Police looking for pair of larceny suspects

The Asheville Police Department is seeking two individuals suspected in stealing a number of items — including chainsaws and portable TVs — from area businesses.

“The two are being sought for stealing two chainsaws from Northern Tool & Equipment on Patton Avenue on July 19, and three portable TVs from a Hendersonville Road Blockbuster Video store on July 20,” the announcement from the APD reads. “Also on July 20, the suspects shoplifted some items from a CVS store on River Ridge Drive.”

The suspects are a white female, 18-25 years old, with red or brown hair and a white male, 25-30 years old between 6’ and 6’4” with brown hair.

“They may be driving a silver Honda Passport or a silver Isuzu Rodeo bearing a Tennessee license tag: RFF-422 or a North Carolina tag: PIM-184,” the APD announcement notes. Anyone with knowledge of their whereabouts can call the APD at 252-1110 or Crime Stoppers at 255-5050.
