Two women steal credit cards, go on shopping spree


Crime Solvers is searching for a pair of thieves who went on massive shopping sprees with stolen credit cards.

The thieves first took credit cards from a woman who left her purse in her vehicle while parked at the ACAC Fitness Center on Robious Road between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on July 31. Later that evening, they spent more than $4,200 at the Best Buy in Short Pump and the Best Buy on Brook Road, including two Cannon EOS cameras.

The same pair snatched a wallet from another car around 6 p.m. the same day at the Water Tower Shopping Center on Iron Bridge Road. This time they bought $3,000 worth of electronics from the Target at and Best Buy on Southpark Boulevard, including another Canon EOS camera and an iPad.

They continued to spend an additional $2,200 at the Best Buy Midlothian and on a gasoline purchase in Toano, near Williamsburg.

Police describe the first suspect as a dark-complexioned black female in her late teens or early 20s with a rounded face with long, straight black hair. The second was a medium complexioned black female in her 20s with braces on her teeth and curly hair pulled back into a hat.
