Couple on months-long crime spree wanted by LPD
Their crime spree has gone on for four months, and Lexington Police are hoping for tips and leads and their identification as they attempt to shut the suspected criminals down.
According to LPD Lt. Carroll Bledsoe, Jr., an unidentified man and woman have been on the loose since at least August and involved in numerous crimes in and around Lexington.
The suspects have committed or attempted several “distraction-type thefts” at local businesses within the town, Bledsoe said. Further, the male suspect also is a person of interest in a strong-armed robbery and burglary.
The male suspect is described as being between 30-40 years of age with a stocky build, facial hair and unique bald patch on his right, front hairline.
The female is believed to also be between 30-40 years of age, with an average to larger build, hair at or below her shoulders, and usually well dressed. Vehicles involved in these incidents have been a black or dark blue Dodge Charger and a dark grey Nissan Altima, according to Bledsoe.
Anyone with information on the identity of these persons or crimes are urged to contact the Lexington Police Department at 803-359-6260, their local law enforcement agency, or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME SC.
