The following are reports made to the Vienna Police Department during the week of Aug. 2 through Aug. 9. NOTE: Some cases may still be under investigation.

Suspicious Event

A Vienna resident reported that she received a telephone call from an individual stating the resident had an outstanding warrant for her arrest and that the police would be coming to her home to arrest her.

A Vienna police officer attempted to call the individual, but the number was no longer in service.

In response to this case, the Vienna Police Department issued a statement warning citizens of these types of scams:

"Recently there have been reports of callers claiming to be law enforcement officials. The callers claim that the resident is wanted and if payment is not received the police will respond to their home and arrest them. The payment is usually requested in the form of a prepaid debit card. This type of call is a scam. Never send a payment unless you have verified the validity of the caller." 

Grand Larceny

An employee of A.J.'s Sports Shop on Maple Ave. West reported that a customer in the store on Aug. 2 placed several items into a back pack then left with the items in an unknown direction.

On Aug. 8, another store employee reported there was a man waiting to enter the store. The employee suspected that this was the man who took items from the store on Aug. 2.

Vienna Police arrived at the store and eventually arrested Quinn Derek Mallonee for Grand Larceny. Mallonee was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where he was released on his signature.

No hearing has been scheduled for Mallonee as of Monday morning.

Alcohol Violation

On Aug. 4 an officer from the Vienna Police Department noticed two vehicles parked at South Side Park and three individuals sitting at a picnic table in the park after 11:30 p.m. The park closes at sundown.

The officer approached the individuals to inform them they were not permitted in the park after dark, and found that all three individuals were in possession of alcohol despite all being under 21 years of age.

The officer issues summonses to Sean McGuffin, 19, of Vienna and Diane Feldmaier, 18, of Fairfax, for Underage Possession of Alcohol. Both McGuffin and Feldmaier were released after signing their summonses.

The third individual, Saul Caceres, 18, of Fairfax was also found to be in possession of marijuana. He was arrested on charges of Underage Possession of Alcohol and Possession of Marijuana, and was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

Caceres was released on a $1,000 bond. 

Driving While Intoxicated

At a police-issued traffic stop, an officer detected one driver was showing signs of possible impairment. After failing to complete a series of field sobriety tests, the officer arrested Michael Craft Perdue, 41, of Reston for Driving While Intoxicated.

Perdue was transported to the Vienna Police Station to undergo breath analysis, and was later transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

He was held on a $3,000 bond.
