[ARCHIVED] News Release-Police Report May 22, 2020

 

PURCELLVILLE, Va. May 22, 2020



05/19/20           2:45 a.m.          700 Block of Wooden Bridge Drive                              Nuisance Behavior

 

A resident reported that at approximately 2:00 a.m. someone rang his doorbell and ran away.  The next morning officers canvassed the area and discovered video from a door bell camera at the house next to the complainant that captured what appeared to be a juvenile male approaching the door.   There were no other complaints of a similar nature received. 


05/19/20           7:05 p.m.         400 Block of E. Loudoun Valley Drive                         Welfare Check

 

The reporting party told police that he received a text message from his estranged wife that he thought indicated possible suicidal ideations. Officers responded to her residence and were met by a woman who was not suicidal but rather was annoyed that her estranged spouse called the police to check on her. Police have had previous encounters with both subjects.


05/19/20           10:24 p .m.       400 Block of E. Loudoun Drive                                    Harassment                                         

The complainant reported to police that she was being harassed by text message by a former friend who wanted the complainant to apologize for a negative post about the deceased daughter of a third party.  The complainant indicated that there was an implied threat by her former friend to post “incriminating texts” between the complainant and another party. Police reviewed the texts between the two parties and found them to be innocuous, with nothing rising to the level of criminal harassment.  

 

05/20/20           12:36 p.m.        200 Block of Upper Brook Terrace                              Destruction of Property

 

A resident reported that he parked his undamaged vehicle on 05/13/20 near his residence.  He returned to the vehicle on 05/20/20 and discovered a large scratch running the entire length of the driver’s side.  Several doorbell cameras were located and the investigation is on-going. 


05/20/20           11:43 a .m.       609 E. Main Street                                                       Disorderly Conduct

 

A resident of nearby Hamilton met with two subjects who reside in a pickup truck that was parked in the lot of 609 E. Main Street. Apparently, the Hamilton resident and one of the truck occupants have cell phones on an account owned by the other truck resident. It was the bill due date, but due to the recent economic downturn, neither could pay their fair share of the bill. Feeling magnanimous, the account owner decreed that his truck roommate did not have to pay, but the subject from Hamilton did.  Upset by what he perceived to be unfair treatment, the Hamilton resident aggressively approached the truck only to be intercepted by another party who also apparently lives in the aforementioned pick-up.  Words were exchanged and the party whose bill was waived, in a gesture designed to intimidate, stripped off his upper garments and flexed while spewing invective towards the aggrieved phone bill party.  No punches were thrown, chilled parties donned their clothing and order was eventually restored.  


Not surprisingly, shopping center management was not happy with this macho display of bravado and the subjects were advised to move their truck else ware.


05/21/20           9:33 a.m.          200 Block of Upper Brook Terrace                              Destruction of Property

 

After learning from a neighbor about his vehicle being keyed, the reporting party checked his vehicle, which he parked undamaged on 05/17/20 and discovered a large scratch along the entire passenger side of his vehicle.


Officers are reviewing video footage and the investigation is on-going.


05/21/20           3:00 p.m.         500 Block of Gentlewood Square

 

A resident pushing a stroller lost her keys somewhere between her home and the W and OD trail.  Citizens are reminded that if they find property they can call the non-emergency dispatch number at 703-777-1021 to report it. This will help the police reunite property with its owner. 


05/21/20           10:42 p.m.        551 E. A Street                                                            Trespassing

 

A Loudoun County Public School security officer was inside Blue Ridge Middle School when he heard an engine revving in the parking lot. Upon exiting the building the vehicle drove away. The security officer did notice a female standing at the rear of the building.  As he approached, she ran away.  Officers checked the area but could not locate her.   A check of the school grounds found nothing to be amiss.
