Larcenies from Autos
On February 7, 2019, officers of the Manassas City Police Department responded to the 8400 block of Signal Hill Rd, the 10200 block of Cedar Ridge Dr, and the 9100 block of Prince William St for reports of thefts from vehicles. Each incident is believed to have occurred during the evening or overnight hours.  Cash, electronics, and tools were reported stolen. The investigations are ongoing.

Crime Prevention Tip:  Larcenies from vehicles, theft of motor vehicle parts, and vandalisms to auto are the most commonly reported property offenses in the City of Manassas. Valuables left in plain sight inside a vehicle offer a tempting reward for criminals, especially if gaining access could be as simple as opening an unlocked door. To avoid becoming a victim of larceny, residents are strongly urged to consider the following tips:

1. Lock all vehicle doors and windows. (It doesn’t hurt to double-check. Many victims thought they had left their vehicles locked before the theft took place. “Before you sleep, make sure it beeped!”)
2. Park your vehicle in a well-lit and/or in a populous location
3. Remove or conceal all valuables before arriving at your destination. Never underestimate the value of something to someone else. Even spare change can entice a thief to break in and steal other items once inside.
4. Report all suspicious activity to police by calling 703-257-8000.
