PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - Police are trying to identify burglary suspects through the use of pawn shop surveillance photos.
According to a release from Janice Clark with the Portsmouth Police Department, there has been an increase in burglaries, and the items are sometimes showing up in second-hand shops.
Police are looking to identify four males who they believe are suspects in two burglaries, and may be connected to several other home break-ins. Police released surveillance photos of the suspects from Cash Money Pawn, located in the 5000 block of Portsmouth Blvd. Clark said the males in the photographs were trying to pawn items taken in two burglaries.
The burglaries both happened in June. On June 17, police said a suspect or suspects ransacked a home on Greenway Court. The man who lives there reported several jewelry pieces were taken, including a Movado watch. According to Clark, the watch had a serial number, and it was one of the items pawned by the four suspects at Cash Money Pawn on June 19.
Just a couple days after that burglary, a woman found her home on Race Street ransacked. Police said the suspect or suspects came in through the dog door and took several of her items.
Police are asking for help identifying the men in the surveillance photos. If you have any information, call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
