Man facing petit larceny charges for stealing from ABC stores

As previously discussed, being accused of stealing is a serious accusation. Those facing such allegations might also endure criminal consequences, as these charges could result in a felony. Therefore, it is important to understand the situation, what evidence is used against a defendant, what penalties could result and what defense strategies are available to them.

According to recent reports, a Virginia man was arrested in Richmond for his alleged connection with a series of larcenies from the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control store in Shockoe Bottom. The 55-year-old man was arrested after authorities claimed that he stole liquor bottles from an ABC store on East Main Street on multiple occasions.

When authorities further investigated the matter, it was discovered that the accused also took additional items from another ABC store location. The suspect has been charged with two counts of petit larceny. In addition to this man facing larceny charges, authorities are also looking from another suspect that apparently stole items from the shelves of an ABC store. This female suspect was caught on camera on and is suspected of stealing from the store on three occasions. Investigation remains open on this suspect.

Facing larceny charges, whether grand or petit, could mean facing serious penalties. Because criminal consequences could impact the accused, as well as their personal and professional life, it is important to consider defense options. Was the footage authenticated? Was evidence collected properly? Was there a lawful arrest? Asking question could help open the door to a strong and aggressive defense approach.
