Help catch suspect who robbed Family Dollar

A robbery occurred at the Family Dollar, 15700 Jefferson Davis Highway, and the Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs the community’s help to solve the case.

At about 10 a.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 30, a short male entered the store and asked a clerk about the location of their wrapping paper. After assisting the man, the clerk went outside to smoke a cigarette. While outside, the same subject approached the clerk, followed by a taller male pointing a dark revolver. They ordered the clerk back into the store to open the safe.  Another clerk saw what was happening, and when she tried to intervene, she had the same gun pointed at her. Both suspects eventually left the store, got into a dark-colored car and headed south on Jefferson Davis Highway.

The first suspect was a dark-complexioned black male between 30 and 40 years old, approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall, with large eyes with a yellow tint to them. He wore a black knit hat and a gray hooded sweatshirt. The second suspect was a dark-complexioned black male between 40 and 50 years old, approximately 6 feet, 2 inches tall, with gray facial hair, and wearing a black jacket and hat. He walked with a cane in his right hand and had a pronounced limp. For images of the suspects, visit and select the “Crime of the Week” link on the left side of the page.
