Hanover, VA – The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the pictured individuals.
On the evening of June 14, 2018, deputies responded to the 7200 block of Battle Hill Drive for a reported robbery. The two female suspects (photographs attached) entered the business and proceeded directly to the electronics section. Once there, the suspects selected merchandise, concealed it in an empty stroller and then proceeded to leave the business.
As the suspects were exiting the business, a loss prevention associate confronted the suspects about the concealed merchandise. Suspect 2 then sprayed the loss prevention associate in the face with what is believed to be mace and both fled from the store with the stolen merchandise.
Both suspects were seen fleeing the area in a black vehicle with no front license plate.
