Stolen purse leads to debit card fraud

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs your help to identify a woman involved in a debit card fraud.

On Feb. 14, the victim was dining at the Uno’s restaurant in Prince George and left her purse in her car.  While she was in the restaurant, someone stole her purse.  At approximately 8:17 p.m., someone used her card to withdraw cash from the ATM at Virginia Credit Union on Temple Lake Drive in Colonial Heights.

Video surveillance attached to the ATM recorded images of a female suspect using the card.  She is a black female, and she wore a heavy coat with a fur-lined hood and eyeglasses.

To see pictures of the suspect, simply visit and click on the “Crime of the Week” link on the left side of the page.
