RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) —  Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying an adult who is suspected of multiple larcenies that have occurred in the city since May.

At around 11:25 a.m. on Wednesday, June 21, police were called to the 1500 block of East Cary Street for a reported theft from a building.

The victim reported that at around 8:44 a.m., he briefly left his office desk and walked to another room inside the building. When he returned a minute later, he noticed an electronic device was missing from his desk.

The suspect is also wanted in connection to additional larcenies, including one in the 110 block of South 14th Street that occurred sometime between Friday, June 2 and Monday, June 5 when the suspect forced his way into a facility and took ‘several electronics,’ according to police.

The suspect is described as a 6-foot, 230-260 pound black male in his early-to-mid 40s with a clean shaven face and a stocky build.  At the time of the June 21 larceny, he was wearing a black shirt, tan cargo shorts, a black baseball cap and multicolored shoes.
