Three men charged in Fairfax car vandalisms

Three men face multiple felony and misdemeanor property destruction and larceny charges in connection with a string of car vandalism in Centreville, Va. last month, authorities said.

David L. Stribling, 24, and Glen D. Edwards Jr., 23, of Centreville and Tracy A. Carmichael, 21 of Manassas face a total of 19 charges related to the vandalism, according to a release from Fairfax County police.

Thieves smashed the windows of 44 cars in the Centreville area between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Jan. 10, according to the release. Items stolen included GPS devices, sunglasses and iPods.

The arrests were made after police followed up on information received from an anonymous tip on the Crime Solvers line. The three men were incarcerated in the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, according to the release.

“Many times these sorts of cases go unsolved, unfortunately. But thanks to the help from the public and media, our detectives received valuable information and were able to put pieces of information together linking these suspects to the crimes; they did an outstanding job,” Captain Ed O’Carroll, said in a statement.

The case remains under investigation and there may be additional arrests, according to the release.
