The Augusta County Sheriff's Office is asking for help from the public to find three women who stole over $10,000 worth of items from a Verona coin and jewelry shop.

According to Cpl. Aaron Will, three women walked into B&J Coins in Verona around noon on Thursday, July 19.

That's a coin dealer in the Food Lion shopping center off of Rt. 612.

The women, who store owners described as "either of Middle-Eastern or Russian descent," browsed for a little while, expressing interest in buying several items, like jewelry and gold coins.

However, after expressing interest in each item, they did not have enough money to complete the purchases.

While repeating this process, deputies believe the three worked together to confuse and distract store employees and, "through deceit and trickery," were able to leave the store with over $10,000 worth of merchandise.

No information on a suspect vehicle is available, but surveillance images of the three suspects are above.

If you know anything about this theft or who any of the three women may be, you're asked to contact Cpl. Will of the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office at 540-245-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 800-322-2017.
