Crime reports provided by Fairfax County Police Department in the month of September, plotted in the interactive map above, show a wide variety of incidents through the Reston District Station. Use the icon in the top left corner of the map to toggle the types of crimes displayed.

In total, FCPD’s September reports included the following breakdown of criminal incidents in the area:

  • 65 larcenies
  • 7 burglaries
  • 3 robberies
  • 1 stolen vehicle
  • 1 case of shots fired (gunfire exchanged near the Southgate Community Center)

The 65 larcenies marks a continued trend, as the number increases from 64 in August and 61 in July. In both May and June, the number was below 50.

The seven burglary reports include multiple incidents of people being awakened by strangers in their home. Another burglar took a man’s wallet, car keys and laptops before stealing in his car.

The three robberies include the armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver in Deepwood, a teen jumped in the area of Glade Drive and Pinecrest Road, and a theft from a Herndon gas station.

Residents also continue to report the sounds of late-night gunshots, though police have found nothing of interest in many investigations.

We interviewed Capt. Ron Manzo, commander of the Reston District Station, in September. He maintained that it is important to keep perspective, as the number of crimes that take place within the Reston District Station is relatively small.

“Reston is a safe community, [and] Fairfax County is a safe county,” Manzo told us.

Anyone with information about any of these crimes should call 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), or text “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637).

The Reston District Station of FCPD covers Reston, Great Falls and portions of Herndon and Vienna.

Fairfax County’s police reports are not comprehensive lists of every police event in the stated time frame. Addresses shown indicate blocks and not specific locations, unless otherwise noted. This data was compiled using the reports released by police between Sept. 1 and Sept. 30, meaning some of the incidents occurred in late August.
