Robbers have nicotine habit

A local business was broken into, and the Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs your help to solve the case.

At approximately 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 14, a large rock was thrown at the glass entrance to Tienda Joana in Meadowbrook Plaza. Two subjects wearing dark clothing entered the store and grabbed numerous cartons of cigarettes and thin cigars from inside. Unfortunately, they also stole a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun.

Surveillance cameras were in place and recorded the incident as it happened. Images from the video can be seen on the Crime of the Week page at
