Theft Investigation Briefly Interrupts Service at Ballston Metro

A theft near the Ballston Metro station this afternoon led to Metro trains briefly being halted on the Orange and Silver lines.

The suspect reportedly fled into the station and possibly ran down the Metro tunnel from Ballston to Virginia Square. Metro Transit Police is checking the area but it is unclear whether the suspect has been located.

The victim did not wish to prosecute, according to an Arlington County Police spokeswoman.

Trains were halted for at least a few minutes due to police activity.
