    UPDATE: Leesburg Police investigating rash of attempted burglaries in Prospect Hills subdivision

    The Leesburg Police Department are working to solve a rash of attempted burglaries reported early this morning in the southwest portion of the town.

    Currently, according to Lt. Jeff Dube, there have been six homes that were broken into during the overnight hours in the Prospect Hill subdivision.

    Dube said someone tried to enter the homes by either cut porch screens or cutting locks. No items were taken from any of the homes, he said.

    The police department is asking anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious or may have any information regarding these events, to call the Leesburg Police Department at 703-771-4500.

    Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call the Leesburg Crime Line at 703-443-TIPS (8477) or use TIPSUBMIT from a smartphone or computer. Links to TIPSUBMIT can be found on the police department’s website at http://www.leesburgva.gov/police .

    It appears to be the area off of Dry Mill Road, SouthWest of LCHS.  I agree about the sparse details of many of these stories.  A contrast to the minutiae that leesburg today publishes.


    Too often, LTM crime stories appear to be ripped directly from police press releases. At least in this case, it appears that Crystal Ownens spoke with Lt. Dube to get a few more details. She is a good reporter, but like many reporters with local newspapers, sometimes appears to be spread too thin to flesh out stories that might deserve more attention. That’s a tough editorial choice. Do you cover more stories with less attention, or provide greater details with fewer stories?


    Having the LTM get into details is waaaay too much to ask.

    The shooting in Potomac Station a few months back.  Never any follow-up on what happened.


    why is there never an explanation of where these areas are located? Southwest is vague. I cannot be the only Leesburg resident that doesn’t know every single subdivision name.
