Police in Prince William County investigate at least 12 burglaries in the Lake Ridge area since mid-December.
A recent string of burglaries in a Prince William County, Va., neighborhood has the community on alert.
“They tried to break [the glass] and they noticed I have a dead bolt [on my door] with a key and I always pull my key out at night just in case,” said Lake Ridge resident Mario Solis. “So he gave up. He knows he can’t get in anyway and went next door.”
Solis considers himself the lucky one, but Monday afternoon, two of his neighbors on Oakwood Drive were not as fortunate. In fact, since Dec. 16, Prince William County police believe one or two men robbed at least 12 homes in Lake Ridge. All within a two-mile radius with a total loss of more than $60,000in valuables.
That would be helpful. Because the suspects strike when no one is home, there isn't a good description of them. They are believed to be two men in their 20s driving an old, boxy, tan car.
