Teen, Young Accomplice End Stolen Car Joy Ride in Reston

Fairfax County Police A 19-year old Reston resident has been charged with grand larceny after she found lost keys and, along with her 12-year-old cousin, took a car from Fair Oaks Mall before being apprehended.

Fairfax County Police said a shopper at Fair Oaks Mall, age 20, accidentally left the keys to her 2015 Volkswagen Beetle in a store at the mall Tuesday afternoon.

Police said Paris Blackshear, 19, of  Reston, found the keys. She and her 12-year-old cousin located the car in the parking lot using the car’s electronic key fob.

The suspects drove the VW to Washington, D.C. and picked up Blackshear’s boyfriend and then drove to an area off of Sunrise Valley Drive in Reston.

Eventually, the VW’s owner realized that her vehicle was missing and reported it to police. An Auto Theft detective from FCPD’s Major Crimes Division utilized the VW’s built-in GPS system to track the vehicle and directed patrol officers to it. The occupants were safely taken into custody.

Blackshear was charged with grand larceny, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and having no operator’s license. The 12-year-old was released to her parents.
