A Washington, D.C., man has been charged with grand larceny after police say he used stolen credit cards at a Williamsburg pharmacy.

Tony Donnel Butler, 26, has been charged with grand larceny and identity fraud after police say he used stolen credit cards at a CVS pharmacy in the 1600 block of Richmond Road on July 15, according to Williamsburg Police Department spokesman Maj. Greg Riley.

An employee of the store told officers a man in his 20s wearing a black short sleeved shirt, denim shorts, a bandanna and sunglasses bought items at the store with a stolen credit card, Riley said.

Officers later identified the Butler as a suspect in the case, according to Riley.

Officers obtained warrants charging Butler with grand larceny and identity fraud on Aug. 7, but have been able to serve him with the warrants as of 2 p.m. on Aug. 9, Riley said.

If you know the location of Butler, you can anonymously leave a tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
