Greenville Police Searching For Credit Card Theft Suspect


By Amanda Wade

Greenville Police need your help identifying a woman who stole credit cards from a mother stopping for lunch with her family.

A mother who says she was just passing through Greenville on a family vacation. When she left the city, she realized her credit cards were missing from her purse. Greenville Police Investigator, Lt. Justin Lovvorn, says, "Somewhere in that process, her cards were taken out of her purse. They very quickly realized that there were charges being placed on those cards when they made a phone call to the credit card company and they quickly notified us."

The victim asked us not to reveal her name, but says, "I'm very cautious. So the fact that somebody could get in and out of my purse in such a short time with it so close to me is very scary."

She says the only place she and her family stopped was at Cracker Barrel on August 8th around 1pm. Investigators say the thieves used the credit cards at Greenville's Walgreens, Walmart, and then went up Interstate 65 to use the cards in Fort Deposit.

They believe the suspects attempted to charge more than $1,000 on the cards.

Lovvorn says he thinks the suspects live in the area, "light skinned, may have hair extensions in her hair at the time when the photos were taken of her this time, because it's sort of a brownish, it goes into a reddish color hair and it's fairly long."

If arrested, investigators say the suspect could face felony theft charges and a maximum of 15 years behind bars.
If you have any information, you are asked to call the Greenville Police Department at 334-382-7461.
