WASHINGTON – Vandals destroyed the windows of more than 60 vehicles over the past two nights in Fairfax County, police say.

Fairfax County police are asking for the public’s help to solve the cases.

They say the vandal or vandals used a BB gun early Monday morning and early Tuesday morning, targeting cars in the Centreville area.

In the Sully District, reports of broken windows came in from Little Run, Rocky Run, Singleton’s Grove, Old Centreville Crossing and the Green Trails communities.

In the Fair Oaks area, officers responded to cases in the Penderbrook community.

Lucy Caldwell, police spokeswoman, says the incidents occurred on isolated roads, often behind townhouse communities when not a lot of people were around.

The vandals targeted cars on Little Rocky Run Circle, Flamborough Road and Green Trails Boulevard, Caldwell says.

The crimes started around 1 a.m. each night.

Anybody who saw or heard anything unusual in the affected communities is asked to call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477. People can text “TIP187” plus a message to CRIMES/274637 or call police directly at 703-691-2131. Tips also can be emailed through the Crime Solvers website.
