Fairfax County Police Fairfax County Police’s undercover narcotics unit made several arrests in a dramatic drug bust at North Point Village Center Thursday night.

According to witnesses, about six unmarked black SUVS and sedans surrounded a car with New York plates in the parking lot about 9:30 p.m.

A witness said undercover narcotics officers wearing balaclavas quickly surrounded the vehicle. The occupants, a man and a woman, were removed, placed in cuffs and frisked and squad members searched the vehicle, the witness said.

The suspects were taken away in a FCPD squad car.

Fairfax County Police confirmed that the narcotics unit did participate in an apprehension at North Point Thursday. Due to the undercover nature and the ongoing investigation, they will not give further details, said police spokesman Lucy Caldwell.

Caldwell did say that a “significant amount” of drug material was confiscated.”

“FCPD OCN works in an undercover capacity across Fairfax County and targets illegal drug activity and transactions as part of their core mission,” she said. “Often, these cases are not publicized due to continued investigation and active nature of these types of investigations.”

“In this case, there was a significant amount of drug material confiscated and taken off of the streets of Fairfax County; including marijuana, oxycontin and a variety of prescription drugs.”

  • John

    Children can get marijuana at any school in the county & prescription drugs in a majority of parents medicine cabinets as they are prescribed like candy from doctors getting kickbacks from big pharma . Keep on fighting the good fight Kevin

      Yep, they should change the signs at the schools: “School Free Drug Zone”.

    OMG! Crime–and drug crime at that–in NORTH Reston. I thought RA banned crime north of the toll road.

      They must have been scared away by the new “police presence” at Hunter’s Woods.

    • Delsin Rowe

      I recently reported “Suspicious Activity”, aka a drug deal, behind Lake Newport.

  • Michael Heilman

    Drugs have been a part of Reston for the 40+yrs I have lived here.

      Drugs were probably used for the creation of the Reston Community in 1968.

      Ken Plum likes to keep his supporters mellow and groovy.

    How much you wanna bet there was some Meth in there too. Marijuana, Oxycontin, and Meth are the drugs of choice for upstate New York slack jawed hicks.

    It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, . . .

    New York degenerates, go back to New York and take your crack pipes with you!

    Can you people make relevant, constructive commentary vs. trying to illustrate how funny you are (not)? That’s not the purpose of the comments section…get over yourselves. Geez

    • Greg

      And your judging lecture is. Right.

    • KristinCarol

      Get the stick out of your ***

      • BB

        Is this how you speak to others in real life?

        • CC

          Nah… in real life we use real names when we get all preachy and s***. Nowhere to hide baby!

          • CarolKristin

            BB, we should know better. Talking to people like this is like talking to a drunk. They just don’t get it. I’m done with my comments here. It’s obviously a forum for the ignorant. CC, why aren’t you using your real name?
