NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Newport News police are working to identify a man they say has stolen employee wallets from various offices in the city.

Police said the man, who is shown wearing three different outfits in surveillance images, has entered various office buildings, sometimes saying he’s part of the cleaning crew, and gained access to the janitor’s closets.

He then has used the master keys or other keys to get into different officers and take wallets from staff.

Those credit cards were then used to buy gift cards at nearby grocery stores.
