Crime Roundup: Armed Man Robs CVS Pharmacy in Reston Town Center

Fairfax County police are searching for an armed man who robbed the CVS Pharmacy in Reston Town Center Sunday afternoon.

Police said the man showed a gun and took cash and property from the store at around 1:40 p.m. He was described as a white man wearing a green jacket and tan pants, police said.

In a separate incident in the Herndon area, two suspects stole cash from victims who were trying to buy a phone on Sunday around 1 p.m.

The suspects, who were dressed in dark clothing, displayed a weapon and demanded money as the victims negotiated a price for the phone. They were described as black men between the ages of 19 and 25.

The incident comes as local police warn of 20 home break-ins between September and January. The break-ins in Reston and Herndon follow a similar pattern. Homes, town homes and apartments near a walking path or woods were robbed, but local police declined to disclose how the reports may be connected.

    “In a separate incident in Herndon, two suspects stole cash from victims who were trying to buy phone on Sunday around 1 p.m.”

    They were buying phone? Is that a new street drug?

    Maybe track the man down by checking all parking meters, especially those that expired 1:45pm – if not found, issue parking ticket.

    Brazen time of day. What of BPX’s security force? Too busy lambasting folks for taking photos, and missed this opportunist?
