Crime Stoppers: Theft And Fraudulent Credit Card Use At Gunbarrel Target

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information regarding the theft and fraudulent use of credit cards at the Gunbarrel Road Target.

In this week’s case, the suspects pictured struck up a conversation with the victim while they were in line at a local Chick-fil-A.  After they left, the victim discovered that while one suspect distracted her, the other fished her wallet out of her purse along with her credit cards.

The victim immediately contacted her bank to report them stolen, and as she was doing so the bank informed her the cards were in use at the Target store just behind the restaurant. The victim went straight there and called police, but the two suspects had already charged nearly $3,100 dollars to her cards and left the store, but not without being caught on video.

The black male and female suspects were clean cut with polite demeanors. While they were both wearing coats and hats, they can still be clearly identified. 

Anyone who can identify the suspected thieves in these pictures, should call Crime Stoppers. A confidential call could result in a cash reward.

Call Crime Stoppers at 423 698-3333

Mark Twain once observed the difference in a cat and a lie is that a cat only has nine lives. You might remember that when you hear that a group of Tennessee Walking Horse trainers just donated two tons of horse feed “to aid and assist in the rehabilitation” of 55 horses that were rescued from deplorable conditions at a West Tennessee farm. The truth is that the horses were taken ... (click for more)

Both were overall winners in this unique 8K ... (click for more)

Golf and Chattanooga Have Lost Another Oehmig

  It was a classic Father’ Day golf picture. No, not Jack and Arnie and their kids relaxing at Augusta National with the Dogwoods blooming. But the Oehmig men – Lew, the family patriarch, with his youngest son, King, and his then two grade school age sons Henry and John, all crowded into, what else, a golf cart and donning that Oehmig glasses look – round, turtle shell-colored ...
