On June 12, 2012, around 12:53 PM, officers were dispatched to the 6200 block of Jordan Ave. in regards to a suspicious persons detail. The witness called the Dispatch Center and stated the suspect was seen walking between houses, and carrying bags to a parked vehicle. The witness provided Dispatch with a description of the suspect and a partial license plate of the vehicle as it was leaving. Upon officers’ arrival, they discovered a home in the area had been burglarized.

On June 13, 2012, around 7:15AM, detectives conducted follow-up in regards to this case and located the vehicle parked in front of a house in the 3100 block of Lowell Ave. in Richmond.
