*Suspect sought in iPod theft at Winchester Target store

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- Authorities say the theft of several iPods from Target on Tuesday in the city appears similar to other incidents in Northern Virginia.

A suspect still at large took several iPods valued at about $4,300 from the Target store at 2340 Legge Blvd. shortly before 8 p.m., according to the Winchester Police Department.

Police on Thursday released still images of the man taken from video surveillance cameras inside the store.

The suspect is described as a white, 25 to 30 years old, 180 pounds, 6 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches tall, with brown hair and some facial hair, according to a press release from the police department. The suspect was last seen wearing a Washington Redskins sweatshirt, black shorts, a dark-colored hat with the letters "USA," and he was carrying a black backpack, the release states.

Employees told officers the suspect asked to look at the iPods. When an employee opened the locked case containing the iPods, the suspect shoved the worker out of the way, took the merchandise from the container and fled on foot, according to the release.

The suspect threatened the employee and mentioned a weapon, the release states. The suspect did not display, nor did any witness see a weapon, according to the release.

The employee did not report any injuries as a result of the incident, police said.
Authorities say in the release the theft appears similar to incidents which occurred at Target stores in Falls Church and Sterling on Dec. 31 and May 22, respectively.

Police ask anyone with information to call the criminal investigations division at 545-4704 or Crime Solvers at 665-TIPS.
