The Fairfax County Police Department says charges have been filed against a man accused of stealing wheels from vehicles last year.
Jason Brooks, 38, was charged recently with seven counts of grand larceny and seven counts of larceny with the intent to sell stolen property. The Maryland resident was already in custody in Loudoun County, on unrelated charges.
Police say Brooks has been connected with seven different tire and rim thefts in Fairfax County between March and July. Two of the incidents took place in Herndon.
SHOTS FIRED IN HERNDON
Police are investigating a shots-fired incident that took place Saturday evening in Herndon.
Officers responded to a home on Poener Place, near Hutchison Elementary School, for a report of several people at the door with guns. The caller also told police shots may have been fired at the home. Arriving officers say they heard shots, and a bullet was found at the scene.
“Four suspects fled in a white SUV and a lookout was broadcast. The suspect vehicle was stopped a short time later in the Town of Herndon. The suspects have been taken into custody for interviews and further investigation. An extensive check of the area by Fairfax 1 and K9 did not yield any additional suspects.”
No injuries were reported.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).
