra Woods Dr. in Reston (possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, reckless handling of a firearm); Karma Momolu Korvah, 20, 1650 Sierra Woods Dr., Reston (possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, reckless handling of a firearm); and Jared Todd Davis, 19, of 12004 Cheviot Dr. in Herndon (reckless handing of a firearm).

Witnesses heard shots fired and saw the three men leaving the scene in a vehicle, police said. One of them men tried to run away from police on foot, and Virginia State Police, US Park Rangers and Prince William Police K-9s were used to search for him.
The reason for the shooting is unknown and there were no injuries.
Apparently they still haven't found the weapon used in the shooting. That's also a problem in the 2000 bock of Beacon Heights Drive in South Reston, where two guns were stolen from a residence. Which shouldn't be anything to worry about, unless you happen to live in Dumfries or some other exotic port of call along the I-95 corridor.

Finally, a 37-year-old Reston man was arrested on drug-related charges whilst visiting our beautiful neighbor to the west:
Jason Leamnson, 37, of Reston, was arrested for alleged possession of drug paraphernalia at 7:18 p.m. on Jan. 7 in the 400 block of Elden Street.
Man, they sell everything at K-mart these days!


  1. Sunset Hills Road and Wiehle Avenue?

    Surely looking for parking for the esyouvee!

  2. I used to live on Sierra Woods. Don't remember anyone like that living there!
