Police Log: Man Allegedly Steals Ex-Girlfriend's Car from Giant Parking Lot

The following arrest information was supplied by the Vienna Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A woman reported her ex-boyfriend stole her car in the Giant Food Shopping Center parking lot July 8.

While sitting in her car in the parking lot at 3:45 p.m. July 8, she and her ex-boyfriend began to argue, the report said. In the middle of the argument, the man took the keys and drove her car away, she said. Police are investigating the case.


A woman reported at 3:51 p.m. July 1 that while she traveled overseas she had a woman — whom she did not know before taking the trip — take care of her dog and housesit. When she returned, she asked the sitter to leave but she refused, saying she had nowhere else to go.
