VIDEO: Police seek person in connection with several car larcenies in JCC neighborhoods

James City County Police are looking to identify a person who took belongings from several locked cars in three county neighborhoods earlier this week.

Sometime Sunday night or early Monday morning, several items were stolen from unlocked cars in Michelle’s Point, Rolling Woods and White Hall, according to a James City County news release.

Footage captured by a home surveillance system shows a person carrying a bag, testing the driver’s side doors of a minivan and a car parked in a driveway. After finding the doors to be locked, the person continues walking.

“Residents are encouraged to protect their property by removing valuables from vehicles and always locking doors, keeping windows and doors locked at night and when not at home and keeping extra keys and garage door remotes in a secure location,” the release said.

Anyone able to identify the individual in the video or who knows anything about these incidents should contact Investigator Leslie Sten at 757-603-6044 or Leslie.Sten@jamescitycountyva.gov. Those with information can also contact the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

Callers to the Crime Line may remain anonymous, do not have to testify in court and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if the information leads to an arrest.
