    foot chase and MJ doesn t go well together

    It’s really fascinating to have a face on some of the Nightstalkers around here. Names are interesting too. Did they have any “known address?” Looks like they are working late. I think the Nightstalkers Criminal Handbook says knock it off before 4:45 AM or the chance of witnesses skyrockets. Busted! But you have to admire their work ethic.

    Is the false information provided in respect to where they claim residency and more to the point, legal residency. Is it possible these two people were “undocumented”

  • sheik yerbouti

    Its good to see two drug addicts have been removed from society.

      They’ll be back out before the weekend.

        I hope they hold them until after the holidays. We don’t need them breaking into shoppers cars at RTC, and it would be nice to be able to grab a bite to eat without getting shanked at Clydes.

        • Trump

          The liberals will see to it that these two are free by the weekend. They will also be compensated losses that could have made from stealing, while they were incarcerated. Go ahead and pay for their college and give them an apartment in Reston Town Center.

    BUILD THAT WALL AROUND RESTON NOW! (No, NOT the digital newspaper!) We can’t have these dang furriners (even native born ones) slipping into our community and carrying out these heinous acts against us.


    • Trump

      Passports required to enter / leave Reston. Legal status and outstand warrents checked upon re-entry. All west bound Silver Line traffic must off board before East Fall Church stop for search.

      That was a great TV show, I hope JJ Abrams tries to reboot that franchise once Peter Dinklage is done with game of thrones.

      The real fantasy island is the liberal one. In their fantasy, when Salvadorans (or Somalians or Syrians etc. etc.) immigrate here, as soon as their feet touch the magic dirt of Reston, they stop acting like Salvadorans (or Somalians or Syrians etc. etc.) and behave like good little white liberals. This fantasy can survive endless and often painful and expensive contact with reality.
