Crime Report: Criminals Take a Holiday

Arlington County police carAfter a fairly busy week of police-related stories last week, this week the Arlington County Police Department crime report is as sparse as we can ever remember.

Granted, the crime report does not include an attempted child abduction in Pentagon City, on which we reported yesterday, nor a police warning about a fake jewelry scam.

Playing a role in the slow crime week: very cold weather last week (crime reports are for the period from Thursday to Wednesday) and, potentially, the approaching holiday.

This week’s crime report includes just two incidents deemed noteworthy by police, both burglaries. From ACPD:

BURGLARY, 2016-12160062, 900 block of S. George Mason Drive. Between 3:25 a.m. and 3:40 a.m. on December 16, an unknown subject(s) forced entry into a business and stole an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect is described as a white male, with a slim to average build. He was wearing a black north face jacket, dark pants with red stripes down the side, dark shoes, gloves, and a dark backpack.

BURGLARY, 2016-12180152, 2900 block of S. Glebe Road. Between 12:00 a.m. on December 1 and 11:30 a.m. on December 18, an unknown subject(s) entered a residence and stole numerous items of value. There is no suspect(s) description.
