– Gotcha!, Media General’s Richmond-based publication featuring arrest photos, crime news and wanted individuals, has expanded its reach into Central and Northern Virginia.
The Central Virginia Gotcha! launched October 1 and publishes weekly on Saturdays. This edition’s pages are lined with arrest photos from Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Danville and Roanoke. Gotcha! Central Virginia features wanted individuals from around the area, and the publication will help area law enforcement deter crime and catch suspects.
The Northern Virginia Gotcha! hit the stands on October 7 and publishes weekly on Fridays. The edition features individuals arrested in Manassas and the counties of Prince William, Fauquier, Stafford and Arlington. Area crime news and pictures and descriptions of people wanted by Northern Virginia law enforcement make Gotcha! Northern Virginia a valuable source of information for area residents.
Both editions are four color, feature advertising and can be purchased for $1 in convenience stores in many of the markets they cover. They are printed by Media General.
Gotcha! Richmond, published by Media General’s Richmond Media Group, remains a vital resource in its community. First published in February 2010, the magazine has helped area law enforcement capture more than 30 individuals. As two new editions of Gotcha! gain strength, the Richmond edition will continue in its role as a vehicle to help keep Richmond safer and more informed.
