County employee charged with larceny

A senior employee with the Fairfax County Department of Code Compliance (DCC) was arrested by detectives from the Police Department’s Major Crimes Division for larceny March 22.

Rakesh K. Kapoor, 54, of Manassas, was charged with obtaining money by false pretenses, a felony, the police blotter reports. 

He was transported to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center where a warrant was served.

According to FCPD spokesperson Roger Henriquez, Kapoor was accepting cash from customers paying fees to the DCC and keeping the money. The DCC does not accept cash payments. Henriquez declined to say how much money was involved or how long this had been going on. 

UPDATE: According to an FCPD update on March 23, county officials became aware of the incident when the DCC received a request for a receipt from a resident on March 1 for a cash payment he received during an interaction with a code compliance inspector just outside the DCC office but inside the Herrity Building at 12055 Government Center Parkway. The payment was for a code compliance violation which the resident was attempting to address by obtaining necessary permits.

DCC launched an investigation of the incident, determined a possible criminal violation had occurred, then contacted the police. Detectives from the Major Crimes Division determined that Kapoor, who was working the service counter, allegedly told a resident that he would expedite services in exchange for cash. Kapoor was arrested on March 22 by the Manassas Park Police Department and transported to Fairfax County, where an FCPD officer brought him to the Adult Detention Center. There appears to be no known relationship between the resident and Kapoor.

FCPD  urges anyone who had a similar experience at the DCC to call the police non-emergency number, 703-691-2131, or report it to  Crime Solvers, 866-411-TIPS(8477).


  1. We can only hope code compliance will improve.

  2. What an outstanding force of compliance monitors. This idiot was probably extorting illegals for kick backs. Very third world, thank you Fairfax Leadership for inviting in all the crap nobody wants.

  3. Hope they are also investigating "Danny", the favorite of Gross, who has never met a violation he didn't like or approve in Mason District.

  4. I wonder if he will get to meet up with that principal from Poe MS.

    1. That's a start. Now who is going to arrest the ring leaders?
