In addition to adding more entries to the recent string of vehicle tampering incidents, the Vienna Police Department spent the week preceding Memorial Day weekend responding to crime reports that ranged from alarming to simply odd.

According to the weekly highlights for May 20-26, a citizen told Vienna police around 10:20 a.m. on Thursday (May 26) that he had overheard “two subjects inside a public transportation vehicle” discussing a bomb left at the Navy Federal Credit Union (820 Follin Lane SE).

Police officers responded to bank and alerted its security team to the potential threat, but fortunately, it appears to have been unfounded.

“It was later determined that the facility was safe,” the VPD said in its report.

In an unrelated, lower-stakes incident, a resident contacted the police on May 23 after seeing “a man without clothes get inside a hot tub.”

The unwanted encounter occurred around 11 a.m. that day while the resident was walking his dog on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail past the 400 block of Fellini Court SE.

“Officers responded to the residence where the hot tub was located and spoke to the homeowner about the incident,” police said.

The VPD also responded to nine vehicular crashes and a report of a “peeping tom” in the Vienna Park apartments area:

Peeping Tom 22-004834
100 Block Patrick Street, SE
May 20 11:25 p.m.
A juvenile resident reported that a man was looking in her window while getting ready to undress. She alerted her family to the incident, and they went outside to look for the man. They located a person they believed was the man and detained him until officers arrived. The man advised officers that he was trying to go to his friend’s apartment and was not looking in windows. The residents were advised of the warrant procedure should they wish to pursue charges.
