    Loudoun County, Virginia- The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is reminding residents to lock their vehicles when unattended and to never leave expensive items inside.

    During the month of June, there were 105 reported cases of larcenies from vehicles throughout Loudoun County. Parts of Sterling, Aldie and Ashburn saw a large number of these cases. In many of the incidents items such as GPS units, MP3 players and wallets were left in plain view. In some cases the vehicles were left unlocked.

    “Larcenies from vehicles are often a crime of opportunity,” said Loudoun Sheriff Steve Simpson. “Locking your vehicle and removing or concealing high dollar items will greatly reduce your chances of becoming a victim,” Simpson added. Simpson reminded residents to park in well lit areas, activate your alarm system or use anti-theft devices, and immediately report any suspicious activity to the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021.

    Anyone with information about the perpetrators of these crimes is asked to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. If the caller wishes to remain anonymous they should call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919. If the information leads to an arrest and indictment the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1000.

    Re: LCSO Alerts Residents to Rash of Theft from Cars- Encourages Residents to Lock Ca

    Two nights ago we had several cars that were broken into in the Southern walk area. From the information I have most of these cars were left unlocked. PLEASE remember to lock your cars and remove anything valuable from them. I know for the most part this is a safe community, but take the time to make it even safer not only for yourself and your possessions but for others who live here as well.
    Remember to:
    Lock your cars and remove valuable possessions
    Lock the doors to your home including between the garage and house
    Turn on exterior lights and keep them in good working order
    Report ANYTHING suspicious to the LCSO

    Thank you for during your part to keep this community safe!!!
