Criminals Use Stolen Credit Cards In Mid-State

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Police need help finding burglars who are not only breaking into homes, but stealing identities. The criminals used stolen credit cards at several locations. They were caught on tape in Madison and South Nashville. 

On Friday November 27 at 1:30 p.m. someone broke into a home in East Nashville. Several items were taken from the house in the 600 block of North 16th Street. The items included the victim's wallet.   

The victim discovered her credit cards had been used four times, the first time at a Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market in Madison. Wal-Mart security cameras captured two men together inside the store. One of them was using the card. 

"Probably mid-30s to 40s at the time he purchased some items, used the victim's credit card to purchase those items and shortly left the store," said Mark Woodfin with the Metro Nashville Police Department. 

Police are not sure if the person using the card is the same person who broke into the home in East Nashville. 

A second video taken from the Super Wal-Mart on Nolensville Road showed the same man using the victim's credit card, but this time he's with a heavy set woman wearing a pink top. 

They attempted to buy a home theater system, but for some reason they decided against it. 

"I'm not sure if the credit card didn't go through, but at that point they left the item on the counter and went to the front of the store where they purchased gift cards from the Wal-Mart store with the victim's credit card," said Woodfin. 

Police hope you can help them identify the man and the woman in these pictures. If you can help them call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. You can also text Crime Stoppers anonymously, text the word CASH and send your message to CRIMES.
