Recognize this woman stealing a phone?

From the folks at Union Market:

Someone swiped a customer’s phone off of one of our patio tables Friday evening. Passing along the video so folks can keep an eye out, as I’m sure we’re not her only stop!

This girl walks by my house often. Usually with others and wearing backpacks so I think it’s when they get out of school. Most likely attends a highschool nearby. Walks towards Oakwood area..

Crime of opportunity. We should be able to leave our stuff on a table for a couple of minutes without someone walking off with it. Those days are long gone ?

Anyone have the date and timestamp on this – we could check our camera for possible additional footage?

It was Friday around 4:30

Hunter Robertson Thanks. Nothing on our camera around that timeframe.

Doesn’t look like a woman. More like a teen. Was this phone left unattended? I got my entire back pack stolen at VCU from Cabell one year. Lost all my books, notes, everything. Hard lesson to learn.

I think that purple hair could be spotted from a helicopter..

Im sorry but who in their right mind just leaves their phone and belongings. In this neighborhood at that. Youre asking for it to be taken.

They just dont give a shit.

Folks, don’t leave stuff unattended. Don’t leave things visible in your cars or on your table while you take a whiz. There is no “safe” place to leave your valuables unattended.

Has this been reported to the police? I am so over this. No excuses! Thiefs belong in jail.

Please report this to the police. There need to be consequences for this bs.

Anthony Bryant

For taking a phone? Someone belongs in jail? How long should they serve?

Rachel Woolwine Davis

Thats up to a judge to decide.

Anthony Bryant

So there is no answer other than jail. Is that why youre saying?

Rachel Woolwine Davis

What do you propose? How do we stop this bold and completely confident stealing?

Rachel Woolwine Davis
Guest

Agree that jail is overkill for a first time offender if thats the case. Consequences are needed. Something needs to happen to break this trend of see it, want it, take it thats happening in our neighborhood.

Anthony Bryant

I dont think its bold. More so Ive got nothing to lose which is the deeper issue. She is a human and has a story. She could be our neighbor. Church Hill residents could do a far better job investing in their neighborhood non monetarily speaking. Its a strange time in Church Hill right now and The Us vs. Them mentality has got to stop.

Rachel Woolwine Davis

You think that is what motivated this behavior?

Jail is extreme for a first time young offender. I think there should be a fine with community service and some shaming like holding a sign on the corner detailing their crime. Granted its just a phone, but that is hell for the person who it was stolen from. If my phone was stolen, my life would be upside down. I wouldn’t have money to replace it anytime soon and would be a nervous wreck about personal information being breached.

@27 The latest chapter in her story is that she’s a thief. What’s the Us vs Them mentality here? The law-abiding citizens vs the law-breaking citizens?

Shame on us law-abiders, right? Let’s give each and every one of these law-breakers a 15 minute segment on NPR so we can hear their “story,” and legitimize their criminal activity.

Here’s the deal. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks should happen. VA has a fairly low bar for felony theft. So the presumable result is this 16-18 y/o is a felon with likely a suspended sentence. You’ve now got a young person with very dim prospects for employment, housing, or education. Don’t see much upside for us or them in this scenario. It continues to boggle my mind why someone would leave a several hundred dollar phone unattended. That phone gets stolen in that scenario ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, this situation isn’t a Church Hill issue, it’s a take better… Read more »

“Us versus them mentality?
As in, people who don’t steal versus people who do? I’ll gladly join the Us team.

Anthony B – I think I understand where you’re coming from, but she needs to face some sort of consequences for her actions. I would say the actual punishment is what matters – some community service, restitution or return of the stolen item, maybe a weekend in jail or being publicly shamed somehow as others have already suggested. Nothing too excessive. But she shouldn’t end up with a permanent record as a result. The actual punishment should be consequence enough. If poverty was a factor or if she has mental health issues or what have you, then yes, absolutely, she… Read more »

Anthony Bryant – hopefully her parents will invest in her monetarily so the community doesnt have to.

Wish the courts would impose accountability of the guilty, and the guardians, to community service of x hrs to a non-profit @ the choice of the victim. Then find out why.

What a brat. I hope someone puts her in jail for a bit so she at least learns that theft equals inconvenience. That phone is long gone though.

People who think like her are disgusting.

Just call the cops and be done with. Stop this public shaming.
