Waynesboro Police seek help in ID’g Bank of America theft suspect

BOA - Suspect 3The Waynesboro Police Department is requesting assistance from the public to help identify a woman who stole over $500 in cash from a Nelson County man earlier in the month.

On April 1 at approximately 3:00 PM, the 70 year old victim went to the former Bank of America (now First Bank), 1415 West Main Street, to make a deposit of cash and coins.  After realizing he had left part of his deposit in his vehicle, the victim left a bank envelope with the cash at the teller counter and went to his car.  When he returned to the teller counter, he noticed the envelope of cash was gone.

After viewing the video surveillance provided by the bank, the officer observed the woman featured in the provided still images pick up the envelope, hold it for a brief period of time, then put it in her wallet.  She was in the same line as the victim and would have been aware that he was the owner of the money.  She then concludes her business and leaves.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is asked to call Officer Travis Kimmell at the Waynesboro Police Department at (540) 942-6675 or Central Shenandoah Crime Stoppers at 1(800)322-2017.  Information given to Crime Stoppers may be given anonymously.  Callers with information that lead to an arrest in this case are eligible for a cash reward.
