87-Year-Old's Wallet Stolen, Credit Cards Used to Make $4,000 in Fraudulent Charges
The Oconee County, Ga. Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in identifying suspects and a car caught on surveillance video Sept. 5 at Walmart on Lowe's on Epps Bridge Parkway.
The Oconee County Sheriff's Office Wednesday evening released still images of two suspects -- a man and woman -- authorities believe may be connected to a case of theft and fraud.
The images were obtained from video surveillance along with images of a car with which the two individuals may have been associated.
Earlier in the day, an 87-year-old woman reported her wallet as stolen, according to Chief Deputy Lee Weems. The victim's credit cards were then used to make more than $4,000 worth of fraudulent charges at Walmart and Lowe's on Epps Bridge Parkway, he said.
Additional details about the case were not immediately available. Patch will provide updates as more information is released.
