STOLEN AUTO W/APPREHENSION: 11750 Fair Oaks Mall Shopping Center. 8/24/16, 2:44 p.m. A 20-year-old female drove her 2015 Volkswagen Beetle to Fair Oaks Mall and inadvertently left the car keys in a store. A 19-year-old female and her 12-year-old female cousin found the keys and located the car in the parking lot using the car’s electronic key fob. The suspects drove the VW to Washington, D.C. and picked up the 19-year-old’s boyfriend and then drove to an area off of Sunrise Valley Drive in Reston. At some point, the VW’s owner realized that her vehicle was missing and reported it to police. An alert Auto Theft detective from the Major Crimes Division utilized the VW’s built-in GPS system to track the vehicle and directed patrol officers to it. The occupants were safely taken into custody. The driver, 19-year-old Paris Blackshear of Reston was charged with grand larceny, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and having no operator’s license. The 12-year-old was released to her parents.
