That and another larceny — the theft of a package from a residence on Great Passage Boulevard, a Great Falls address — were the sole Reston District items on the latest Fairfax County Police crime report.

FCPD has previously given tips to help avoid package theft. Among the suggestions are to require a signature upon delivery and/or have items delivered to your workplace.

From FCPD:

RESTON DISTRICT STATION

LARCENIES:
1000 block of Great Passage Boulevard, package from residence
11600 block of Plaza America Drive, tip jar from business

STOLEN VEHICLES:
None reported

FCPD also reported an incident involving a guinea pig being thrown from a balcony in the 2200 block of Castle Rock Square, which we reported Tuesday afternoon.

  • I don’t approve of stealing from tip jars (or from anywhere else), but one has to find the extra money to park at Reston Town Center from somewhere. :-/
