Series of Car Thefts
A series of car thefts and attempted car thefts have had car owners at South Union Street on edge. There were four break-ins at cars within the 300 block of South Union Street between Feb. 12 and March 17. In at least two of the break-ins, the ignition was damaged but the car was not successfully stolen, while two of the incidents are listed by the Alexandria police as “car thefts.” The two break-ins and one of the thefts happened on the night of March 9.
“Crime analysis would need to determine if it’s the same suspect,” said Crystal Nosal, public information officer for the Alexandria Police Department. “We can’t say for sure it’s the same suspect, I think you could reasonably assume that all the ones that occurred on the 9th of March are connected. Using common sense you can say it’s probably the same person.”
