On July 28, a Reston resident was arrested in connection with a burglary on the 1400 block of Beaumeadow Court in Centreville. Chase Koon, 21, was arrested after police saw him attempt to enter the home through the front door.

Police responded to the scene when a resident called saying that someone was outside the home and was going to hurt their son. The suspect tried to get into the house by breaking windows and forcing the door open, according to Fairfax County Police Department. The homeowner was hit by the door when the man pushed it open, but was not injured.

Koon was arrested and charged with assault and battery, burglary with intent to assault, destruction of property, possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct.

Immediately after being released, police said Koon called police from a business on the 14000 block of Penrose Plaza and said he was going to harm employees there. Koon was arrested again and charged with disorderly conduct. He was then held without bond.

In other news, cash and items were taken during two separate incidents this week. A masked man came into the Sunoco on the 13000 block of Coppermine and demanded cash while holding a knife on July 24 at around 1:30 a.m. An undisclosed amount of money was taken.

Police described the suspect as a white man, between 25 and 30 years old and roughly six feet tall.

In a separate incident that happened sometime between July 20 and 23, someone entered a home on the 2500 block of Logan Wood Drive when the residents were out of town and took multiple electronic devices.

    How comforting to know that criminals are released after being arrested for breaking into homes. Hopefully Mr Koon doesn’t surface again on the streets for a while

    • Tom Mccauley

      Yes, agree.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    Get help, Mr. Koon. Life’s too short to spend it living from court date to court date.

    Not even sure where to begin with this one. smh
    What’s a felon to do to get a proper lock-down?
    My guess is that Chase had some bad people coming after him and felt more secure in jail. Good luck with that Chase. He may have been as disappointed as I am that they let him back out within a day.

    And, we have Reston’s Shadowood in the crime blotter once again.

    Considering the population density of the greater Herndon – Reston area, I’m surprised we haven’t seen more of this behavior…… So does that mean that greater density is a good thing?

  • I’d rather post as a guest

    The home owner in Centreville should have just shot him, and then the problem would have been solved.

    …there are three sides to every story. My heart goes out to this young man as I know him personally. The story listed above is not the full details of what really happened…..this is a case of someone helping the wrong person and getting the bad end of the stick…someone who should have made a better choice and not let his anger get the best of him even when other do you wrong…it takes humility to walk away and it doesn’t make you a weak person for doing so…..I’m glad they didn’t shoot him and I pray God and others given him chance to make the much needed correction…

    This is very disappointing journalism. There are many factual errors and no good journalist would attempt to tell only one side or half of the story. There is much more to this story than just a headshot and a few sentences from a police report. Please either do a better job next time in your reporting or don’t try to be a media outlet at all, Reston Now.
