Chamber of Commerce, Police Department Ask for Help Identifying Shoplifting Suspect

Suspect may be responsible for series of thefts from King Street boutiques

The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce has sent a notice to members asking for their help in finding a shoplifter who may be responsible for a series of thefts along King Street.

The "Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is asking for our help," said the Chamber. "They are attempting to identify the person who may be responsible for committing a series of distraction-type larcenies at boutique businesses located along the King Street corridor."

The police say this person may be going into Old Town area shops and politely asking the shop employees to retrieve a store item in order to create the opportunity to steal a wallet or money from either the back room or front counter.

Police are asking if anyone sees the suspect in this poster, please call 911 immediately.

Other than the color of his shirt and the fact that he's wearing sunglasses I don't see how anyone could possibly ID this guy from this poster. I think that the police need to have more of a presence on King St. We walk up and down King almost every night and rarely see them. We would like to see some good old fashioned foot patrols.
