Local police are seeking the public’s help to identify two men suspected of robbing a gas station on August 28 at 1:10 a.m.

Police believe two African American men wearing masks entered the 7-Eleven on 2303 Soapstone Drive and stole tobacco products and cash at gunpoint. The men were described as average build, between 5’10” and 6′.

The Fairfax County Police Department also reported the following incidents in recent days:


1800 block of Cameron Glen Drive, package from residence

10000 block of Carpers Farm Court, jewelry from residence

12900 block of Highland Crossing Drive, wallet from location

1800 block of Jonathan Way, watch from residence

1700 block of Wainwright Drive, clothing from residence


1900 block of Villaridge Drive, 1992 Toyota Camry

    It is pretty common these days for the press to refer to “local police” (as opposed to out-of-town police?) in news articles. Given that there are four jurisdictions with police/sheriff departments within the broad circle covered by Reston Now, how about naming the department rather than calling it “local”?

    Isnt asking for help in an investigation racist ?

  • CE

    I didn’t know that they sold gas at this 7-11. Are the gas pumps inside the building by the slurpee machine?

    • Rational Reston

      Maybe that’s what was stolen

    • I Miss Karen

      This website is just absolutely terrible these days.

  • Greg

    No wonder the “local police” (or, perhaps, Reston Now) need help: there is no gas station on Soapstone Drive.

  • MC

    Don’t know if the inaccurate info is in the address or the location both together doesn’t make sense

    • Mike M

      New name for the whole periodical: Reston Vaguely

  • Comma was right

    Gasoline would have been so much easier to steel. Now we have have to get the ATF involved.
