CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Chesterfield Police are looking for two men accused of using other people’s credit card information to go on a shopping spree.
One suspect used eight different credit cards at the Walmart in Hancock Village Shopping Center on April 15, according to police. Each card was rejected.
A ninth card he tried was accepted, police said.
At the same time, a second suspect tried to use four credit cards before a fifth card was accepted.
“The thieves were quick, because before the cards could be cancelled, the same suspects made purchases from the GameStop in the same shopping center,” Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers said. “During interviews with the victims, it was learned they did not lose possession of their credit cards, yet their accounts were programmed onto the cards used by the suspects.”
Police described the suspect as white males. They were seen in a light-colored sedan leaving the shopping center.
Authorities suggested you pay close attention to activity on your credit card and bank accounts and call police if anything seems suspicious.
Anyone with information about the suspects or the crimes is asked to call Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
