Dozens of Cars Damaged by BB Vandals

(Updated at 7:30 p.m.) Dozens of cars were vandalized overnight in North Arlington, police and residents say.

More than 70 cars had windows shot out by BB gun-wielding vandals, according to Arlington County Police Department spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. The crime spree was reported in neighborhoods north of I-66 and south of Lee Highway — neighborhoods like Waycroft-Woodlawn, Leeway Overlee and Westover.

The alleged vandals — two adult men — were arrested near the intersection of N. Lexington Street and 19th Street N. after a resident saw them drive by, called police and relayed a description of their vehicle, according to Sternbeck. They were identified by police as 20-year-old Christopher Albrant and 19-year-old Antonio Lopez, both of Arlington.

Two BB pistols and a .40 caliber handgun were found in the vehicle, Sternbeck said.

Albrant and Lopez are currently charged with 7 counts of destruction of property. The number of charges against them is expected to increase as police continue to investigate the crimes.
