Woman claims credit cards stolen at Cracker Barrel

By Evrod Cassimy – bio | email

CHESTER, VA (WWBT) – This past Saturday a woman says crooks sat next to her family at the Cracker Barrel on Redwater Creek Road and stole credit cards and racked up thousands of dollars in minutes.

Marsha Wiley says it all started at the Cracker Barrel Saturday night. She and her sister were enjoying a meal with family while someone went on a shopping spree with her sister's stolen credit cards. Wiley believes she saw the pick-pocketers in action.

"We were sitting at a table," said Wiley. "There were four adults and a child and the table behind us was vacant and a young couple walked up with their water, their menu in their hands and sat down."

Wiley says she noticed as the man scooted closer to a chair where her sister's purse was hanging.

"And he reached in her purse and pulled out her wallet," she said.

Unfortunately she didn't know what was happening until it was too late.

"We were getting ready to leave and she opened her wallet and noticed that two of the slots in her wallet were empty and she had a credit card and a debit card," said Wiley.

Both of those cards were gone. The crooks went on a shopping spree at a Best Buy nearby and rang up a bill of nearly $3,000. Marsha hopes her story will expose these crooks that are still on the loose. She, however, has no hard feelings.

"I feel sorry for them," said Wiley. "I feel sorry for someone that can do something like that to someone else."

A spokesperson for Cracker Barrel did not return our call today. However, a Best Buy employee confirms someone used a stolen credit card over the weekend at their store.

If you know anything about this incident, call Chesterfield Police.
