Morning Notes

Car Thefts in East Falls Church — “The reporting party had returned to their vehicle and found the door ajar, the vehicle rummaged through and personal items stolen. During the course of the investigation, it was discovered eight additional vehicles had been rummaged through with no items reported stolen, one vehicle had a window damaged and one vehicle was reported stolen.” [ACPD]

Reflecting on Arlington’s HQ Wins — “Both moves have a symbolic feel given no large staff changes or office expansions coincided with either, but the cachet it delivers for the region as the premier place for contractors can have a ‘broader multiplier effect,’ luring more employers in the defense industry supply chain, according to Jack McDougle, CEO of the Greater Washington Board of Trade. McDougle said at the time he sees the Raytheon and Boeing moves as a sign the D.C. region is ‘starting to really come into our own’ as a tech startup region.” [Washington Business Journal]

Med Device Startup Growing — “Arlington’s OxiWear Inc. is shipping the first batches of its wearable oxygen-monitoring product to consumers and fitness-related companies, and raising millions in new funding — all with an eye toward achieving its ultimate goal: a go-ahead from regulators to market the product as a medical device. The med-tech startup, whose earpiece monitors blood-oxygen levels and alerts the wearer when they drop, expects to generate $3.5 million in revenue in 2023.” [Washington Business Journal]

Incident Outside of Hospital — From Dave Statter: “A rush hour drama for commuters at 8:30 am on N. George Mason at Virginia Hospital Center. Initial reports a man made threats & claimed to be armed. He tripped running from @ArlingtonVaPD & was detained.” [Twitter]

How to Get Rid of a VCR — From Arlington’s Dept. of Environmental Services: “‘I’m sorry I ruined your lives and crammed 11 cookies into the VCR.’ How to dispose of a VCR properly in Arlington.” [Twitter]

Drive Sober, Stay Safe — From Arlington County: “1 in 5 fatal or severe crashes in Arlington involve alcohol. Make plans to get home safely after celebrating the holidays. Learn more about the County’s Vision Zero Program…” [Twitter]

It’s Friday — Rain in the morning, then windy and turning bitterly cold. High of 51 and low of 15. Sunrise at 7:26 am and sunset at 4:52 pm. []
