Four Burglaries Targeting Gold Linked to Others
Fairfax County Crime Solvers is asking for the public's assistance
in identifying the suspects of a series of burglaries that have been
occurring in the Sully, Fair Oaks, Reston, and West Springfield police
districts. On Tuesday, October 27, four homes were broken into; the 5300
block of Poplar Valley Court, the 12700 block of Lady Summerset Lane,
the 9300 block of Cumbria Valley Drive, and the 8400 block of White
Haven Circle. All the burglaries have occurred in the daytime hours and
the suspects are primarily seeking gold jewelry. Other items including
electronics have also been reported stolen.
There are over 20 burglary cases which have been linked to these
and possibly more that police are looking for connections. Detectives
are investigating several leads but remind homeowners to call police
regarding any strangers going door to door or acting suspiciously in
their neighborhoods.
The suspects have been described as two Hispanic or Middle Eastern
men in their late 20s to early 30s and one Hispanic woman.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers by

Abduction/Malicious Wounding in Lorton
West Springfield Police District - Police have charged a 40-year-old man
with the abduction and malicious wounding as the result of an incident that took place on a path near Furnace Road and Lorton Road on Monday, October 26 shortly after 11 a.m. A 52-year-old woman was walking on a trail on the grounds behind the former Lorton Prison, now owned by Fairfax County. A man approached her from behind, forced her to the ground and then punched her numerous times in the head and face. The victim struggled and eventually fended off her attacker. She sustained non life-threatening injuries.
The subsequent investigation led to the identification and arrest of Milan
Boda, of 8238 Burning Forest Court in Springfield. He was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and charged with abduction and malicious wounding.
Detectives would like to hear from anyone who might have witnessed this
attack, or from anyone who might have been the victim of a similar attack in the same area.

October 23, 2009 Incident Report
Halloween is quickly approaching and many youngsters will be out and about during dark hours crossing the streets. Many cars frequently use residential streets as a cut-through during high volume traffic hours. Fairfax County Police will be enforcing violations involving stop signs, speeding, and pedestrian cross walks. For the past two weeks, message boards in the Sully police district were announcing the upcoming campaign and reminding motorists to drive safely. Officers from the motor squad and Sully district station will be aggressively enforcing traffic laws the last two weeks of October. In the West Springfield district, crossing guards, crime prevention officers, neighborhood patrol units, and auxiliary officers will be educating the public by distributing safety flyers and handing out treat bags for children. DWI directed patrols will be occurring in the Franconia district. All other district stations will also have officers out in numbers to make sure trick-or-treaters have a safe Halloween night. Here are a few safety tips to remember when walking along streets during nighttime hours:
  • Always use crosswalks and sidewalks
  • Carry a flashlight
  • Wear reflective stickers on costumes
  • Use face paint rather than full-face masks that block your view
  • Only trick-or-treat at houses you know
  • Travel in groups with an adult
  • Notify police about any suspicious person or activity
  • Inspect candy before children eat it
