Suspect Sought in West Cary Street Grand Larceny

March 16, 2017
Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the two men who are suspects in a theft from a building and credit card fraud that occurred in January on West Cary Street.

At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, police were called to the 3100 block of West Cary Street for a report of a theft from a building. Officers were told two males entered a fitness studio requesting to take photos of the facility. They entered an adjoining room where there were several cubbies with contents from a class that was in session at the time.
After the class ended, the victim, a participant of the class, grabbed her purse from one of the cubbies and exited the facility. She later realized her wallet was missing where soon afterward, she received an alert stating that her cards had been used at a nearby CVS Pharmacy.

Detectives obtained surveillance footage of two men using the stolen cards at the CVS located in the 3500 block of West Broad Street.
The suspects are described as:

  • Suspect 1: A black male with a dark complexion, average build, short dark hair and a dark goatee. At the time he was wearing a dark jacket with a gray shirt, dark pants, dark shoes, and a gold chain
  • Suspect 2: A black male with a medium complexion, average build, dark hair and dark mustache. At the time he was wearing metallic glasses, a mid-tone (possibly olive) jacket, gray polo shirt, dark pants, and dark shoes
