    I think it’s fine LCSO released a video of the car break-in. (Auto thefts & break-ins are on the rise nationally.) I would just caution that LCSO release videos in an evenhanded manner. A similar release should occur when a Caucasian is involved in such a crime. Happy Summer Solstice Loudoun!

      Are you implying that the LCSO is racist? What an ignorant comment to make. The LCSO released a video of a perpetrator that is breaking the law and damaging personal property. It doesn’t matter what color the person is. He/she needs to be identified, arrested, and face jail time. Though, your favorite DA will likely have this person released with no bond..just a slap on the risk. Nevermind that the owners of the property will now have to pay out of pocket our through their own insurance for the damage.

      “A similar release should occur when a Caucasian is involved in such a crime” What an ignorant comment. If someone is caught on camera doing something illegal, it doesn’t matter what color they are. Is it any wonder we have so many issues in this Country, comments like this just fan the flame.

      Happy Caught on Camera Day!!

    This is what you get when you elected a DA that likely won’t prosecute these type of crimes. Loudoun slowly becoming San Francisco, where car break ins are just an accepted way of life. Time for the Loudoun DA to resign, recalled, or booted out in the next election.

    I wish the citizens of Loudoun would stop leaving things in their cars forcing those poor unfortunate souls the risk of injury they face when breaking the car window. I hope the LCSO will pursue these car owners knowing that our prosecutor will pursue them she does to other criminals. I hope the victim get whatever medical help they need for they injuries suffered reaching into that broken window.

    Happy blame the innocent day Loudoun.

    It seems like all surveillance cameras from banks, parking lots and convience stores can only take blurred images.
