Police say Georgia thieves with ties to Virginia staged break-ins
Within just two weeks, Fairfax County police allege one of the burglars posed as a flower delivery person several times before the group broke into homes after finding no one was home.
In four of the burglaries, a woman approached the home carrying flowers and knocked on the door. When no one answered, she returned to the car and a short time later, two men forced their way into the house and stole valuables, including jewellery, cash and wallets.
Police say the suspects concealed their identities by tampering with home surveillance cameras. Similar robberies were reported on the following days:
- Dec. 28 – 900 block of Dominion Reserve Drive, McLean at 6 p.m
- Dec. 29 – 1100 block of Bishopgate Way, Reston at 6 p.m
- January 1 – 1100 block of Windrock Drive, McLean at 2 a.m
- January 8 – 11000 block of Lance Lane, Oakton at 5:30 p.m
- Jan. 9 – 11100 block of Farm Road, Great Falls, sometime between 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
