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.

Infighting over how to raise more money for Metro as part of a broader package of reforms threatens to derail key pieces of attempts to reach a regional agreement that could be presented to the General Assemblies in Richmond, Virginia and Annapolis, Maryland. 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.
