Police are investigating a grand larceny from a local glasses business in the city’s West End.
The incident took place at the Bauer’s Optical (4680 King Street) in Shoppes at Summit Centre, a shopping center in the northwest corner of Alexandria.
A witness told ALXnow that three men came in and broke through the glass display in the store, stealing glasses inside before fleeing.
The larceny follows a similar smash-and-grab in Arlington last week, but Alexandria Police public information officer Marcel Bassett said it was too early to say if there was a connection between the crimes.
Police said on social media there were no injuries reported at the time.
