In the Town of Herndon, thousands of dollars in jewelry was stolen from a home in the 800 block of Sycamore Court last month. Police say someone entered the home on June 14 and removed two cardboard boxes full of jewelry, valued at about $3,000. However, the victim — who didn’t report the incident until June 20 — declined any further investigation.

In addition, a Herndon man was charged in Loudoun County last week after a reported larceny at Dulles Town Center. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office reported on June 29 at about 10 a.m. to the Sears department store. The suspect in the larceny, 37-year-old Eric Campos of Herndon, was found in the area of Lakeland Drive and Route 7. Campos was arrested and charged with grand larceny and driving on a revoked license. He was released from the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a personal recognizance bond.

    Very busy holiday weekend for the opportunistic criminals!

    • vdiv

      Many of the incidents reported are prior to this weekend, we probably have yet to hear about it.

  • vdiv

    Care to speculate about a link between the state of the local economy and the cadence of opportunity crime?

    • Willie Reston

      You put forth the question, so why don’t you lead off with your thoughts on the matter?

      • vdiv

        Can think of three basic hypotheses:

        a) crime and economy are not strongly related;
        b) worsening of the local economy increases crime (and vice versa);
        c) worsening of the surrounding economy (relative improvement of the local one) increases local crime.

        The case for (a) is not that interesting though important if true.

        The case for (b) is what worries me. Our economy is not doing well and an increase in crime is one of the indicators for that.

        The case for (c) is best described by John Dillinger, that’s where the money is. Also a worry.

        • Willie Reston

          Are you sure that local crime is on the rise? I’m not saying that it isn’t, but I haven’t heard that it is, so I’m wondering why it seems like you’re starting with that assumption and then looking for an explanation for it.

          • vdiv

            No, hope not, though perception is skewed once crime nears by. I am worried that the local economy is not doing as well as all the development plans and new construction would otherwise indicate. The drastic decrease in Metro ridership for example cannot just be explained by the problems with the Metro. The lower passenger count at Dulles and the office building vacancy rate are also poignant.

        • Doors locked

          I would make a guess for c but also noticed two things causing consternation

          . Suspicious seemingly unrelated vehicles cruising the area, most recently MD plates – possibly scanning for ppportunity crime during daytime

          . Opoid crisis in DC and MD spilling over (see above)

          That said, local police are doing an excellent job in keeping us safe.
