Several animal pelts stolen from Indian Village, Henricus Historical Park

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program has helped resolve some unusual cases during the course of its history, and this one, if solved, would certainly become one of them.

Some time between 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30, and 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 2, someone entered Henricus Historical Park while it was closed and stole items from an area known as the Indian Village. What made the theft so unusual was that among the items stolen were approximately 20 animal pelts. The cost to the park was substantial.

While detectives continue to review video footage and other clues, they are looking for the public’s help. For more information, you can visit the Crime of the Week page at
