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.
Authorities are asking anyone with information about any of these people to contact Virginia Beach Crime Solvers.
Tipsters could also be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000 if their information leads to an arrest.
Here’s this week’s list:
On Aug. 23, police said the man pictured above entered the TJ Maxx store on Virginia Beach Boulevard and then hid in a display. After the store closed, he emerged from the display, stole several items, and exited the store, police said.
On Sept. 9, the woman wearing the dark shirt in the picture above stole a pyramid-shaped green Jasper stone valued at $67 from the Beads and Rocks store near the Oceanfront, police said. The other two women pictured were there with the suspect.
On Aug. 31, police said the woman pictured above stole a bottle of Paul Masson brandy from the ABC store in the Salem Crossing Shopping Center in Virginia Beach. She placed the bottle in the red bag she was carrying, police said, walked out of the store, and left in a red car.
On July 27, the man pictured above stole several hundred dollars in groceries from the now-closed Farm Fresh store at the Chimney Hill Shopping Center, police said. He left the parking lot in a silver Ford pickup.
On Aug. 23, police said the man pictured above in a checkered shirt removed a wallet from an elderly woman’s purse while she was shopping at TJ Maxx on Virginia Beach Boulevard. The victim’s credit card was used a short time later at Best Buy and Target with the purchases totaling more than $4,000, police said. The woman in black was with the suspect.
