Shenandoah County Authorities investigate larcenies

International Automotive Components Group

Shenandoah County Authorities continue to seek suspects in gaming machine larcenies from convenience stores in several jurisdictions.

Strasburg Police Chief Wayne Sager confirmed by email that the suspects most recently struck the 7-11 near Route 81 in Strasburg on Jan. 12.

There are at least three suspects involved who are described as Hispanic or dark sink males.

One of the suspect stands approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall last seen wearing white tennis shoes, grey jacket and pants, with a blue baseball type hat.

The second suspect stands approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with white tennis shoes, blue jeans, dark blue jacket and a blue hat.

A picture of the subjects from the most recent larceny is found here.

All suspects have been seen wearing medical COVID-19 protection type masks.

The suspects have been seen traveling in a dark colored van with silver roof racks.

These suspects do not interact with employees they tend to work their way directly to the machines.

The machines that have been compromised are owned by a company that has already alerted Law Enforcement agencies.

It is believed that the suspects are the same ones that burglarized machines at a 7-11 in Woodstock as well as two truck stops in Toms Brook.

Shenandoah County Authorities have been in contact with other agencies throughout the Interstate 81 Route 66 corridor.

Those agencies have also reported similar larcenies with similar suspects.

Additional pictures of the subjects are found here.

Anyone with any information on these incidents is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.
