Gift card thieves sought

Published 10:19 pm Saturday, June 4, 2011

Suffolk police still are investigating a residential burglary that occurred in March and are seeking help from the public in identifying suspects caught using cards taken during the burglary.

Police are asking for help identifying the subjects in a surveillance video taken at a Lowe’s store in Portsmouth.

Despite extensive media coverage, neither subject has been identified. Police have re-released a surveillance camera photo in hopes someone will recognize the suspects.

In March, a home in the 1800 block of Cotton Farm Lane was burglarized. The thieves took several Lowe’s gift cards during the crime.

Two of the cards have since been used for three transactions at stores in Portsmouth and Chesapeake between March 17 and March 26.

The two suspects appear to be the same in all of the photos. Both of the suspects are white males.

Anyone who can identify the suspects is asked to call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. Callers to Crime Line never have to give their names or appear in court, and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
