Week in Herndon

Week in Herndon

Newcomers Guide Omission

<bt>The following information was inadvertently omitted from the annual Newcomers and Community Guide, published in the July 28-Aug. 3, 2004 edition of the Herndon Connection.

Herndon Optimist Youth Softball (HOYS) is a girls fast-pitch softball league serving players ages 6-18 in the greater Herndon area. Separate spring and fall seasons are run with the objective of serving all the girls of the community regardless of their skill level.

Registration for the fall season is open through Aug. 16. More information can be found on the HOYS Web site, www.eteamz.com/herndonsoftball or by e-mailing herndon_optimist_softball@hotmail.com.

<sh>Sunrise 5K Correction

<bt> In last week's Connection, July 28-Aug. 3, 2004, the headline on the Sunrise 5K story incorrectly identified the beneficiary of the event. The race was held to raise money for the Herndon Police Citizen's Support Team, a volunteer squad, not the police department.

<sh>Teens Arrested

<bt>The Herndon Police arrested three juveniles July 28 after responding to a report of auto tampering at 12:24 a.m. in the area of Park Avenue and Ferndale Avenue.

According to police, an investigation revealed two 16-year-old males and a 17-year-old male, all from Herndon, had allegedly entered parked vehicles and taken stereo equipment and various other items. They were also found in possession of a vehicle that had been stolen from Herndon on July 26.

All three juveniles were transported to the Fairfax County Juvenile Detention Center and were charged with three counts of grand larceny from auto, auto larceny, possession of burglarious tools, and three counts of auto tampering. A 2001 Honda valued at $12,000 was recovered along with more than $1,000 in stolen equipment from the three other vehicles.

<sh>Sterling Man Injured in Accident

<bt>At 1:54 a.m. on July 30, the Herndon Police responded to a single-vehicle accident on Herndon Parkway near the intersection of Crestview Drive. The driver, a 32-year-old male of Sterling, was critically injured and was flown to an area hospital. It appears that alcohol and speed were factors in the accident. Herndon Parkway was closed in both directions during the investigation until 7:40 a.m. The Accident Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating the accident. Anyone who witnessed this accident, or who may have additional information is asked to contact Private C. J. Pond at 703-435-6873.
