Suspect who tried to use stolen credit cards sought
Incident may be connected to string of larcenies from autos in western Henrico
Henrico Police are seeking a suspect who attempted to use stolen credit cards at a Henrico Wal-Mart Feb. 18. The credit cards were reported stolen during a larceny from an automobile in Henrico earlier – one of 27 reports of larcenies from autos in western Henrico south of Patterson Avenue since Feb. 12, according to police.
The suspect is described as a white male, possibly in his late 20s or early 30s, and was seen in surveillance video from the Wal-Mart wearing a Miami Dolphins hat, an oversized jacket, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.
Victims in the larcenies have reported various items stolen, including pocketbooks, wallets, credit cards and other personal items. In a majority of the cases, the cars were unlocked. In the few where the vehicle was locked, windows were smashed.
Anyone with information about the offenses or the suspect in the Wal-Mart incident should contact Henrico Police at (804) 501-5000 or Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000. Citizens can also text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
