Stolen Auto Recovered

                At approximately 5:15 a.m. on Thursday, February 17 officers were called to the 6100 block of Hibbling Avenue for a stolen vehicle. The driver started his 2001 Ford pickup truck, a company vehicle, and left it running and unlocked while he returned into the house to get his coffee. Allegedly, two men entered the vehicle and drove away.

                The driver was able to contact the company manager. The manager used the in-vehicle global positioning system to track the vehicle’s direction of travel. Officers were directed to the vehicle’s location in the 6300 block of Gravel Avenue and found the suspects in the truck.

                Bernardo Lopez, 20, of 6001 Frontier Drive, and Jonathan A. Aravelo, 20, of 6445 Gildar Street, were found in the vehicle. They were arrested and transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. They were each charged with grand larceny.

                Police urge all residents to keep your vehicles locked and never leave a running vehicle unattended. It is against the law to leave the vehicle running and unattended.
