Fairfax County Police Two burglaries on Pinecrest Road near Fox Mill early Saturday ended with the arrest of a teenager.

Residents of a home in the 12800 block of Pinecrest Road told Fairfax County Police they were awakened by noises coming from the lower level of their house about 3:29 a.m.

One of the residents yelled, causing the suspect to flee. The victims did not require medical attention, police said.

About 10 minutes later, a resident in the 12900 block of Pinecrest Road told police they heard noises from the basement of the home and called police.

After a search, officers located the suspect and arrested him in a car nearby, said police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell. The 17-year-old boy was charged with burglary, and police said they believe he is responsible for both incidents. The victims did not require medical attention, police said.

Last week, a couple on Triple Crown Road, less than a mile away, were also surprised by a burglary while they were home. The burglar got away with cash and other household items. It is not known if last week’s incident was related to the Saturday incidents.
