Jason Brooks/FCPDThe 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.


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.

From the police report:

“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).

1900 block of Bowman Towne Drive, backpack from residence

2200 block of Wheelwright Court, packages from residence

    So, Mr. Brooks, I have to ask. Was all of the hassle which you are now enduring and will endure, worth those rims?

  • johnQPublic

    Great question Chuck….hopefully this type of garbage will remain off our streets.

    • Guest

      If they were garbage rims, why would someone steal them?

    • Mike M

      Don’t sweat guest. He can’t really face up up to half of life’s realities because they don’t fit his outlook.

  • The Constitutionalist

    Uh oh, someone’s about to get called a racist….

  • t172048

    Looks like a walking crime wave, good to get him off the street. I would bet he commits two or three criminal acts every day. Watch some prosecutor plea him down to criminal Trespass and walk.
