NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Newport News Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a person involved in multiple commercial burglaries on the Peninsula recently.
Police say the burglaries happened over the past “several weeks” at independently owned, non-chain restaurants. Eight have happened in Newport News and 15 in Hampton. Most occurred between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., police said.
In some incidents, police said the person smashed the front glass door, went inside, removed cash from the register drawer, then left the scene.
Police describe him as a slim-build Black male who wore a dark knit hat, surgical-style face mask, dark pants, gloves, and dark, shiny shoes or boots. In some incidents, the suspect wore a loose-fitting, dark-colored jacket and left the scene in a late model maroon two-door vehicle.
