Two Suspects Wanted In Credit Card Fraud

Posted: Updated:

GALLATIN, Tenn. – Police have asked the public's help in identifying two suspects wanted in connection of credit card fraud.

Officials with the Gallatin Police Department said two suspects fraudulently used stolen credit cards at the Triple S Market, located on North Water Street in Gallatin on September 22.

"The credit cards were stolen ahead of time. They had these actual, physical credit cards in their possession at the time they committed this crime," said Officer Bill Storment from the Gallatin Police Department.

Investigators said the suspects entered the store and used the cards on multiple transactions. Their transactions totaled more than $300.

Police said a male suspect climbed onto the roof of the building and altered the satellite dish in order to use the stolen credit cards without being detected.

"Their alteration to the dish did not prevent the signal from going out, but it altered the signal coming in, so the clerk was not aware the credit cards were stolen," Storment said.

No one noticed the man on top of the gas station while he was altering to satellites. But there is surveillance video of the male suspect.

"When I checked the cameras, I see the guy, he was climbing up," said Janak Patel, manager of the Triple S store.

At the time, Patel had no idea I crime was taking place. But there were signs something was wrong.

"Why suddenly it's happened. Because weather was perfect, my lottery machine was down and the credit card machine from outside, was not working," Patel explained.

The male suspect was described as a 5 –foot-6-inch, man in his late 20s, weighing 135 pounds. The female suspect was also said to be in her late 20s.

Police said the suspects left the scene in a 1992-1996 model Red Pontiac Bonneville with honeycomb wheels.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Investigator Daniel Soto with the Gallatin Police Department at 615-452-1313.
