4 suspects arrested in connection to at least 15 VA ABC store robberies

Fairfax County investigators said a months-long crime spree led to more than $72,000 worth of liquor being stolen from Virginia ABC stores.

Altogether, there were 15 thefts throughout the county, according to police. They added that they all occurred between March and July.

"They go in, they head to the stock room, they grab a shopping cart, and they just take a bunch of cases of liquor," explained Fairfax County Police Capt. Elizabeth Melendez, who added that the thieves then typically flee the scene in a stolen car.
