Burglar Arrested

            On Thursday, August 23 officers of the Franconia Station arrested Derrick L. Royster in the Lorton area of the Franconia District. Royster was discovered inside a home around 11:00 a.m. by the resident who walked in and disturbed Royster’s burglary attempt. 

            Royster fled from the house on foot, carrying some of the resident’s belongings, but was apprehended a short time later by patrol officers. The resident did an excellent job calling 911 quickly and giving a great description for the responding units.

            Detectives are looking into the possibility that Royster may be involved in additional crimes in the county. Investigation continues into the involvement of other suspects.

            If you would like more information about crime prevention or would like a free home security survey, please contact MPO Reid at James.Reid@fairfaxcounty.gov or call the Franconia Crime Prevention Office at 703-922-8263.

Call 703-691-2131 to report any suspicious activity or 911 in an emergency.
