Alexandria Police are investigating smash-and-grab incidents at three ABC stores that occurred at night on August 25 and 26.
“We have had three instances of ABC stores burglarized,” APD spokesman Lt Courtney Ballantine told ALXnow. “All high end liquor. Fairfax (County) has had similar incidents.”
The following stores were broken into after hours.
- 668 N. St. Asaph Street in the Washington Square Building in Old Town North
- 3815 Mount Vernon Avenue in Arlandria
- 3678 King Street in the Bradlee Shopping Center
Ballantine said that there are multiple suspects and no descriptions are available.
As previously reported, there has been a 12% increase in the number of larcenies in the city this year. A surge in violent incidents in Old Town has also prompted APD to increase their presence on the street.
