Lynchburg Police say a woman whose description and surveillance photo were provided in an earlier news release is not a suspect in a Walmart theft, as police previously reported. Per their request, we have removed the photo and description they had provided. Police say the information and photo regarding the male suspect remain valid. The following is the amended news release:
