State Police seek public’s help in theft
Virginia State Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a Caroline County theft.
Trooper M.C. Hite responded to the northbound rest area on Interstate 95 in Caroline on May 15 to investigate a stolen wallet.
According to State Police spokesman Sgt. Thomas Molnar, a Maryland resident had stopped at the rest area earlier that day and after she got home realized she left her wallet there.
Inside the gray and white “Nightmare before Christmas” wallet were several credit cards, a driver’s license, a military identification card and the woman’s social security card, Molnar said.
When she got home, she immediately called state police and the credit card companies to report the stolen item, he said.
After working with the credit card companies and following up on leads, Molnar said Hite has identified a female suspect, who allegedly used the credit card at a store on Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield County.
The suspect is described as a white woman, approximately 5 foot 5 to 5 foot 8 inches tall and 200 pounds with brown hair. She may be driving a silver SUV, Molnar said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Virginia State Police Division I Dispatch Center at 804/553-3445 or Hite at 804/633-6799 or Marshall.Hite@vsp.virginia.gov.
All information is confidential, Molnar said.
