‘Bank jugging’ strikes Virginia Beach VA, Wells Fargo

News Nation Now

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The nationwide criminal trend of bank jugging has hit home.

A recent case, in which suspects observe victims as they leave banks and then steal their money, took place in Virginia Beach late last month.

In that case, a Wells Fargo customer was swindled out of $33,000 in a Nov. 20 heist after having just withdrawn the money, Virginia Beach Police said.

That person was just one of the latest victims of jugging, which comes under a criminal charge of grand larceny. In the last year, it has also happened in Portsmouth.

NewsNation affiliate WAVY found a witness who watched a victim lose her money.
