Fairfax County police have released the identity of a third suspect they say was involved in last year’s string of eyewear store robberies in Fairfax County.
County detectives charged, Arthina Cecilia Leake-Hall, 52, of the District, and Norlin Keith Washington, 43, of Accokeek, with roles in recent area area eyewear store robberies, Fairfax County Crime Solvers said. They were arrested in December.
Leake-Hall, Washington and Wilson are all suspected of multiple counts of grand larceny and larceny with the intent to sell, the release said.
The first reported eyewear store robbery was July 6 at Steiner Vision in Falls Church, where six pairs of Gucci eyewear were stolen, the release said. Another Falls Church eyewear store reported stolen Gucci merchandise the same day.
A Montgomery County police spokesman said his department is coordinating with Fairfax officials in the investigation of possibly related incidents in Maryland.
The incidents followed a pattern, officials said: two or three of the suspects would enter the store. One would distract an employee while another lifted the eyewear. In one case, the release said, a suspect took an expensive pair of eyeglasses and replaced it with a cheaper pair.
Fairfax County police describe Wilson as a black male standing 5 ft. 5 in. and weighing 130 pounds. Wilson also goes by the name “Linky,” according to police.
Fairfax County Crime Solvers is asking anyone with information to contact their tipline at 1-866-411-8477. They will offer a $100 to $1,000 cash reward for information that leads to his arrest.
