COLONIAL HEIGHTS The Colonial Heights Animal Shelter is seeking help to identify a woman who they say dropped off five full fish tanks at the shelter on March 31.

Security cameras captured footage of the woman at the location at 301 Charles Dimmock Parkway.

Shelter officials say she also punched a dog that was in her vehicle. The vehicle appears to be a newer model Ford Explorer silver or grey in color. The person appears to be a black female, 25-35 years old. Her hair is braided in rows. The dog in the video is a German shepherd.

The fish are alive and have been taken in by an experienced fish person.
