Purse Taken in Home Burglary Leads to FCPD Chopper Search

police line1Fairfax County Police are investigating a home burglary that took place in the 1500 block of Chatham Colony Court in Reston on Monday.

Residents of the home called police about 9:30 p.m. Monday and told them they were on the porch of their home when a suspect or suspects entered through an unlocked door, grabbed a purse, then fled on foot, police spokesman Lucy Caldwell said.

The police helicopter responded to the scene and found possible suspects in Lake Anne Park, said Caldwell.

Other FCPD resources also responded, including officers and K-9 units. Police briefly blocked streets in the area to try and isolate the suspect, who was not located.

No arrests were made but the investigation is continuing, said Caldwell.
