RICHMOND, Va. - Police are searching for a "person of interest" after several thefts at the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Capitol Police said 30-year-old Ameenah Kadija Franks is wanted for her involvement in multiple larcenies at VDOT's Richmond headquarters.

"Franks is also a Person of Interest in multiple larcenies from multiple buildings during her frequent travels from Maryland to localities throughout Virginia," Capt. Randall E. Howard wrote in a news release.
