Suspects caught on camera using stolen credit cards

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying at least two women involved in a car burglary in which credit cards and personal identification information were stolen.

The victim parked her car next to a friend’s house on Summerlin Road while they were unloading purchases from a trip to the store.  A few minutes later, the victim saw a dark four door sedan, occupied by two younger women wearing hooded sweaters.  One of the women quickly exited the car and reached into the victim’s unlocked car, where she removed a handbook that contained several credit cards and her driver license.

Within an hour, the suspects attempted to use one of the stolen debit cards at a Bank of America ATM on S. Cleveland Avenue.  Shortly thereafter, the suspects used a stolen card at the Walmart, located on S. Tamiami Trail in Estero.

Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the suspects are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestopppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
