SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office needs help to identify a couple who they say stole a debit/credit card and made multiple purchases in the Salisbury area.

Earlier this month, Rowan detectives began investigating a series of fraudulent transactions that occurred throughout October, November and December 2018. Throughout the course of the investigation, detectives discovered a male and female who have bought items at the Rowan County Flea Market, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Lowe’s, several Food Lion grocery stores and several local gas stations.

Detectives obtained photos from security cameras from the Lowe’s in Salisbury. Both suspects have frequented Salisbury since October 2018. They were last seen operating a black Kia passenger car.

Anyone with information about these suspects is asked to contact Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687, Detective C.K. Youngo at 704-216-8683, or Salisbury Rowan Crime Stoppers via 1-866-639-5245.
