The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs help to solve a case in which a victim’s stolen credit cards were used to make fraudulent purchases.
The victim’s wallet was stolen from her purse while she shopped at Food Lion at 11102 Hull Street Road at about 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 7. The victim later discovered her stolen credit cards had been used to make more than $370 in purchases at the following Virginia stores:
- CVS Pharmacy, 912 East Atlantic Street, South Hill
- Kangaroo Express gas station, 891 Temple Avenue, Colonial Heights
- Hancock Service Station, 5610 Hopkins Road, Chesterfield
- Walgreens at 20 Buford Road, Chesterfield
Walgreens’ surveillance video captured images of a woman who used the victim's stolen card to make purchases. The suspect is a black female, about 5 feet 3 inches tall, 220 pounds and medium-length black hair pulled into a ponytail. She wore a white, short-sleeve T-shirt with the letters “SP” on the front. She walked with a cane and a pronounced limp. Photos of the suspect can be viewed at crimesolvers.net.
