“I’d like to thank the public for sharing the images and also for their patience as we investigated these thefts over the past months,” said First Precinct Detective Sergeant C. Miller.

Richmond Police urges people to consider putting up cameras and continuing to call 911 if they see any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.
