Arlington County has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation. It appears this criminal was not smart enough to ask why. It is because the police in Arlington have a reputation for catching the bad guys, thus eliminating them from repeating their criminal endeavors. A big Sierra Hotel and thank you to ACPD.
