Michael Jesse McLong, who has no fixed address, was charged with burglary and possession of burglary tools in connection with the break-in Monday.

The Carlton House employee called the cops to report that a man had forced his way into the building on the 11800 block of Sunset Hills Road about 9 p.m. that day, police said. Authorities later found McLong and took him to the the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

    I’d like to pull the thread on this dude and his deed. So, where did he come from? Why is he operating in Reston? At the Carlton House? Is a certain establishment enabling his presence here? Did he leverage the unpatrolled W&OD to gain access?
    What was he after? These are the questions I asked a pest control expert when I found a few [email protected] beetles in my house. He had answers. Now I know know more about the nature of the problem and how to prevent it. I am concerned that too many in Reston don’t want to understand crime in our community because the realities are “incorrect.”

    “The Carlton House employee called the cops to report that a man…”

    Well, at least he didn’t call the “PO PO”.

        His intentions were good, he only wanted a meal.

          So he invested in burglary tools.

            Sorry was referring to our clerk in the censorship department.

            If you think {s|he} has burglary tools perhaps get a fire wall.

    I can’t believe it, we were all so scared, but we’re safe now.
