Detectives are searching for a trio of suspects who used the same stolen credit card to make more than $600 worth of illegal purchases, according to San Diego County Crime Stoppers.
The illicit shopping spree started at the Wal-Mart store at 3412 College Way on Aug. 1. Around 1:30 p.m., a male suspect used the stolen card to buy $105.40 worth of products and asked the cashier for $100 in cash back, Crime Stoppers says.
Later that day, two different suspects – a man and a woman – used the same credit card at the same Wal-Mart to purchase merchandise worth $172.86 around 10 p.m. They also got $100 cash back.
Swiping the card a third time, the duo bought $153.79 in merchandise at the CVS Pharmacy located at 7100 Broadway in Lemon Grove.
The first suspect is described as a heavy set black man between 25 and 35 years old. Surveillance pictures show he was wearing a grey shirt that had “NAVY” written across it.
The female suspect in the second photo is described as a Hispanic woman between 20 and 25 years old. She wore a black shirt and dark pants.
The last accused burglar is a light-skinned black man between 18 and 25 years old, investigators say. He has a large afro-style haircut with a white spot on the right side, and he was wearing a grey sweatshirt and grey sweatpants at the time of the incidents.
