According to police, the Family Dollar in the 2300 block of Kecoughtan Road was first broken into around 11:20 p.m. on January 6. The suspect broke into the store through the back door and took several items before leaving.
The suspect is described as a black male wearing a red beanie, blue mask, green puffer jacket, khaki blue pants and white Nike sneakers.
Seven days later, on January 13, a suspect entered the back door again late at night. They took tobacco products and electronic devices from the store before fleeing the scene.
Authorities were unable to identify the race or gender of the second suspect. They are described as wearing a light-colored hoodie, a dark-colored jacket over the sweater, a light-colored face covering, dark-colored gloves, light-colored pants, and white and black shoes.
The store was previously burglarized in April 2019 when two 16-year-old men entered the store, pulled out guns and demanded money. They were later arrested and charged.
Nearby, two men were shot and killed on Kecoughtan Road in the last two months of 2021. A man was shot and killed inside a home in early November and the other was shot further up the road in mid-December.
