A Maryland man arrested in Tysons last week may be behind multiple burglaries in the Tysons and Reston areas, police say.

Officers encountered the man on Oct. 13 inside a building in the 8200 block of Greensboro Drive in Tysons after they were called there for a commercial burglary around 6:30 p.m., the Fairfax County Police Department reported yesterday (Thursday).

“[The man] was found in possession of burglarious tools, including screwdrivers, and a collection of stolen property,” police said.

The FCPD didn’t detail what kind of property had been stolen or the business that was targeted. Located northeast of The Boro, the 8200 block of Greensboro Drive is filled with office buildings.

Detectives have found “physical and video evidence” connecting the man to “a series of burglaries spanning across the Reston and McLean” police districts, according to the FCPD.

“Detectives are reaching out to the community, urging residents to come forward if they can identify [the man] or recall seeing him inside any other businesses,” the police department said.

The FCPD advises anyone with information to contact its detectives with the McLean station at 703-893-0886 or the Reston station at 703-478-0904. The department also accepts anonymous tips through Crime Solvers, which can be reached by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS (866-411-8477) or online.

Court records indicate that the man is facing charges for the Oct. 13 incident as well as offenses on May 19 and Oct. 3. The charges include misdemeanor petit larcenies, along with possession of burglary tools and breaking and entering to commit burglary, which are felonies.

The man has been released from custody on a $1,000 bond, according to police. He’s scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Jan. 16, per Fairfax County General District Court records.
