A victim on Princess Arch, in the Suffolk Meadows neighborhood off Nansemond Parkway, woke up earlier this week to find that the home had been burglarized overnight. Items including bank cards were taken from the residence.

This suspect is accused of burglarizing a North Suffolk home and using bank cards he found there at convenience stations in Hampton Roads.
