LYNCHBURG (WSLS 10) - The Lynchburg Police Department is investigating after multiple reported larcenies at the same location.

Police say someone had stolen items from the Kroger store in the 7000 block of Timberlake Road multiple times, including twice in January (1/10 and 1/26) as well as this Monday.

Each time, loss prevention told officers a woman had entered the store and stole meat, including lobster tail, steak, and shrimp worth almost $450.

Police say the woman arrived at the Kroger in a small red, two-door pickup truck, with a metal tool box and left on foot.

The suspect is described as a black woman with long black hair, wearing glasses, a red jacket, light colored blue jeans and boots.

Police say she appears to be the same suspect from each of the three reported incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 434-455-6060 x 593 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-798-5900.
