The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs your help to catch a credit card fraud suspect.
On Thursday, Aug. 11, a man used a stolen credit card to purchase clothing from Macy’s at Southpark Mall in Colonial Heights. The same suspect tried to use the card to purchase electronics from the Walmart in Colonial Heights, but the purchase was declined because the card had been canceled. It was determined that multiple cards were stolen from vehicles in Hopewell and Petersburg that same day.
The suspect was described as a black male. In both cases, the suspect wore black shoes with white socks and a white and blue ball cap bearing the New Orleans Saints logo.
You may view photos of the suspect at crimesolvers.net. From the main page, select the Crime of the Week link.
