Herndon Police Warn of Increase in Stolen Vehicles and Car Break-Ins

Local police warn of an uptick in the number of stolen vehicles and items stolen from vehicles in the Town of Herndon.

In a statement, the Herndon Police Department encouraged residents to lock their cars, take valuables inside and avoid leaving the car running when drivers or passengers are not inside.

County officials encouraged residents to take the following steps to protect their vehicles:

  • Install an anti-theft system in your vehicle
  • Etch your car’s vehicle identification number on each window
  • On an incline, leave your vehicle in park or in gear with the wheels turned toward the curb or another obstruction
  • Keep vehicle locked at all times, even when driving

Police indicated that most of the incidents reported in the last week were avoidable.
