Fairfax County Crime Solvers is seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect(s) who broke out numerous windows of a mosque under construction. An employee of the construction company called police Jan. 30 after discovering the damage around 6:45 a.m. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community mosque, at 4555 Ahmadiyya Drive in Chantilly, had been secured by the construction company the day before, Jan. 29, around 4:30 p.m.
Detectives found several beer bottles underneath a construction tarp and determined that some of them were used to break out the windows, along with large concrete blocks and wooden planks. It does not appear the suspect(s) entered the building, itself. Damage is estimated to be $170,000 to $200,000.
Anyone with information about this felony destruction of property or the suspect(s) is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text “TIP187” plus a message to CRIMES(274637). A $100 to $1,000 cash reward will be paid for information leading to an arrest. As always, callers never have to give their names or appear in court.
