• Keep your doors and windows locked at all times, even when you are home.
• If someone is at your door, verify who it is before opening it.
• Do not display expensive items that are within view from the outside.
• Record or register items in your home that have serial numbers.
• While away from home, make it appear that someone is home by utilizing lights inside and outside.
• If you have a security system, activate it at night and while away.

Thank you Winchester Police. Your officers made the difference in my darkest hour! Due to the compassion of one in particular, I am here today! Your lives matter to me, because you treated mine like it did too.

The Winchester Police Department (WPD) has launched an awareness campaign titled “Fight the Fraud Inferno” in order to educate residents about how to safeguard their personal information and protect their finances. From January 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019, the WPD received over 250 calls regarding reports of fraud and potential scams. Many reports of fraud cannot be investigated by local police, because scammers are difficult to track down and often live outside the United States.

“When our citizens become victims of crime in which they are losing thousands of dollars, we want to do everything we can to carry out justice for them. We come to work each day to enforce the laws and investigate incidents to the fullest extent. That’s why these cases are frustrating for our officers,” stated Sgt. Adam Orndorff of the WPD Criminal Investigations Division.

“Prevention is key. Therefore, we must educate the public, especially seniors who are often specifically targeted,” stated Lt. Amanda Behan who is leading the campaign. “Scammers are continuingly developing new ways to scare and trick us out of money, which is the reason for the campaign name. An inferno is a fire that is out of control, and so is the amount of money Winchester victims are losing.“

The campaign began with the distribution of an educational flyer at the Top of Virginia TRIAD Senior Fall Festival event on October 10, 2019, which was attended by over ­125 people. WPD personnel will work with community partners to help spread the educational material. In the future, the campaign will include the release of videos and other promotional materials on the WPD social media pages.

He looks a bit intoxicated! Check with a few of the bars down there!

I hope his new outfit was ok.

If they hunt him like they do the people who run a stopped bus on Ackson Ave & N. Braddock St ext then he has nothing to worry about.....they never came to look at my video if the STOPPED BUS RUNNER, never asked for plates.

Seems to be very intoxicated!

He paid society back in giggles. No need to charge the poor fella.

It's the parking's arm fault, the guy was riding his bike peacefully and the arm pushed him, it's clear! 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣

High on something!! The sidewalk was on the other side of the pole!!

Look for someone very hungover today.

May even be mentally challenged by some of the movements.

He couldn’t get the bike through the gate so he destroyed the gate. Bro there’s a sidewalk right there lol

I don't think he's drunk, it looks like special needs.

Oh my!!! I’d say alcohol had something to do with this....not that it makes it right but he didn’t even appear to know where he was.

I think he had something to do with Cheryl's she shed...

I remember my first beer

Stacy Emerick i agree 100 percent with u that was exactly what i said when i saw the video b4 i even saw ur comment

Obviously inebriated and going through some emotional stress!

Why’d he break the gate to not even go through it? He turned around and went right back the way he came.

Wow. A whole manhunt for being drunk and bending a parking arm.

That parking garage is pointless. Always empty. So what.

He went out the way he came in...without going in😳

Looks like it be downtown, Winchester, VA. Parking garage!

Must of been making sure when that parking arm knocked him down it didn’t steal his clothes too.

Well at least he wasn't doing a Cool Hand Luke and cutting off parking meter heads...

Don’t you hate it when when those things just pop out In front of you. Not like anyone could go around. On a bike!

IS THAT HARLEY?🙄😂

Mick Manhattan here's the original post <3

He hid in trashcans. He danced with aspiring ballerinas. He wore WFRD turnout gear. Detective Craig Smith would do just about anything to spark joy in his colleagues and the community, and we are sad to announce the retirement of our most prominent social media star!

Detective Smith has been a wonderful mentor and friend, an inspiring leader, and of course a huge part of the fun community outreach projects that the WPD has been able to accomplish. We wish him the absolute best as he enters the next phase of his life - but we'll be sure to never lose touch.

Take a peek at Detective Smith's career and listen to excerpts of the inspiring speech that he delivered at the basic academy graduation in May 2019.

Thank you, Craig!! 🥳🎉🎊

I work in telecommunications, and part of my field is 911 voice and messaging. This is interesting to me, and I'm curious: How do you determine what messages get sent to your specific answering post? Can anyone in your physical jurisdiction use it, or only residents?

Does Frederick county offer this as well?

This is amazing 😭🙏🏼

Crazzy...I hope they are identified!! Long ago I was filling in one time if you all remember the old 711 on featherbed lane (Ed was mgr)behind counter was a step up u kinda looked down at customers. A guy came in and looked around then grabbed the BIG charity Mda donation jug...But he didn't scope it out good cause it was hooked to a chain tucked behind.needless to say he grabbed n ran with it..when chain kicked in it jerked him(a sight to see) and the jar went sailing bk n hit front n change n bills went everywhere!! Karma baby

That's just common to take from people who work hard for their tips. I hope she is caught. Not acceptable!!

This is horrible I hope both of them is caught and prosecuted.

I hope they prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law. Maybe if we made people go to the town square and stand on a platform and make apologize and shame them with a sing around their neck for their kids and friends to see they wouldn’t do these things.

It’s a rare occasion I say this... but after viewing the footage, this is the first thing that came to mind. “C U NEXT TUESDAY”

Wow! How brazen! And the man was in on it, too, based on him quickly driving the car up to her at the entrance rather than waiting for her in the parking lot. Again, Holy Cow!

😠 That’s rotten! I hope there were cameras outside...he knew what she was going to do, he pulled the car right up to the front door for her to run out.

Her mama must be so proud!!!!!

Why so stores always have cameras so high up? Well either way I hope it was good enough to catch her that was a lousy thing to do..

She knew what she wanted. Hope they catch her.

Wow.. for a few bucks? Hope she slept good last night in her own bed. Lol 😝 Go get her WPD

Hope we hear the end result...was she arrested? Hope so. Can’t stand a thief!

They should sentence both of them to work at that location from 5 to closing for one month donating all thier tips and wages to charity.

And they wonder why some kids act the way they do when we have adults doing this kind of thing!!!!

That guy def knew what was happening. You can tell they knew when know one was around to grab it and go

Seems to me they can pull cash register receipts and see if they paid by debit or credit card. Then cross reference it and snag them up.

Pretty sad that businesses are going to have to start gluing these things down 😡

At the beginning, it appeared the 2 was talking about something and he hurried out. I don't think it was a spur of the moment thing. I bet they have done this before. Hope you catch them

And community service at jersey mikes ( washing tables, floors, taking out trash) with a sign on them of what they did

The lowest of life!

Wow that’s braising! Don’t people realize we are being watched all the time 😜.

Some people are just common. Hopefully they are caught.

Very wrong!........ But I have to ask, where are the employees? Doesn't not ONE person stay at least in eye contact with customers ? Chances are they will not risk being caught stealing the tip jar if an employee is within sight of them.

Hopefully there's a camera somewhere outside that caught a license plate

Now that’s bold! Hope she’s caught - ridiculous. You don’t take what’s not yours.

My parents vehicle got rummaged through. They always lock it. The one time it was left unlocked, unintentionally, something happens. They ALWAYS lock their vehicles.

I have to say that I really can't feel sorry for people that leave their cars unlocked. Sad but times have changed and a lot of mean people out there.

in other words...PEOPLE for petes sake lock your cars!!!

I received something similar to this several months ago. It had a company from Texas on the check. I googled the company and they were a legit company, and I asked them if they knew anything about the check and they said it was a fraud scam. I turned everything over to the Morgan Co. Sheriff's office but they said that they couldn't do anything about it, which didn't surprise me. It's like living in Mayberry!!

Thanks for the info

Thank You for the Information. You do a great job WPD !!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Thank you.

I knew it was fake. I called the company to let them know that someone was using their business in a fraud manner.

Ive received something like this about a year ago!

the note alone says it all.

Yep and the guy text us back last night and said to go to Walmart and pay his movers

I really hope people don’t fall for stupid stuff like that. I mean really, look at the note errors all over it. Not addressed to anyone, no salutation whatsoever and the check is just all wrong

I am hoping to come to the Citzens Academy. It is a great way to learn what this department and it's officers have to deal with everyday. As seen in the posted video, not all days are easy. I totally support the Winc PD and this particular officer.

The sad thing is the officer in charge believes he did nothing wrong so I refrain from criticism on his behalf as I'm sure it's a taught behavior. Then he spent 8 days in jail, never was arraigned.. wow you better hope he doesn't bring civil action against you. Wow

While I'm sure most of you are excellent officers that protect and serve the fine citizens of this country what I witnessed on YouTube pakvim.net/watch/9QF-6yYPgx4 was absolutely a violation of our constitution, human rights and not to mention a waste of the taxpayers money. The prosecutor, the public defender and the judge should be held accountable.

Yes, you too can be taught to beat up, violently beat up an innocent man, deny medical attention, destroy evidence and withhold personal property and money, and force an attorney on someone at the threat of holding the person in jail for 3 months if he doesn't take him, who by the way, admits the local judicial system is corrupt. Watch this video, and see if you agree. Yes, start your training this fall. All of this, because a meter maid gave parking ticket, on a unexpired meter. What a joke! youtu.be/9QF-6yYPgx4

Thank You for the Information 👍 You do a Great Job 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Never heard of the store but I’m sure she’ll do it again. Just tell the store to grab the plate number the next time she drives off if anyone notices her. 👍🏻 thanks for your hard work Winchester 🇺🇸

Why would anyone steal from them? This is a great store, especially for those on food stamps! I always thank God for them. Single parents are so grateful for them! That's really low,she should have just told them her plight and they probably would have given it to her.

Man I wish stores would invest in better cameras. I hate theives and would love to help catch one but man I can take better pics with my cell phone

What’s sad is when a Judge lets one go on bail and they disappear AGAIN. Try having your home broken into twice by the same ones, 8k tools and jewelry and items stolen. Three years later I’m still waiting for justice. But like I said took a year to catch one of them Judge let her go. Known heroine addict with felonies even. Let go... let that sink in. Oh and you don’t want to go to court about it, even when judge calls recess you ask the so called city attorney if he needed to talk to you and have a bailiff run up to you stinking his finger in your face yelling at you to never do that again. Do what? Guess it was asking our city attorney one question while court was in recess. Lots of luck with catching the thieves.

So It’s been brought to my attention that Kayla Nicole posted that this is me. 1st off I don’t steal, 2nd I don’t wear Washington Nationals, 3rd I have very visible arm tattoos and a diamond necklace that NEVER leaves my neck! I’d appreciate anymore comments by her be sent directly to me as I’ve already taken one person to court for internet slander and I will do the same to her as this is an ongoing issue with her. It’s a shame she couldn’t keep her boyfriend happy so he left her and shes butthurt since him and I are together just had a baby and planning a wedding. Since she can’t grow up and chooses to keep posting about me everywhere I’ll be filing court papers on her as well. t’s really sad that someone would steal from sharp shopper but then again we don’t know their story. Times are hard for some people and someone’s receiving assistance is almost impossible for those that need it. I pray this lady gets the help she needs to prevent this from happening again.

You have a not so good image then take a picture of it with a phone or camera. Can't you all load the original?

But nobody know that girls story on why she done y’all people are quick to judge someone I pray she gets the help she need and gods fixes the reason she is stealing

One of the cheapest stores around..SHAME ON YOU

See they even use cheap cameras !

Not bad. Go Nats 😉

Looks like Sammy Jo.... but then again she gets too many food stamps to have to steal 🤷🏼‍♀️

Wowwww.. Really? Thats like stealing from the Dollar Tree!

Sharp shoppers seriously smh

🤣

I’m laughing so hard 😂😂😂😂 what a clown

She looks like two ppl I've met since over been out here...but doult it was then

A Miller?

“Internet slander” like the police department didn’t post this for the communities help 🤦🏼‍♀️ that’s what crack does to ya kids 😂

You have to be the bottom of the barrel of bottom feeders to steal from Sharp Shopper.

Scum.

That means school buses will once again become part of your morning and afternoon commutes - let's keep our school bus stops safe by observing the law and stopping every time you see the school bus lights, stop sign, and stop arm activated. If you don't stop for those lights, you risk seeing our police lights - or even worse, ambulance lights. 🚨

I'm not ready for my kids to go back to school but they need their education that's the important part. I hope everyone has a wonderful year. Also thank you Winchester police department for everything yall do for our community. Also I try to let people know you can share pictures of your kids in their awesome school outfit just dont show what school their going to theirs way to many predators out their that are sick in the head.

Yes be very careful

A few years ago my child was almost hit by someone who chose to drive right through a school bus stop (with the sign out and everything). It was horrifying. I’m even more surprised that the buses don’t have exterior cameras to catch the people who break these laws. So important to follow the laws regarding school buses!!

Hey Terry E Orndorff. Tell her to come sit on Green. She could write tickets ALL day long. Morning and afternoon. Cars pass the stopped bus sign at least 3x a week, just at van fossen and green. The kids bus driver said it happens to her constantly!

Good grief that's early. Poor kids.

Wow you all really start back early, hardly a summer break

Thank you so very much for what you do to keep our children safe

this is not the first, 2nd or even 3rd time shots have been fired on Kent Street. The whole street needs extra patrol.

North Kent Street, isn't the police station at the intersection of North Kent Street and Piccadilly?

While you're over there investigating, shoo those bums outta town. Send em to Martinsburg.

Y'all are corrupt. READ: Re: Estate of D'Londre Minifield v. City of Winchester UPDATE 11-29-19 @9:37PM Chief Judge Urbanksi in the US DISTRICT COURT in the Western District of Virginia DENIES THE CITY OF WINCHESTER'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT TODAY AND REOPENS DISCOVERY FOR 6 MORE MONTHS.... SEE ORDER ATTACHED HERE Breaking: New INFORMATION in the Minifield Police Homicide civil rights case filed in US district federal court (i.e., which occured on 2-28-16 near Orchard Crest Apartments) demonstrates Dlondre Minifield did not shoot himself in the back of his head and that he was not lying face down on the ground when the fatal shot was fired contrary to the statements by Winchester police officers and the City Administration. Indeed sworn testimony was entered into the record this week during ongoing litigation which supports that 1) DLondre Minifield was hanging over a 6ft fence after he was shot; and 2) that one of Minifields legs became snagged in the fence hindering police officers from being able to pull the lifeless body off the fence "after" he had been shot and killed. The police officers maintained Minifield jumped on the ground face down after being chased by Officer Chris Ivins and then field trainee Stephanie Sills. They say Minifield refused to comply with commands from officers at which time Minifield purportedly turned his head to the left and placed a 38 caliber revolver behind his right ear and pulled the trigger. However, the disinterested eye witnesses testified under oath that he was not shot on the ground but instead while climbing a 6ft fence and that Minifield hung from the fence lifeless after a police officer discharged their firearm. This supports the Estates position that a pervasive conspiracy by the Winchester Police Dept police officers and other agencies and officers to cover up the identity of the police officer who shot Minifield in the back of his head existed and is still ongoing. And most likely that Officers coordinated this dubious scheme with one another and local/state agency top officials and several local businesses/individuals before they planted a 38 Snub Nose Police Chief bull dog revolver under Minifields body and tampered/altered the wound site on decedent's head. Counsel for the City of Winchester stated none of the 10 police cruisers which were involved in the incident were equipped with dashcams during the chase and shooting death of DLondre Minifield. Additionally WPD police officers intentionally drafted false police reports and voluminous PRESS RELEASES which incorporated knowingly false statements by the officers involved who reported D'Londre Minifield was the individual with a gun during a fight 1/2 mile away from where Minifield was discovered by officers. Officer Stephanie Sills may have perjured herself last week when she swore under oath that Minifield shot and killed himself while lying face down on the ground; when apparently the un-corroborating witnesses' testimony clearly showed that Sills most likely knew Minifield [did not] commit suicide. Sanzenbacher's sudden departure(soon after Minifields Estate filed its Notice of Claim) is a strong indicator the municipality also had affirmative knowledge of the wrongful conduct and forced the former chief of police out of the Winchester Police Dept to control the damage and further hide/obfuscate the events which are most likely blemishing the City of Winchester's and its Administration's credibility, judgment, morality and municiple ethics. Further -- and specifically -- Former Chief of Police Kevin Sanzenbacher, current Major Kelly Rice, Former City Attorney Tony Williams and current City Manager Eden Freeman for the City of Winchester and no less than eight (8) WPD police officers, (3) Frederick County Sheriffs deputies and others should be placed under indictment by a federal grand jury. Or at the very least a Special Grand Jury should be convened to investigate the City of Winchester and the police officers involved. If you live in the City of Winchester contact your city councilman and the Mayor. Demand accountability!! All of these individuals should be termimated if they havent been yet. THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE LARGEST AND MOST PERVASIVE MULTI JURISDICTIONAL, MULTI-AGENCY POLICE HOMICIDE COVERUP IN MODERN HISTORY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA.

I’m sure the police would rather see comments that would lead to an arrest. Some of you are very sick minded to say the things that are being said here. May your kids or family members ever have to hear such bullying from others, because KARMA does strike back. May the officers bring them both to justice♥️.

I seen them these two that are pictured at Ranson Home Depot Thur afternoon. They were outside in lawn & garden when I pulled up. They had long sleeves on and a hoodie on and it was hot! I immediately recognize them from this Facebook post. These two waited for a huge tall white male to come out and he pulled something out of this clothes and gave it to the black guy. Then all 3 ran and got into a dark blue Chevy Colbolt car WV tags ending in 211. The police were on their way I tried to block them but they threw it in reverse and bolted threw the parking lot. The car had more people in it too. Hope they get the help they need.

That crew definitely will stand out

I would check every RV from Martinsburg to Harrisonburg. Careful, Mobile meth labs tend to explode. 😂

Hope they stole some steriods 🤷🏼‍♂️

I thought we weren't raiding Area 51 till September...

Sorry people know they’ve done wrong but can’t see making fun of others maybe he has cancer etc. or maybe he does do drugs either way if these guys need help I hope they get it.

I love the people sticking up for these clowns in this thread. I bet you guys are the kinda people that would apologise to Isis too huh? 😂😂

Well, when you catch them make sure you let the one on the right phone home....

Just a dude and the alien he got from the Area 51 raid.

Well anyone know whats up with the Triangle Diner? 🤣

Guy on the right looks like they just freed him from Area 51.

Escape from area 51

I saw them at vixens.

It's the middle of summer and dude still white as a ghost!

I'll contact Agents Fox and Mulder, they'll find them, The Truth is Out There

Found the area 51 alien.

I can’t believe those two were up to no good.

Shouldn’t be too difficult to spot. Well, except for the transparent guy.

Area 51 comes to Winchester....

Are they trying out for THE WALKING DEAD????

Happens everyday at Lowe's.

Were they METHodical?

that’s definitely duddits from dream catcher... google it.. stay woke

Pretty sure the guy on the right is Ninja from Fortnite.....

See that license plate light out little girl? Let's pull them. But it's daytime! So ....

Teach them how to use it right! I was pulled over in southern Virginia for “ running 88 in a 65” with cruise set on 70 as a Silverado blew past me while we were passing the incompetent cop running radar.

I would like to learn radar

Lets talk about civil asset forfeiture next.

"...can become part of a healthy ecosystem" .... No. They cannot. They are an invasive species who do nothing but harm and disrupt the natural ecosystem, and kill billions of native birds and mammals each year. Spaying and neutering does seem to be the best way to control populations (though research is still quite lacking in that area) but please don't spread misinformation saying that they can be beneficial. They do not belong in this ecosystem. Sources: link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10530-018-1796-y www.nature.com/articles/ncomms2380

Why do they advise NOT feeding wet ( canned ) food to outdoor cats ? ( trying to learn all I can on this subject )

Increase Reported in Drug Overdoses:
Task Force reports spike in overdoses over the past week

WINCHESTER – Seven drug overdoses have been reported by the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug and Gang Task Force in the past week and two of the individuals who suffered an overdose, lost their lives. The Northern Shenandoah Valley Substance Abuse Coalition (NSVSAC) wants to bring awareness to these latest overdoses in hopes of preventing anyone else from dying.

The most recent overdose death happened on Wednesday, July 17th in Frederick County. On Sunday, July 14th, an individual died in Clarke County. The five non-fatal overdoses happened in Winchester (2), Frederick County (2), and Shenandoah County (1). The latest overdoses bring the total number of deaths in 2019 to 20 and the total number of non-fatal overdoses to 75.

The NSVSAC is asking the public to share the latest overdose alert with others in an effort to bring awareness. It is encouraged that family members and friends of individuals who use opioids or heroin obtain NARCAN, a medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose and saves lives. The next REVIVE! training will be held on August 5, 2019 from 10 a.m. – Noon at Shenandoah University, Brandt Student Center, Room Number 118. To register go to www.surveymonkey.com/r/NH2K73G. Attendees of the REVIVE! training will receive NARCAN for free. NARCAN can also be picked up at any of the Lord Fairfax Health District Health Departments. Please call to schedule a short training and to receive the medication. For a complete list of the offices go to www.roadtorecovery.info.

Spikes in overdoses haven’t been detected locally during the summer months. This latest increase further emphasizes the need for individuals who are living with addiction to seek treatment. Individuals who are living in recovery are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to speak with over the phone, by calling Northwestern Community Services’ Peer2Peer Regional Warm Line at 1-833-626-1490. Northwestern Community Services also has a Peer Recovery Center located at 1014 Amherst Street, Winchester. The Peer Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
