Beach Breach Weekly: Police suspect these crimes could be connected

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.

Anyone with information can call 888-LOCK-U-UP (888-562-5887).

Tipsters can also submit a tip through the P3Tips website or by downloading the P3 Tips app available in Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.

Police are looking for three men who they said were armed when they robbed a gas station in the 3000 block of Shore Drive on July 10. Police described the men as black (two) and one light-skinned male and said they could be the same people who robbed a pharmacy on July 8 (pictured below).

On July 8, the three men pictured above forced several employees and a customer into a back office at gunpoint before taking money from a pharmacy in the 6000 block of Indian River Road, police said. Police are unsure if this and the robbery at the gas station are related but are asking the public to take note of the suspects’ “unique clothes” to help identify the men.
