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

The Soul Of Chattanooga Is In Trouble

As a child growing up in the Chattanooga area, at an early age I became fascinated with the history that cloaks the city. In those days there was enough pollution to cover the town and its history but that didn't stop tourists from coming to visit Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge and the Chickamauga battlefield.     Chattanooga's leadership was not very far sighted ...

Roy Exum: Writing From Bragg Avenue

Far and away, my favorite comment on destroying statues appeared on my Facebook page the other day and, believe it or not, it was the clear-minded Times Free Press Sports Editor Stephen Hargis who penned, “This statue offends me!
