Police Notes for Buckingham

To deter car theft, police have planned a FREE vehicle etching program for Nov. 3, at the Arlington Assembly of God, 4501 N. Pershing Drive (just west of The Chatham condominium building). Trained engravers will etch your vehicle’s Identification Number (VIN) into the windows of the car, or the windows or fairing of a motorcycle. According to the press release, this deters the thief, and makes it less likely that the car’s windows will be used at a “chop-shop.” Police also say a vehicle with the etching may be eligible for lower insurance rates.

Oct. 19: Robbery, 4300 block of N. 4th St. Between 10:40 p.m. and 10:48 p.m., a 26-year-old man was assaulted by a suspect known to him. The suspect struck the victim with a glass bottle and took his bicycle.

Oct. 16: Felony Hit and Run, N. Glebe Rd at Arlington Boulevard. Around 7:18 p.m., a Toyota van and a Nissan coupe were stopped in the left lane of northbound Glebe Road over Arlington Boulevard, waiting to turn left onto Arlington Boulevard, westbound. A Honda sedan was traveling in the left lane behind the Toyota and Nissan. The Honda failed to stop in time and struck the Toyota, pushing it into the Nissan. No injuries were reported but there was significant damage to the vehicles. The driver of the suspect Honda fled the scene on foot. The investigation is ongoing.

Once again, it seems the corner of Arlington Blvd and George Mason is at the center of the triangle of trouble.
