Hilltop Mall, rebranded to the Shops at Hilltop, is located at 2200 Hilltop Mall Road.

Richmond police are searching for three suspects who stole 55 pieces of merchandise valued at $1,600 from a Hilltop Mall shoe store Saturday.

The incident occurred at 7:44 p.m. in the mall in the 2100 block of Hilltop Mall Road, Richmond police Capt. Al Walle said. The suspects were immediately recognized as they walked into the shoe stores as repeat offenders and told to leave, Walle said. Before leaving, the suspects ransacked the store and fled with the stolen merchandise despite efforts by clerks to detain them.

One of the suspects was described as a black male about 18-19 years old, 6-feet-0, 170  pounds with a slim build, neck tattoo, wearing a long sleeve black shirt, red shorts, and black shoes. The second suspect was described as a younger black male, 17 to 18 years old, standing 6-feet-2, 180 pounds with aslim build, dental braces, wearing a white shirt, blue jeans, and red shoes. The third suspect was described as a black female, 18-24, 5-feet-3, about 200 pounds with long black hair, wearing a black jacket and grey sweats.


  1. For some of y’all folks, this stuff might phase ya
    This ain’t the way the society raised ya
    But most of it was made by children in Asia
    The stores make money off of very low wages
    The next time you see two women running out the Gap
    With arms full of clothes still strapped to the rack
    Once they jump in the car, hit the gas and scat
    If you have to say something, just stand and clap
    I love them boosters, they love them boosters
    You should love them too, even if they don’t know ya
    They’ll get it for ya like a whole outfit or shoe
    This goes to all them hard working women
    Who risk jail-time just to make them a living
    We know there’d probably be no one in prison
    If rights to food, clothes, and shelter were given

  2. Stand and clap for people who steal? No thanks. This is not representative of what Richmond is meant to be. In fact this is exactly what we are trying to change. There are opportunities, in fact quite a few to get jobs and earn a honest living. The city has even promoted several programs to help youth and others whom are in need of education and job placement. Move along now.
