SAVANNAH, GA. (April 1, 2016): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Central Precinct investigators ask the public’s help in identifying the suspect who made multiple transactions with a credit card stolen during a March 29 auto break-in.
At about 9:54 a.m. the victim’s vehicle was parked on the 400 block of East 49th Street. Her purse was left inside of the car and visible from the vehicle’s exterior. A window was broken. The purse was taken.
An hour later the victim’s stolen credit card was used in a purchase at Walmart on Montgomery Cross Road. Within minutes, the card was used again for a purchase at Walmart on Highway 80. The fraudulent purchases totaled several thousand dollars. That day three additional transactions were attempted with the victim’s stolen card.

He stands about 5-10 and weighs roughly 150 – 170 pounds. During the incident he wore a black shirt and black shorts.
