Crime Stoppers: Stolen Purse leads to Credit Card Fraud

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Bowling Green Police say a woman was shopping in an area grocery store and suddenly realized her purse was missing. The next day brought more unpleasant surprises.

Her credit card company called with five fraudulent charges totaling over $2,500. Fortunately, two of the stores were able to provide video surveillance of two suspects police believe you can help identify.

Both suspects are black males; one heavy set with a full beard, wearing a blue jacket with red sleeves, tan pants, and a dark shirt. The second man is wearing glasses, a dark colored fur-lined aviator hat, and a blue coat with two white stripes.
