Crooks are targeting construction sites

Items have been stolen from a construction site at a Chesterfield County school on several occasions, and the Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs your help to solve the cases.

Two larcenies and one commercial burglary were recently reported at the construction site at Midlothian High School, 401 Charter Colony Pkwy. The first incident occurred on Friday, April 19, and involved the theft of copper. In the second incident, on Friday, May 3, a white crew-cab pickup truck with chrome, tubular running boards towed away a Miller Bobcat welding machine and numerous tools. The third incident occurred on Monday, May 13, and involved the theft of copper from the site. In this third case, the suspect was driving a dark-colored pickup truck. Combined, the three incidents have been very costly, and investigators need your help to catch the suspects involved.
