The cashier is such a nice lady, I sure hope she is ok!

Do you think people that commit robbery to places next to a major interstate actually lives here? Didn't cover her face. Only hope in catching her is when she does it again somewhere else. Hope she is caught before someone gets hurt.

Looks very close to her

Omg is everyone ok

Seriously, it’s like she wants to be caught....

Hope they catch her before she kills someone.

Never seen her

Cant imagine itll be hard to find her

Why we all need to carry guns.

Looking good guys

Nice looking young fellers

Swing and a hit tat's nor beards are a bad thing. Some of the best folks I know have one or the other or both.

Great job WPD! As long as they do their job correctly it shouldn’t matter if they have tattoos & facial hair โค๏ธ

I personally don't care how many tattoo's they may have as long as they do their job. I love WPD!!!

As long as they can do their jobs who cares if they have tats and facial hair. Good move WPD.

Very handsome boys! But I love facial hair!!!!

Spoke to a K9 officer (2/20) at Neers Mart. His beard looked good. An after thought, I wish I could have greeted the K9.

In all honesty, the only real problem with a beard is when you secure a protective mask.

Does not change a person what they look like, they put their lives in danger/ an save lives everyday for the public Thank You to All of you!!!!

Looking great gentlemen!

Handsome men. As long as you can do your job some trivial things should not matter

Glad to see it, well done WPD

Way to go! Great decision!

Like all forward thinking organizations, WPD keeps moving forward! Keepin’ it classy!

As long as you are a good cop I don't care what your face looks like or if you have tattoos. Granted I'm partial to a beard and tats never made me say no ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Awesome!!! Never trashy keeping it.. omg! As long as they are great cops who cares about beards and tatts! They are still human! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tattoos don’t effect a persons work ethic at all, I love this policy update! #thinblueline stay safe guys and gals

Handsome guys๐Ÿ˜€

Finally. Who the hell cares if an officer has a beard or tattoos. I only care if they are honest respectful and hard-working

I don't live in Winchester but all I can say is Nice very Nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hate to see PD's going to this (more facial hair) but I'm sure as the old-timer here it was just inevitable. Just don't let Steven Spaid grow a Fu Manchu please.

Good lord, tennessee needs more good looking ones like my hometown has! The county would make bank off me.

That’s a good lookin face Officer Keller ๐Ÿ˜

Classy handsome men do have beards and tattoos !!! Way to Go.. WPD

$250 out of a 7-11??? Did they load up the whole place like the Grinch or something?

Was it on route 50? Looks like the group running across traffic that was getting onto 37 last night. They were heading in the direction of McDonald's

Thank You for the Information ๐Ÿ‘ You do a great job WPD !!!

I’m just really impressed by the security cameras for once ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Good pictures, glad they took the time to pose for the camera. Hope they get caught soon!!

For those wondering how they stole $250 worth of stuff at 711 Most likely it was phone chargers or ear buds.. They run 25 a piece typically.

Well you have 3 people there, I'm sure between the 3 they could had accumulated that much .

Finally, surveillance cameras that work...

Great pics, should be easy

They're just misunderstood. ๐Ÿ™„

Wow! 7-11. Where ya get $7 worth of groceries for $11.00 !

Good camera shots. Should be found easily.

Were they on foot of did they have a vehicle?

Considering its 7-11 I'd say they got away with about 5 pieces of merchandise

I was wondering how you can shoplift 250.00 from 7/11 myself.

$250.00??? They must have taken cigarettes & beer!

Will be seeing more of this when the liberal bail laws take effect.

3 people could easily steal 250

Update please

Which 7-11

Did he take the entire store?

$250? So like, 4 packs of cigarettes?

Beef jerky

And look at dudes earbuds rainbow-colored yeah you won't be spotted quick, not to mention the smiley-face belt buckle funny as s*** people

Great photo

Wow, boy the negative attitude..... I think the police do a good job and yes they ask the public for help.... that is our duty as a community to help if we can.... it's people like you that makes their jobs hard..... just think if your house got broken into and the person was seen on camera, wouldn,t you ask if anyone knew them... I would and I'm sure you would too..... so keep your chin up there's better days ahead....

Sorry WPD. Weird ones came out for this one.

I don't have much faith in the police when they have to ask the public to do there job for them the truth of the matter is we have incompetent people policing our communities the cops need to get a job and get a real life

What the hell did i tell yall about posting my picture. Lawsuit guaranteed payday clowns

A million "thank you" to all the good men and women in our law enforcement who took this loser off the streets. Way to go!

Wow! I mean, she was looking after ya'lls parents/grandparents in Nursing Homes and flipping your eggs at Waffle House. Lucky I didnt get on her bad side and end up stabbed.

What gives any one the right to do such ๐Ÿ’ฉ? Great job catching her! POS!

That’s a hard looking 21yrs, looks like she was rode hard and put away wet!!

I went to school with her

Smithfield has been the site of police activity in recent months. It's time to get rid of the trash.

This gentleman looks similar to the male who broke into my husbands car at Planet Fitness, shattered his window, and attempted to purchase 400.00 worth of gift cards from Walgreens beside best buy. His face is clearly seen on camera, yet nothing has been posted on here to identify?....this occurred a month ago....

Hey everybody! Please take a close look at this guy. Please continue liking/sharing this post like crazy. He is wanted for questioning in regards for fraud at the Best Buy in Winchester. Please continue reposting as much as possible. Police need to talk to him asap.

It looks like he has a good wifi signal in his shirt.

The Winchester Police department is a dog and pony show there is not much police work going on just a bunch of BS and people collecting free pay checks

Really! So fuzzy!

It's obvious the dog and pony show can't do their jobs so they need the public to help them out

Umm....Juan......uh......wellllll....his beard and mustache......well....look familiar.

Lol I would never believe someone that has so much drama

Camera sucks!

So blurry

Winchester Police Department

The Winchester Police Department extends our condolences to Newport News Police Department, as they endure the tragic loss of Officer Thyne.This morning during a press conference Chief Drew announced the line of duty death of Officer Katherine "Katie" Thyne.

Officer Thyne (Badge #2237) is from New Hampshire and following a career in the Navy she joined the Newport News Police Department on November 13, 2018. She began the Newport News Police Training Academy on January 24, 2019 and graduated with her BLE 20 classmates on June 28, 2019. Following graduation she was assigned to South Precinct Watch II and remained active in the Navy Reserves.

Officer Thyne leaves behind her mother, three brothers, stepfather, her 2-year-old daughter and her loving partner. Officer Thyne was an amazing mother, officer and friend. Words cannot adequately describe how much we miss her. She will always be a part of the Newport News Police family.

We have received an outpouring of support from the community and we are incredibly thankful for that. People have also been asking about making donations. The Newport News Police Foundation has set up a link on their website at www.nnpolicefoundation.org/officerthyne.html

this sounds pretty cool

Brilliant! Following...

I'll definitely check it out

Awesomeness

Awesome

I love this however I don't particularly like the whole podcast thing, I think you should open up the conference room to the police department like once a week for all the evidence and case files basically pertaining to one case. then we can come in for like 2 hours look at the info and we can sit and brainstorm with the others.

Awesome

Cool!! Can’t wait!!

Steph. Amazing.

Nice

This sounds so exciting. Awesome idea!

This is so cool there are a couple cases that i know i would like answers to...

Sounds great! Hope it brings closure...

Good idea. Looking forward to a Behan & Smith performance.

This is soo wonderful people need to know what happened to their loved ones

Is anyone else extremely happy to know that there are so many other murderinos in Winchester?

I love this idea. You guys should collaborate with Mysterious WV youtube channel. It's like a mini unsolved mysteries complete with host in a camel trenchcoat!

Oh I hope this is not true, will be praying for all.

handley was full of predators when I went there so I'm not surprised this happens so often

if it’s true there’s should be zero tolerance but in today’s climate there is that very real possibility that nothing happened at all, or worse, it’s all a fabrication, a trap and a big fat lie.

I’m still waiting to hear back about the packages stolen from my porch in Winchester. A video was turned over and a police report was also filed. This was a year ago!

My guess is depends, gloves and chucks. I hope he gets caught

This happened to me during Christmas. Missed out on a gift someone sent me

So why dont folks have items dropped at work or somewhere else The packages get to the wrong place also

I thought people were leaving kitty litter and boxes now

Not going to tell us what was so disappointing to the thief I suppose

Hope it was dog poop

someone has to know him

What did he do

Bryant Spiker

I hope he stole dirty cat litter in a box douche bag

I thought law enforcement had special equipment to enhance plates to make out the numbers.

๐Ÿค” Enough of the tag is legible as is the make of the car. With the access to the dmv they have, can they really not figure this out?

This has to be a joke

Good remark is this old news..

Can’t see tag

Which Sheets?

Back in October. Why'd it take so long to post?

We are already paying taxes for the cops to do their job. Now there is no reason for yall to be a bunch of snitches and do the cops work for them

Michael was a very kind man...he was homeless and gravitated to that side of town...he had severe memory issues and often didn't know if he was coming or going...but he was very sweet and talkative in every interaction we had with him...he would tell you the same stories over and over but we always pretended like it was the first time we heard them...hopefully in heaven he will now have the life he deserved on Earth...

prayers for the family and friends of this young man and the truck driver

How awful. Prayers to family, friends first responders and the truck driver.

First off.. Prayers too ALL involved.. Second, it doesn't say rather he was under the Truck Wheel's or Trailer Wheel's, If he was under the Semi, it could be difficult to see, especially with a trailer hooked up

This is very sad but who would go to sleep under a truck. Prayers for all involved.

Michael came into the shelter to alot of times I was working there . We gave him things to keep him warm . I would make sure he crossed the street safely. RIP MICHAEL MARTIN

Praying for the driver having to live with this horrible issue that happened

Prayers for this man's family and for the truck driver who now has to live with those for the rest of their life.

Doing a pretrip isn't always going to put you down on the ground with a flashlight checking every shadow on the ground under your entire truck and trailer... Instead of criticizing this poor man that has to live with knowing he accidentally killed someone...and other comments I've seen talking badly about the man that fell asleep in an extremely dangerous place...why can't we understand that this could have been prevented from many different angles, and say a prayer or send positive vibes to those truly affected by the situation?

Breaks my heart ๐Ÿ’” Michael was such a sweet guy....

Wow. That hat to be extremely scary for the driver ๐Ÿ™ Glad there's still people who report this stuff instead of fleeing.

What a horrible thing to happen, for the pedestrian and the driver.

How very sad for all involved. Praying for all๐Ÿ’›

So sad. Prayers to both. I couldn’t imagine

so sad..prayers for all involved...

Wonder. Where this fellows. Family is Ashame we have homeless in this town Some are veterans I wonder. If he was

Maybe we should wonder why this guy was under the truck in the first place.

Feel sorry for both Trucker prolly sleeping in his cab. Just took off So sad

Prayers for everyone

One of the most corrupt Police Departments and Court Systems I've ever researched. The Department of Justice should do an internal investigation.

Man everyone sure likes to speculate on here!!!! Prayers to the deceased

Poor fella was probably asleep homeless.I feel bad for the truck driver

Prayers for all

Makes me believe just because he was homeless, why he wasn't being charged pretrip laws smh

Prayers to all

Dane Dwayne Miller, 31, of Stephens City, was arrested by Winchester Police (WPD) on December 27, 2019 and charged with three counts of cruelty to animals and two counts of inadequate care of animal by owner for failing to provide adequate water and shelter.

The arrest stems from a November 26, 2019 incident in which a WPD Animal Control Officer (ACO) responded to a home in the 2900 block of 2nd Street in Winchester to conduct an animal welfare check. Upon arrival at the residence, the officer found the bodies of three deceased puppies in an enclosure with one additional live puppy and an adult dog, an adult dog and puppy running loose in the backyard, and an adult dog in a shed.

The ACO reported that no water, food, or shelter was available to the dogs in the enclosure. Two of the deceased puppies were wet with blood and appeared to have died within 24 hours before the welfare check. Each had severe puncture wounds on their front legs and necks, with one bleeding from the ears and missing her left rear foot. The third deceased puppy appeared to have been eaten by the other dogs and had been deceased for longer than 24 hours. The ACO described the scene as โ€œgruesome.โ€

All of the dogs, both alive and deceased, were seized by the WPDโ€™s Animal Control Officer and taken to the Winchester-Frederick-Clarke SPCA.

After an investigation, warrants were obtained for Millerโ€™s arrest. Miller was released on an unsecured bond.

This guy should be given life and to spend it locked 24X7 in the same kind of miserable conditions that killed those pups.

How awful for the pups and dogs.. makes me angry and disgusted that a human can and will treat their animals like they're nothing. I feel for the animals but not the humans that act like monsters..... Prayers for the puppies lost and love and prayers yo those saved... ๐Ÿ˜ก

WOW!!! I sure hope he receives maximum penalty. Unfortunately, I doubt its much more than a slap.on the wrist. There is no excuse for this happening with all of the animal resources available to help.

No words. I hope they throw the book at him and lock him up for many years. Maybe if there were stiffer punishments like life in prison this kind of crulety would stop. Poor poor babies.

I truly wonder how his neighbors could just watch this happen. They are just as responsible. If you see something say something ๐Ÿ˜ก

This is the kind of monster that will send a "sweet looking" lady to your door interested in a "free puppy to good home". Don't give puppys and dogs away to people you haven't checked out thoroughly. And then go get your animals spayed or neutered. Too often this is the fate of those cute puppies you gave away to that "sweet lady " or "nice family".

Such a terrible thing. Cruel and sick. No animal deserves this. Thank you WPD for taking action on this horrible event.

So he claims that the mom killed the puppies.... if he knew that, why didn’t he take care of the deceased?? And to not have proper shelter and necessities?! If you cant treat animals the same way you treat yourself, don’t have pets!!!

He should be hung up by his toes and be tortured just like those innocent puppies. This makes m e upset that someone can be so mean to animals.

I'll never understand why people have animals and don't take care of them. I imagine they do their humans the same way! Pitiful!!

This is disturbing and so disgusting. I'm glad he was arrested. but why is he free? Those people that cant no longer care and love their animal, you need to find them a loving home. I hope he gets what is due "The max"!!

Rotten rotten thing (won't call it a human). Hope this thing spends a long time in jail and is never allowed to have another sweet pet

Thank you Winchester police department for taking these crimes seriously and making the arrest!

Those poor babies..๐Ÿ˜ช...wish he would get the same treatment..

What a horrible situation. I hope he gets the maximum penalty. An animal shouldn't be treated like that . I feel for those poor babies.

Poor things were starving to the point they had to attack and eat their sibling!!!!!! ๐Ÿฅต What the hell! You will rot in hell for sure!

So, multiple dogs, multiple comments of people that have seen his "kennels", multiple addresses. At what point is he going to be investigated for puppy mills or dog fighting? This is shady as hell.

If you can’t take care of an animal! Then please find them a home that will!

I have no words for this kind of person, how sad for the fur babies & glad some are now safe.

I’d like to know what kind of dogs were injured. I’m missing mine and I’d like to know if she fell victim to this crime.

He should never have been let out on bond! I sure hope he never sees the light of day again!

Why is he out on bond? Isn’t it now a felony to abuse animals?

Awesome job guys. Why someone does this to animals is beyond me.

Released really wth is wrong with our system next it will be a child??? Sad!

Anyone who treats animals badly bears watching because they will most likely lack empathy for fellow human beings.

Did they ever find the person? I know where the truck sits.

Joshua Hartman, this is the truck that i watched back into the car behind it, coming out of PepBoys. They said it was a h7t and run!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't much younger children allowed to drive farm vehicles on the farm? I wonder if someone got cocky while mom and dad were out.

Looks like a grown man driving and perhaps a young boy as passenger if u zoom in..Definitely early 90’s model Ford F-150

Why can't police run the vin numbers to find the owner? Or is that not something that shows up on their computers? Doesn't farm use vehicles still pay personal property taxes?

Why is a farm use truck on out the roads at 9:30 at night

Looks like a blue dodge!

Probably don't have a green card

Joe Lewis

Is it a dodge ?

Im pretty sure i seen this truck yesterday when i was heading to work. I remember the sticker on the back window.

The truck is sitting in the hospital parking (medical office building 2) lot now, been there for over an hour- and yes I’ve called it in but not sure anyone came out.

Definitely a 92-96 f150 or 92-97 f250, definitely a guy and possibly a younger Male or shorter older lady, that guy has to be 6'2" at least. I have a friend that has one similar to this one but it's not him. His has the tailgate and not that sticker I'm the back glass.

Was just joking about farm tags the other day. I see so many every day driving up and down 50 into Winchester etc like clearly not the "farm" and yet no inspections etc etc I am going to start tagging all my vehicles with those I mean hell clearly can drive wherever your ",farm" takes you.v

That's what Virginia gets for allowing people to drive vehicles on the roads with no license plates good for you Virginia get your foot off that man's chest

Hunter Dylan Hernandez, 25, of Fayetteville, WV, was stopped by officers near the intersection of E. Boscawen Street and N. Cameron Street for driving without headlights and traveling the wrong way on a one-way street. Officers conducted field sobriety tests on Hernandez, who was initially cooperative. However, after being advised he was under arrest for driving under the influence, Hernandez resisted the officersโ€™ attempts to place him in custody. During the several-minute encounter, Hernandez attempted to flee while punching and shoving the officers. A 2016 Mini Cooper was also damaged during the incident.

Great job!!! ๐Ÿ‘

such an angry little man....

As always, GREAT JOB WPD

Great job WPD.

Wonderful Job, WPD!!!

Great job WPD

Do the crime, you do the time!

Everyone who has commented any disrespectful comments is beyond rude! Shame on all of you! I know Hunter and he is one of the most amazing and funniest guys I have ever met. What he did was wrong, I won’t deny that. But, he is sick... I don’t even recognize him in this picture. If you knew him (actually knew him, not just have seen him or went to school with him), you’d be in shock too. So instead of being judgmental, try being considerate about what he could be going through.

Never knew the X-man was in town!

Cheryl Bates look who it is from the bar. Remember me saying I never cared so muh for him and ect. And that he would get mad when we cut him off.

Great job to the officers

Guess who won’t be home for Christmas!!!

Sock em' down! Glad he is off the road!

Play stupid games win stupid prizes! Great work WPD!

Good work!!

Dude... I went to high school with this dude. Lowkey not shocking considering he was always the partying guy.

If you can afford to go out and drink you can afford a cab home.

What a piece of work

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ how did that work out for ya bro!?

Wow. Eyes say alot

I’d be mad if I was that bald at 25 too

Dude drives a mini cooper and wants to fight police? Really bro?

Well that's Good. George Good that is

He looks like he knows how to make good decisions.

I’m actually surprised he didn’t pick up a DUI charge too.

Why in the world people tattoo their face like that is beyond me.

The tattoos on his face are Japanese for I don’t have a day job

URGENT RELEASE: Spike in Overdoses in the Northern Shenandoah Valley Being Reported. Family, friends urged to have naloxone. Please share!

WINCHESTER – Six opioid overdoses have been reported by the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug Task Force since Tuesday – one of them fatal. This after no overdoses were reported between November 22nd and December 2nd. A spike such as this in overdoses indicates that the heroin being sold and used in the community is highly potent and more likely to cause an overdose. The Northern Shenandoah Valley Substance Abuse Coalition is urging family and friends of people who use opioids to carry naloxone and to know the signs of an overdose.

Prayers that everyone is ok. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Hope everyone is okay

Getting rid of the light at Loudoun / Southwerk wasn't the best idea. People on Loudoun often don't stop. I've almost been hit twice in that crosswalk, neither driver even slowed.

Assuming breathe tested driver, taken vehicle for brakes check and sanded the icy road.

Glad they are ok. How hard is it to pay attention? I understand accidents happen, but this seems like some major distracted driving.

Wow! I just drove thru that intersection ๐Ÿค” They must have been going way over 25 mph!

Dang i hope everyone is ok in all parties

Hope everyone is safe

I hope everyone is ok!

Wow. I was wondering what was going on down there? Glad everyone is ok.

How in the world do you not see the car in front of you? Dang. So sorry y'all. Glad no one was hurt.

Sorry to see this. Hope police is not harmed.

Thank you Dwayne. Fitting ending to plenty of nothing.

Poor guy assendded a cop car.

Press hard, five copies!๐Ÿค”

Lights at said intersection AND that of Whitlock Avenue/S. Loudoun were both ripped of their lights,which were replaced by 4-way stops. I wrote to City Council about it, knew there would be problems but no...they took the lights away.

Obvious the Saturn was at fault here but that intersection has become dangerous since the traffic light was removed. People traveling on Loudon often do not stop. Maybe add some blinking lights when the elementary school is dismissing?

gotta luv that Winchester grammar!!

Glad all are ok!

I just read bout the 2 police officers .Glad u giys wasnt hurt. And my prayers gos out to u both. Glad u all caught the person . God bless u both!!!!!!!!

Glad he is ok.

Had nothing to do with lights or stop signs. The man was on drugs. I was sitting the next car back when this happened. The man driving the Saturn got out and just continuously vomited in the middle of the road. He couldnt even speak he was throwing up so much. It was disgusting. I had to sit there and watch it till I was finally able to go around the accident. ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข

Bet He won't ever say " You can never find a Policeman when you need one" . Glad they wasn't hurt and got Him off the street .

Speaking of traffic lights I don't know who the traffic light coordinator is here in Frederick County Winchester area but he's a real dipshit

Hate all these four way stops they have put up everywhere.

Good way to get arrested have your drugs with you then hit police

Thank You for the Information ๐Ÿ‘ You do a great job WCPD

I’m still baffled by the fact that the cameras for wal mart and target barely make out someone’s face, yet I can almost tell if this guy has a booger in his nose๐Ÿค”! Hope they catch him!

I conducted Loss Prevention at Kohls in the late 90s (over 20 years ago) and the security cameras were the best in the area. HD quality with zoom and perfect color. Stores everywhere yet don’t spend money on quality systems, and continue to use standard definition.

who on this planet has not yet figured out that you’re being filmed, recorded, and tracked while you sleep at night!!

I hope they catch him. They have great cameras.

That’s a super good photo! Let’s hope we catch this guy! ๐Ÿ’–

That is actually a pretty good photo.

Dewberry as in the DEWBERRY & DAVIS ?

I seen this guy at Walmart on 50 west

This guy was a member of my gym a couple years ago. He was very strange

Wow great camera!

I will be in the hunt!!!

Could pass for Bill Engvall’s brother!

Angel Jessica is this the Chris guy that used to work with us?!

Sammy Burke this looks like the jerk who used to come into Lowe’s all the time and try to scam us out of returns

seriously, what’s in the SS worth going to jail for??!!

Brian Manning

With this photo I'm sure that he will be identified.

Ummm... cant they use a professional Image Search to search the internet for his photo on Social media? Like the image search that the MTV show Catfish uses/ used to use? ๐Ÿคช

I assume it is a felony shoplifting? Not just a propane tank, or something.

Derryberry couldn’t catch a fly

I've seen him at work a few times

Please tell me the officer's first name is not Jerry LOL!

Can’t remember his name. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

ATTENTION SHOPPERS! It's almost time to Black Friday shop 'til you drop - make sure you follow these tips to keep yourself and your property safe:

โœ… LOCK YOUR VEHICLE DOORS! We can't stress this enough. Keep valuables out of sight and locked in the trunk.
โœ… DON'T LEAVE YOUR WINDOWS DOWN! It's too cold to do this anyway, but it's a good reminder - someone can easily unlock your vehicle if they gain access through an open window.
โœ… PARK IN WELL-LIT AREAS OF THE PARKING LOT! Keep your keys in hand and be aware of your surroundings at all times.
โœ… BE EXTRA VIGILANT ABOUT WATCHING FOR PEDESTRIANS! Fellow shoppers may dart in and out of parked cars into the travel lanes, risking life and limb to get to that 60% off sale on that one item that everyone wants. Slow down in parking lots and heavily foot-trafficked areas like Old Town Winchester.
โœ… AVOID PHYSICAL ALTERCATIONS OVER ITEMS IN STORES! Is that Baby Yoda plush really worth a record? Is it even out yet?? You can probably get it online. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
โœ… REPORT UNACCOMPANIED CHILDREN TO MALL SECURITY OR THE WPD. Our non-emergency number is 540-662-4131.
โœ… IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. No one dropped a sketchy black duffle bag full of money. Or they did. Either way, if you see something that doesn't seem right, like an unaccompanied bag, report it immediately. Our emergency number is 911, our non-emergency number is 540-662-4131, or you can seek out Mall security/shop owner help in contacting us.

The WPD hopes that you have a fun and safe post-Thanksgiving shopping excursion!

Don't leave anything that you want to keep in your locked car. They'll break your window and perhaps get lucky. Don't do it.

I'll be home eating leftovers. I so not feel that the supposed deals are worth the fuss and crowds.

And that’s why I stay at home!! Lol

Last year, the WPD netted a total of 189 DUI arrests. Thanksgiving weekend is one of the deadliest times of year on the road, with Thanksgiving Eve famous for being the โ€œBiggest Drinking Night of the Yearโ€ across the U.S. Ensure that you, your family, and your fellow commuters are left without tragedy this holiday by drinking responsibly, arranging sober rides home, never texting and driving, and getting plenty of rest to prevent drowsy driving. The WPD wishes you a safe and blessed Thanksgiving! ... See MoreSee Less
