Most-Read Stories of 2019 (#11-15)

We’re counting down the top 20 most-read articles of 2019 this week and next week. Here’s the breakdown for list #11-15.

15. The abrupt closure of Reston Town Center’s Vapiano — which was caught in the middle of a suit alleging an international money laundering scheme in the business — perplexed readers and restaurant-goers. The location is still temporarily closed.

14. Amazon closed in on the area by acquiring a Herndon property. The 57-acre site has an assessed value of $80.7 million.

13. A South Lakes High School student was killed in a car crash in Oakton. Police said that speed may have been a factor in the incident.

12. Panera Bread also shuttered in Reston Town Center this month, leaving another vacancy in the town center. No word yet on what will replace the business.

11. A drama teacher at Herndon High School was arrested in connection with multiple child pornography and unlawful filming charges. Detectives found thousands of videos on devices owned by the teacher.

Look out for the #6-10 on the countdown next week.
