 Week of February 27, 2017


I’m Central Precinct Property Crimes Detective Alex Clark.  Newport News Police need your help to solve a case of Larceny.   


January 20, 2017 at about 4:20 PM a man and woman entered a local department store in the 12000 block of Jefferson Ave. Inside they worked together to steal store merchandise.

We need your help to identify this man and woman and bring them to justice.





The couple went to the children’s section of the store, selected a box containing boots then went to clearance section of the store. Surveillance video shows the couple open the box, remove the contents and the female place the merchandise into her shoulder bag. The man then pushed the empty box under the clearance rack. Both then left the store.
