Crime Roundup: Police Department Fires Reston Police Officer Charged in Baby’s Death

A police officer who last worked in the Reston District Station and was charged in connection with the death of his six-month-old daughter was fired on Friday (Sept. 28).

Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler Jr. fired Jason Colley, 38, following his arrest in Maryland in connection with the baby’s death, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Colley, of Monrovia, Md., turned himself in after an indictment was signed in late August by a Maryland judge. He was charged with child abuse in the first degree resulting in death, child abuse in the first degree resulting in severe physical injury and felony assault in the first degree. The baby died on in October last year.

Roessler Jr. called the charges against Colley “abhorrent.” No other information was released by the police department about the incident.

Colley was relieved of all law enforcement powers on April 20 when Fairfax County police learned he was a suspect in the care.

In a separate incident, a man was robbed on Friday while walking near Hunters Woods Shopping Center at around 1:30 p.m. The suspect assaulted the victim and stole personal items from him when he said he did not have any money. Police described the suspect as a white male approximately 5’11” – 6’2″ and about 150 to 180 pounds. 

Sometime between Sept. 18 and 26, a man was found sleeping inside a vacant house on the 12000 block of Kinsley Place. The owner of the house discovered a man in his 20s who appeared to be sleeping inside the home as it underwent repairs, according to police.

    ” . . . a man was robbed on Friday while walking near Hunters Woods Shopping Center.”

    This did not happen. Hunters Woods is a low crime area. 😉

    • Pls clarify

      The suspect is white so it did not happen?

        I see. You are desperately trying to put words in my mouth so you can call me [email protected] I’d say nice try, but it wasn’t. You see, when anyone noted this was a crime ridden area, they were called [email protected] But as I note above hypocrisy is hypocrisy. [email protected] has nothing to do with it. But if this crime turns out to be a false report, I will be both amused and amazed.

        • Thanks

          Just checking your heart beat.

          • Why do you bother?

            Mike is an all-or-nothing guy – either it happens ALL THE TIME or NEVER.

          • Mike M

            Wait, slick. It happened here. In yet another case.

    Mr Colley looks like a disgusting pig

      There is the question about what can slip through the quality control net.

    People steal airbags from cars? That’s a thing?
