VIRGINIA BEACH — Southside Daily has partnered with the city’s police department and the Virginia Beach Crime Solvers to raise awareness about persons of interest in the city.
Crime Solvers is a nonprofit organization that accepts completely anonymous tips from residents about criminal activity. Information from tipsters is shared with police, but remains completely anonymous — no identifying information of sources is ever disclosed and the anonymity of tipsters is protected by state law.
Here’s this week’s list:
On April 30, police said this man and woman entered the Target store at Town Center and returned two external hard drives that had been bought on April 25. Loss Prevention opened the two hard drives and found the internal parts were missing and replaced with clay for weight. This same couple has done this at four other Target stores, police said.
On April 16 and 18, police said the woman pictured above entered the Walmart on Kempsville Road and used counterfeit money to buy two prepaid debit cards valued at $1,600. The woman left in the passenger seat of a black car, police said.

The suspect is described as being 35-40 years old, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, and between 200 and 220 pounds.
On May 16, 2018, the two women pictured attempted to steal approximately $400 worth of clothing from Target at Town Center. They were confronted by Loss Prevention and fled in a black Infiniti G35, police said.
Police said the man pictured above defrauded an 81-year-old man out of a large amount of money. It happened around 3 p.m. on May 21. The suspect approached him the victim in the Sam’s Club parking lot on Virginia Beach Boulevard. There was a female with the male suspect who helped “orchestrate the fraud.” The male suspect spoke with a Caribbean accent, police said.
