Harrisonburg Police seek assistance ID’g fraud suspects

fraud suspectsThe Harrisonburg Police Department is seeking assistance from the public to identify three unknown subjects believed to have committed fraud on Aug. 10.

The victim reported that her wallet was lost while at a yard sale in the New Market area. Her card was then used at several stores in the Harrisonburg area.

Pictured are three subjects from surveillance footage using the victim’s cards. The younger female may be indentified by a unique tattoo on her left forearm. She is seen with another female, possibly in her 50s with short hair, and a third subject described as a tall black male in his 20s.

The subjects were found to be travelling in a dark navy-blue Chrysler minivan at the time of the offenses.

If you are able to identify any of the subjects pictured, HPD asks that you contact them by calling the Major Crimes Unit at (540) 437-2650. Callers may remain anonymous by contacting Crime Solvers at (540) 574-5050 or texting “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
