For a Better Commute. For a Better Prince William County.


Sedan left on blocks at Horner Road commuter lot in Woodbridge

This car had wheels on it when the driver parked it in a Woodbridge commuter lot.

Commuter David Snead returned to the Horner Road commuter lot Friday evening to find silver sedan missing all four tires and rims. A cinderblock appeared to have been placed underneath the car for support while the thieves did their dirty work.

Snead parked his car nearby and said he didn’t know the owner of the car now missing its wheels and rims.

“I came back from work on the PRTC commuter bus about 5:40 p.m. Most of the cars were gone, and this car was near mine. I don’t know how long it was … there…too many cars in the morning to see it. A few people were dispersed across the lot, but none near the car. Police were not in the vicinity,” Snead told Potomac Local in an email. (more…)
