RICHMOND, Va. -- Police are asking for the public’s help to identify suspects wanted in connection to a burglary in the city’s East End last month.
The incident happened in the early morning hours of August 16 at a business in the 3000 block of Nine Mile Road.
Police said they were called to the location at approximately 3:22 p.m. for a commercial burglary. Police said they were told the actual incident occurred between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. that morning.
“When staff arrived at 6 a.m., the store’s security alarm was beeping. Upon further observation, it was found that the lock to a shed was broken,” said a Richmond police spokesperson. “Inside of the shed, it appears the suspect rummaged through the shed’s contents but nothing appeared to be taken.”
