Theft mars Black Friday
A Black Friday shopping spree in Martin was had at the expense of a Fancy Farm woman last week when she discovered her credit cards and checkbook were stolen. Martin Police investigators are working to solve the case that involved more than $3,500 in merchandise that was fraudulently charged. According to an incident report issued by the department, two credit cards and a checkbook were used to make purchases at Martin Super Wal-Mart as well as Hibbett Sports. The report states the victim’s Bank of America credit card was used four times at Wal-Mart in Martin that day in the amounts of $316.92, $600, $365.99 and $765.59. Her Citi Advantage credit card was also used to make a Black Friday purchase from the store in the amount of $257.56. Two forged checks in the amounts of $325.70 and $361.89 were also written at Wal-Mart. The two perpetrators did not end their shopping spree there as they later went to Hibbett Sports in the University Plaza Shopping Center and spent a combined total of $555.21. After photographs were taken from Wal-Mart’s surveillance system, employees at Hibbett’s identified two suspects. They are described as two black females wearing scrub tops and driving a black Chevy Tahoe. One is approximately 36 years old with medium complexion and brown hair weighing 180 pounds. The second female is described as having a light complexion with long blonde hair. She is approximately five feet and three inches tall weighing around 110 pounds. She also reportedly has tattoos on her neck and wrists. The perpetrators also attempted to pass a check at the Union City Super Wal-Mart and apparently made fraudulent credit card purchases at the Fulton, Ky. Wal-Mart, according to the report. The total dollar amount of false purchases is $3,548.86. The incidents are still under investigation. If anyone has any information regarding the thefts and shopping spree purchases, call Crime Stoppers at 587-2611. Tips will remain anonymous. 12.04.08
