Crime Roundup: Waterview Cluster Resident Robbed, Car Stolen as He Slept

A Lake Anne-area resident was robbed while he slept last week.

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, officers responded to the 11400 block of Waterview Cluster early Sept. 5 to a report of a burglary. The victim said he went to bed at about 11 p.m. the previous night and, while he was in bed, someone entered his home and stole his car keys, wallet and two laptops before leaving in his car.

Police say the victim’s car was later recovered and searched for evidence. No suspect information is available, they say.

A pair of midday burglaries in the Great Falls area were also reported to FCPD last Thursday.

In Herndon, HPD says a commercial burglary took place in the 1200 block of Herndon Parkway on Labor Day. An unknown suspect or suspects broke a window, entered the business, and stole a computer and cash valued at approximately $250. The case remains under investigation, HPD says.

Then, in the 400 block of Madison Forest Drive on Saturday, HPD says a caller reported a suspect was spotted stealing items from an open car. Several other vehicles, mostly unlocked, in the area were also entered. A total of more than $800 worth of property was stolen, police say, and some was recovered after the suspect fled. An FCPD helicopter and K9 unit assisted in the search for the suspect, but he was not found. HPD says the suspect “is described as possibly being a Hispanic male in his mid- 20s wearing dark clothing and a baseball cap.” This case remains under investigation as well.

In Loudoun County, police say they responded to the 43000 block of Watercrest Square in Chantilly at about 2 a.m. Sunday for a report of a man “ringing the doorbells and acting disorderly.” Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office deputies located the suspect — 30-year-old Corey P. Robertson of Herndon — and they say he “resisted arrested and he did not comply with lawful commands from the deputy.” Robertson was charged with assault on law enforcement, obstruction of justice and public intoxication and was released on a personal recognizance bond.
