From Loudoun Sheriff:

Loudoun County, VA: The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is again reminding residents to never leave their cars unlocked while unattended after a series of larcenies from vehicles in the Ashburn area. 
 
 During the overnight hours of Monday, April 18, 2011 and Tuesday, April 19, 2011 unknown subject(s) entered five vehicles in the Loudoun Valley Estates community. In four of the cases a window was damaged to gain entry. Items removed included credit cards, cash and GPS units. The thefts occurred in the 43500 block of Lucketts Bridge Circle, the 22600 block of Leithtown Mill Court, the 43400 block of Wheatlands Chase Court and the 22700 block of Oatlands Grove Place, and the 22600 block of Taylorstown Hunt Court. An open garage was entered on Oatlands Grove Place and two children’s bicycles were taken. The bicycles were later found abandoned on Howardsville Woods Court.    
 
“Theft from a vehicle is often a crime of opportunity,” said Loudoun Sheriff Steve Simpson. “You will greatly reduce your chances of becoming a victim by removing or concealing high dollar items and locking your vehicle,” Simpson added. Residents are reminded to park in well lit areas or in a garage, to activate alarm systems or use anti-theft devices and immediately report any suspicious activity to the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office. 
 
Anyone who has information regarding these thefts is asked to contact Investigator M. Hall of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Unit at 703-777-0475. If the caller wishes to remain anonymous they are asked to contact Loudoun County 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.
