SAVANNAH, GA (February 2, 2017): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s West Chatham Precinct detectives ask the public’s help in identifying a man and woman suspected of stealing a victim’s identity, opening a fraudulent credit card account in the victim name and making purchases at a retail store in January.
On Friday, Jan. 13, the victim’s wallet was reportedly stolen during an auto break-in. This was reported to SCMPD on Jan. 24 when the victim received a credit card in the mail for an account they did not open. Investigators later learned the suspects opened the account on the same day the victim’s wallet was stolen.
SCMPD obtained surveillance footage of the suspects and believe they may have ties to Effingham County.
One suspect is described as a white female in her early to mid-20s, standing about 5-6 to 5-8 and weighing about 125 pounds. She has long brown hair. During the incident she wore a black shirt and dark blue ripped jeans. The second suspect is a white male in his late 20s, standing 5-10 to 6-0 and weighing about 180 to 190 pounds. He is bald or partially bald. During the incident he wore a plaid button-up shirt and dark pants.
Anyone with information on this case should contact the SCMPD tip line by dialing (912) 525-3124.
Information may also be forwarded to CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
