Culpeper Police Seek to Identify Alleged Thief

July 30, 2013

Culpeper Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a man who allegedly stole money from a cash register in May.

Police are looking for a white male, who was wearing a camouflage baseball cap, dark blue hoodie, blue jeans and tan work boots. The man appears to have blonde hair.

Investigators say the man entered the Safeway grocery store in Southgate Shopping Center about 5 AM, Friday, May 24, and after pulling his hoodie over his ball cap headed toward a register. He allegedly attempted to open that register but was unsuccessful. He then headed to another register, which he may have opened and removed an undisclosed amount of cash.

Surveillance video at the front door provides the best glimpse of the man without the hood over his head.

Anyone with information as to the identity of the man may contact Detective Luke Altman at 540-829-5507 or anonymously contact Crime Solvers at 540-727-0300
