Although this crime occurred back on January 6th, 2012, we are asking for the public’s help in identifying the subjects pictured below.
Overland Park officers were contacted by a victim who stated someone stole her wallet out of her purse while she was shopping at a local grocery store. The victim told police the suspect asked for her help to locate some food items near the frozen food section. When the victim went to pay for her groceries, she noticed her wallet was missing. The credit cards were then used on the same day to purchase goods at three different retail stores in the metro area. The amount of the fraud purchases exceeds $3,500.00.
Surveillance photos from one retail store depict two persons using the victim’s credit cards. (See photos below)
