Enstrom’s video films credit card thieves

Mesa County Sheriff’s Department investigators are looking for a man and a woman caught on tape at several Grand Junction locations using a combination credit/debit card.

The card likely was taken from an unlocked car in an unlocked garage in the 400 block
of Cottonwood Lake Drive in Clifton sometime between February and May. Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Heather Benjamin said the victim doesn’t likely use the card often, which explains the lengthy time period when the card may have been taken.

Benjamin said the pair were caught on store cameras at various locations. The man, although he changes shirts between store visits, favors shirts with horizontal stripes and has short dark hair. The woman has long dark hair and constantly plays with her sunglasses as they sit atop her head. Both suspects are probably in their late teens or 20s.

The couple made about a dozen purchases at Wal-Mart, Enstrom Candies, McDonald’s, City Market and gas stations with the stolen card. The purchases total about $1,500 and started showing up on bank transcripts May 2. Benjamin said small, everyday purchases are common practice for credit card thieves.

“This is pretty standard. They just go and they buy stuff,” she said.

Anyone with information about the suspects or the stolen card is encouraged to call sheriff’s investigators at 244-3972 or e-mail investigators through the “Help Solve a Crime” link at http://www.sheriff.mesacounty.us.
