“This individual felt very comfortable just picking up someone else’s property in the middle of the night and taking it. Just one tip could lead us to a suspect(s) and could close out dozens of similar cases. Not just open cases in Wytheville but in Wythe County, and surrounding towns, counties, and states. Criminals like these travel at night looking for easy-to-grab items they can pawn off or sell on market place” stated the Wytheville Police Department’s Facebook post.
