VIRGINIA Seaside, Va. (WAVY) — Greenbrier wasn’t the only Hampton Roadways mall strike by jewelry robbers on Wednesday.
Virginia Beach police say a jewelry retail outlet inside of Lynnhaven Mall was targeted in a “smash and grab” larceny. Chesapeake police labeled their circumstance a “robbery,” but Virginia Seaside law enforcement later clarified they’re remaining labeled larcenies for the reason that staff weren’t threatened.
A spokesperson for VBPD did not share the title of the shop in a press release, but it occurred at REEDS Jewelers at 1:17 p.m., inside of several hours of the other theft.
The Greenbrier theft was at SK Diamonds about 5:42 p.m. No injuries have been reported.
Law enforcement have not confirmed the two robberies are similar, but pictures from the two scenes clearly show what look to be the identical sneakers 1 suspect. In both of those instances, two suspects smashed into screen instances, but didn’t show up to have weapons other than hammers they used to break the situations.
Anybody with information is requested to speak to the VBPD Detective Bureau at 757-385-4101. VBPD claims it’s performing with Chesapeake law enforcement.
