  • Jury sentenced man to 132 years in prison for stealing tires new

    A jury sentenced a 38-year-old man to more than 130 years in prison for a series of tire and rim thefts in Loudoun County, Virginia. In 2016, multiple victims in Loudoun County reported finding their trucks and SUVs mounted on cinder blocks in their driveways with vehicles' tires and rims gone, according to a statement from the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

Fairfax County Executive Ed Long, who also plays a key role on the Council of Governments Technical Panel that recommended a region-wide sales tax to fund Metro capital projects, said a separate Loudoun County proposal to repurpose existing contributions would simply be a Band-Aid that could leave the system worse off a decade from now.
