July 20, 2021 – The Lynchburg Police Department (LPD) is investigating a series of vehicle larcenies that took place this week.
On July 19, 2021, the LPD received three reports of larcenies from vehicles on Old Forest and Carrington Roads. Items were stolen from two separate vehicles in the 3400-block of Old Forest Road and a catalytic converter was stolen from a vehicle in the 2100-block of Carrington Road.
The LPD wants to remind all our residents and visitors to never leave valuables — including purses, wallets, firearms, phones, etc. — in cars, even if the vehicle is locked.
Anyone who may have captured video of these incidents on a security or doorbell camera is asked to contact the Lynchburg Police Department at (434) 455-6065 or share the footage on the Neighbors portal. Residents with video footage or information can also share this anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
