CPSO Searching for Identity of Two Suspects Who Obtained Credit Card Info Via a Skimmer in Lake Charles
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office (CPSO) is searching for two suspects, a female, and male, in connection with the theft of credit card information from several victims in Lake Charles. According to a media release, CPSO received multiple complaints at the beginning of March regarding victims who had their credit card information stolen.
Detectives learned the credit card information may have been obtained through a skimmer at a gas pump somewhere in the Lake Charles area, which they were unsuccessful at locating. After further investigation, they have a female and male suspect in mind. The duo spent $3,000 using stolen credit card information to purchase gift cards at two grocery stores in Louisiana and Texas. Detectives were able to obtain video surveillance of the two suspects leaving the store. Check out the photos below and see if they look familiar.
If anyone has information regarding the suspects or the Toyota Corolla in the photos, contact CPSO lead Detectives John Coffman or Austin Peloquin at 337.491.7992, or call Crime Stoppers at 337.439.2222
