FCPDForensics: Buccal Swab

Buccal swabs are a regular occurrence at crime scenes, used to collect DNA from the cells on the inside of someone's cheek. Detectives use a sterile cotton swab with a protective plastic cap to ensure the evidence doesn’t get contaminated. Watch as 2nd Lt. Rich Buisch demonstrates the process! #FCPDForensics

#MeetFCPD: For this week’s feature, we’d like to share the story of Sergeant Ryan Lindenbaum. He was an officer who served Fairfax County from 2006 through 2015 until he lost his life to a brain tumor that he had been fighting for 15 months. The loss was a great one, leaving his family, friends and colleagues devastated. Known by everyone he knew as a fun-loving teddy bear with a warm personality and infectious smile, he was an outstanding person and officer. 👮🏻 However even in his absence, Sgt. Lindenbaum’s friends and family continue to honor his legacy, positively impacting the law enforcement community.

Three of his high school friends (Alex Fetterman, Andrew Donahoe and Brian Beruete) established a foundation in his name in 2016, The Hercules Foundation, in honor of the nickname his fellow police officers affectionately called him. The foundation raises money for college scholarships for law enforcement families as well as other times of need. This weekend, the foundation hosted its 4th annual 314546 Invitational Golf Tournament, inspired by Sgt. Lindenbaum’s badge number and his love of the game. 🏌🏻‍️⛳ The first three tournaments raised more than $30,000 to support the law enforcement community!

Sgt. Lindenbaum made a strong impact during his nine years with the department, receiving our Meritorious Service Award in 2009. He was also named the Fairfax County Police Association Officer of the Year in 2010. He was proudly working toward his bachelor’s degree in Global Affairs at George Mason University at the time of his death. The scholarships awarded by The Hercules Foundation honor Sgt. Lindenbaum’s dedication to excellence and education, and his friends are happy to keep his legacy alive through helping others achieve their goals!

If you’re interested in learning more about The Hercules Foundation or donating, please visit www.herculesfoundation.com/donate.

Have you seen this missing endangered juvenile?
.
14-year-old Ahmed Moussa Abdou was last seen around 5:30 this morning near the 3300 block of Rose Lane in Annandale. Ahmed is 5’5", 120 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a dark colored T-shirt, black and red pajama pants, and may have a backpack with him. He is endangered due to mental and/or physical health issues. Please call 703-691-2131 with information and please "share" to help us spread the word and bring him home safely.

For #ShelterSaturday, meet Vance! Proof that age is but a number, this (approx.) 12-year-old pup is looking for the perfect family to spend his golden years with! 🐶

Vance was found running around as a stray, and was then taken to the shelter’s vet because he was having a hard time breathing. Initially, our shelter friends weren’t sure if he would make it, but he showed incredible perseverance and pushed through his tough days! ❤️

While he’s quite old and has some health concerns, Vance is endlessly curious and excited to meet new people and do fun things. He especially has a soft spot for treats (don’t we all?), but he’s a bit overweight, so Vance's future family should definitely be ready to help him stay in shape. That being said, this little guy has come a very, very long way since arriving at the shelter, and we’re so proud of his progress!

Vance would do well in a household with another older dog, and is definitely ready to find the home of his dreams. Think that home might be yours? Stop by the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (4500 West Ox Rd) to meet him!

Master Police Officer Michael “Gabby” Garbarino served alongside us for 23 years. Thirteen years ago today, he died as a result of a devastating shooting that occurred nine days earlier in the parking lot of the Sully District Station. We memorialize and honor our fallen brother, whose selflessness and courage will be remembered always.

The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are as bold as a lion." - Proverbs 28:1

05/16/2019

Detectives from our Major Crimes Bureau are investigating the death of a man that occurred on May 4 in the 2200 block of Huntington Avenue. Officers were initially called to the area around 9:15 p.m. for a man reported to be lying outside of a restaurant and not breathing. Officers and rescue personnel arrived and administered CPR. The man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was preliminarily identified as 26-year-old Crystian Leonel Avalos Lemus with no fixed address.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has yet to determine Lemus’s cause and manner of death. It appears the man suffered a medical emergency and detectives do not suspect foul play.

Detectives are asking for help in identifying any friends or family members of Lemus to confirm his identity and to assist with his decedent affairs. Anyone with information is asked to contact our Major Crimes Bureau at 703-246-7800.

For ongoing updates, please read our blog and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @FairfaxCountyPD.

05/16/2019

When a bank security employee noticed 18 suspicious activity reports going through the bank he worked for, he called Detective Vince Porter, one of the go-to financial exploitation experts out of our Major Crimes Bureau, for help. Det. Porter started investigating, and immediately recognized an access point that a criminal was using to export scammed money out of the US to Ghana! 💳

Continuing his investigation, Det. Porter found a 72-year-old victim in Kentucky who had been scammed out of $43,000. Using information from evidence and the victim to confirm the suspect’s location and identity, Det. Porter was then able to get search warrants and arrest the suspect - who confessed to sending over $500,000 worth of illegally-obtained money outside the country in just the past year!

For his work on this case and many others, Detective Porter has deservedly been given our Major Crime Bureau’s Detective of the Month Award. His contributions with Major Crimes since 2013 have helped many victims gain back what they’d lost, and he has likely saved countless other victims from being scammed out of their well-earned money in the same way.

With an undying commitment to advancing his knowledge of complex investigations and holding offenders accountable over his 22 total years with us, we are endlessly grateful for Detective Porter’s dedication and hard work! 👮

The hard work of our Organized Crime and Narcotics (OCN) Division paid off when a search warrant resulted in charging three suspects with multiple crimes after a months-long investigation! 🔍

A West Springfield home was reported as a nuisance in the neighborhood, as it was being run as an illegal bar/restaurant with reported gambling and prostitution taking place, as well as drug distribution. With the assistance of SWAT, our OCN Division executed a search warrant, finding 5½ ounces of cocaine and $3,283 in cash. They also found that several young children were living in the home and were present during these illicit activities. Detectives worked with Child Protective Services to ensure their safety moving forward.

As a result of this investigation, two people were arrested with Possession with Intent to Distribute Schedule I/II Drugs (Cocaine): Maria Amanda Zavala-Amaya, 48, and Gilberth Gualberto Cruz, 44. A third person, Yuner Naun Sauceda Fuentes, 44, was charged with Possession of Schedule I/II Drugs (Cocaine).

We’re grateful to everyone involved who worked to ensure not only the well-being of the children in the home, but also the safety of neighbors and community members!

05/14/2019

We still remember the tragic day when we lost our beloved K9 Doby in the line of duty. 💙 At our Fallen Officers Memorial Service, we recently honored Doby and his sacrifice by adding his name to the K9 memorial in front of our Public Safety Headquarters, where members of the community are welcome to visit and pay their respects. 🌹

K9 Doby was responding to an armed robbery call with our Special Operations Division on February 22nd of this year when he unexpectedly collapsed. Despite heroic actions by his handler and veterinarians to render aid, he devastatingly passed away on the same day. Doby became a member of our department in March of 2018, and had just turned two years old at the time of his passing.

We will continue to honor and remember Doby for his sacrifice, and we are forever grateful for the work he did for our team and community.

Two men are facing charges after a February shooting that occurred at the Medieast Studio located in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County. Community members reported gunshots, shell casings were discovered in the street, and a car was seen leaving the scene.

The investigation by our Major Crimes Bureau detectives led to the arrest of James Mark Gibson, 18, and Cartier Da’Ton Wesley, 19, both charged with Maliciously Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling. Both are currently being held without bond. We are glad to be a part of making Fairfax County a safer place to live!

Every day, police officers risk their safety to protect others, and many tragically lose their lives. Detective Vicky Armel and MPO Michael Garbarino are two of our officers who died while protecting our community in 2006, and we were honored to gather at our Sully District Station to celebrate their memories while remembering their service and sacrifice to our county. 💙

May 11-18 is National Police Week, bringing together thousands of law enforcement professionals, loved ones, and community members to pay respects to those who have died in the line of duty. We're proud and privileged to be able to honor our fallen brothers and sisters throughout the week alongside our fellow agencies and our wonderful community.
