    There are crime reports, and then there are crime reports from Vienna, Va.

    Few municipalities release the kind of clearinghouse of recent criminal activity that the Vienna Police Department does. The town puts out a "Vienna Police Highlights" report every Friday that's a rundown of "various incidents of general interest."

    We'll say.

    We'll be sharing the highlights (and lowlights) of the report each week.  Here's a sampling from this week's report:
