Police are searching for a man and woman who they say broke into a car at Casa Grande and went on a spending spree with the victim’s credit cards.
The victim discovered the break-in and theft, which occurred around 6 p.m. Sept. 14, after eating at the 905 Klumac Road restaurant, according to a Salisbury Police Department report.
Soon after the theft, police say, the suspects used four credit cards at a Salisbury Rushco convenience store, a Kannapolis Lowe’s Home Improvement store, a Concord Wal-Mart and several Harris Teeter and the Pantry stores in Charlotte.
The pair used the credit cards twice at Wal-Mart and five times in Charlotte, Salisbury Chief Deputy Steve Whitley said.
Whitley called the man and woman people of interest.
The suspects purchased about $3,000 worth of merchandise with the cards and some stolen cash, police said.
The two were captured on surveillance video inside Lowe’s. The video shows a black man, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 185 pounds, wearing a gray T-shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers.
The video also shows a white woman with brown hair pulled into a ponytail. She is wearing dark capri pants, flip flops and what appears to be a flowery shirt.
She is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and between 150 and 160 pounds.
Investigators think the suspects may live in the Charlotte or Concord area.
Investigators ask anyone with information to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.
