Batteries stolen from buses

Car and truck batteries have been stolen from vehicles throughout Chesterfield County, and the Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program wants to help solve the cases.

Since Oct. 17, batteries were reported stolen from seven school buses parked in various locations throughout the county. Seven of the 11 stolen batteries were taken from buses parked at Manchester Middle School, 7401 Hull Street Rd. Other locations included the Big Lots at 10161 Hull Street Rd. and Central Baptist Church at 1510 Courthouse Rd. The buses are being entered during the day and evening hours, and batteries are being disconnected, not just ripped out.  

Detectives working the cases may have received a break when security cameras at Ron Ellis Frame and Front End captured images of two suspects stealing car batteries from six cars parked on their lot. The suspects appeared to be a white male and white female team. They were seen in a white pickup truck, possibly a Chevrolet S-10.
