Robbery Suspects Arrested After Dropping Wallet, Phone

Police car lights(Updated 3:15 p.m.) Two men were arrested and another is being sought by police after an alleged robbery that didn’t go quite as planned.

Arlington County Police say the three men robbed a woman of her purse at a hotel on the 2000 block of Jefferson Davis Highway, near Crystal City, around 11:30 p.m. this past Saturday. As they were running away, one of the suspects accidentally left a couple of things behind.

“As the subjects were fleeing, one dropped his wallet and cell phone, which were recovered by security,” according to the police report.

The butter-fingered suspect was arrested after he went back to the hotel to try to find his belongings, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. Another was arrested at his home a short time later.

“Muqtadir Mustafa, 19, of Arlington, Va. and Andre Costa, 19 of Arlington, Va. were arrested and charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery,” the police report said.

A third suspect, whose identity is now known to police, remains at large.

Attempted Robbery on Columbia Pike Ends With a Bang

Two men attempted to rob the 7-Eleven store at the corner of Columbia Pike and George Mason Drive early Sunday morning.

Police say a man with a gun entered the store at 3:25 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19, and demanded money from the cashier. A second suspect then entered the store and a firecracker suddenly exploded in his hand. Frightened by the apparently unplanned or mistimed fireworks, the suspects fled the scene empty-handed.

“The suspect with the firearm was described as a white male, approximately 5’8” tall with a medium build and black hair. He was wearing grey hoodie sweatshirt, a dark bandana around his face and black shorts,” according to the police report. “The second suspect was a black male, approximately 5’7” tall with a average build and was wearing a white v-neck tshirt and dark shorts.”

Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said there was no indication that the second suspect was seriously hurt by the firecracker. Police say they’re not sure why the suspect had the firecracker in the first place.

Crime Report: Guy Punches Bus, Exposes Himself

From this week’s Arlington County Police Department crime report:

DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY/EXPOSURE-ARREST 05/13/10, 3800 block of Wilson Boulevard. On May 13 at 6 pm, a man attempted to flag over a transit bus. When the bus did not stop, the suspect punched a window on the bus, breaking it. The suspect then exposed himself to the driver. Brian Lavoie, Jr, 28, of Arlington, was charged with Destruction of Property, Indecent Exposure and Drunk in Public. He was held on a $3,500 bond.

If your only goal is to get a bus to stop, then punching out one of its windows and exposing yourself to the driver is actually probably a good strategy. We’re guessing the bus stopped at that point.

However, if your strategy is to get the bus to stop and not go to jail, then it’s probably a bad idea. Plus, last time we checked bus windows are pretty thick, which could be painful if you punch one with enough force to break it.
