RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) -VCU Police are looking for a person in connection to the report of a stolen firearm from a car parked on West Grace Street.

At 1:01 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 11, the victim reported that his vehicle had been broken into in an alley behind 909 West Grace Street in a privately-owned parking lot.

The vehicle had been parked in the lot since approximately 2 a.m. that same morning; when the victim returned 20-30 minutes later, a window was down on a door, and the vehicle was unlocked. The victim then noticed a firearm was missing from the car.

Police have reviewed VCU’s security camera system and are working to identify and locate one suspect and one person of interest who was walking with the suspect that night.
