ROCKINGHAM — The Rockingham Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects following two incidents that occurred at Wal-Mart in Rockingham over the last 30 days.
According to RPD’s Detective Timothy Paxton, one male and one female suspect are at large after allegedly stealing goods from Walmart’s location at 720 E. US Highway 74. Paxton noted that the incidents were unrelated, but that on August 24, 2017, a male suspect stole a flat screen television from the store.
On August 27, 2017, a female suspect stole $100 in cash from another shopper. Paxton informed the Richmond Observer that the individual who had the money taken had received it as “cash back” at a self-checkout counter, but subsequently forgot to take it. The female subject took the money from the cash dispenser.
While details of the incidents are limited, Detective Paxton is certain that the public can help identify the suspects. Anyone with information is encouraged to call RPD Officer Rodney Tucker at (910) 895-2468, or Richmond County Crime Stoppers at (910) 997-5454.
