Suspect sought in gold fraud
The Fredericksburg Police Department is seeking help in identifying this man:
DND Jewelers, 1988 Plank Rd, 2/28 3:20 pm. The business owner reported that a male subject brought a quantity of gold jewelry and coins into the store to be exchanged for cash. The propietor agreed to purchase the gold and the two traveled together to the bank so the business owner could withdraw cash and complete the transaction. The male subject left immediately after receiving the cash and the business owner returned to the store, where he then realized that the gold he had just purchased had been swapped out with similar items that were gold plated. The suspect was a black male in his late 30’s, approximately 5’11 and 220 pounds, with some facial hair. The suspect’s photo is below. The investigation is ongoing.
If anyone has information on the identity or whereabouts of this individual, contact Detective Wayne Hunnicutt at 540-654-5753.
