Police seeking park vandals

Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects responsible for breaking into a vacant home on property owned by Fairfax County Park Authority. There have been five reported incidents at John C. and Margaret K. White Gardens, a 13-acre park in the Falls Church area of Fairfax County since last October. In each case, a window was broken to get inside the home. White Gardens, as it’s known in the community, is located in the 6700 block of Princess Anne Lane.

Anyone with information about the break-ins or any of the suspects is asked to call 703-691-2131. Tips can be submitted anonymously through Crime Solvers by visiting http://www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org, or calling 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). They can also be sent in via text by texting “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES (274637). Text STOP to 274637 to cancel, or HELP to 274637 for help. Message and data rates may apply. Anonymous tipsters are eligible for cash rewards of $100 to $1000 if their information leads to an arrest.
