Employee credit cards stolen from backrooms of businesses in Old Town

Alexandria Police are investigating the theft of credit cards and other items belonging to employees at a number of shops in Old Town.

Red Barn Mercantile (1117 King Street), the AR Workshop Alexandria (1212 King Street) and Ms. Moxie’s Moon Shop (102 N. Fayette Street) were hit with theft over the weekend.

Employees at Red Barn Mercantile reported that three men stole their credit and debit cars from the back room, and the suspects then went shopping at Pentagon City Mall. One would-be customer allegedly distracted the employees while two suspects stole their cards.

AR Workshop Alexandria said that on Saturday, July 9, at around 4:30 p.m. an employee’s keys and wallet were taken from a back room, and that the employees credit cards were then used at several CVS stores. Staff said that the suspects are allegedly two men in their 30s who are repeat offenders.

“My employee was with campers in the front room and didn’t realize until 4:30 or so that her keys and wallet were taken from the back room,” the owner of AR Workshop Alexandria wrote in an email. “Her CCs (credit cards) were used at several CVS’.  She called APD and filed a police report over the phone.”

Between July 5 to July 12, there were eight larcenies involving commercial businesses across the city. There have been no arrests in connection to the Old Town incidents, according to Alexandria Police.
