ACPD investigating more than 2 dozen car break-ins

The Arlington County Police Department is investigating some two dozen car break-ins in the Williamsburg neighborhood of north Arlington, near East Falls Church.

The break-ins were reported earlier Tuesday.

“Approximately 25 vehicles were entered and items of value stolen,” ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage told ARLnow.com. “Officers remain on scene investigating and are canvassing the area to determine if there are any additional victims.”

“This series includes unlocked vehicles so we are reminding citizens to remove the opportunity for crime by locking their vehicle doors, keeping windows up and valuables out of sight,” Savage added. “Please report suspicious activity to the Emergency Communication Center at 703-558-2222.”
