FBI leads joint investigation of CVS robbery spree in Richmond, VA
The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Richmond field office has combined efforts with local law enforcement agencies in four Virginia counties and three additional cities to identify and locate a suspect responsible for multiple robberies. Federal investigators believe robberies in Henrico, Hanover, Arlington and Prince William counties, as well as in Fredericksburg, Williamsburg and Hampton, were all the work of the same suspect. He is wanted in connection to robberies from various CVS stores around Virginia on July 15, July 26, August 13, September 16, October 10 and October 26.
