You can see the suspect at 5:56 and 7:02 (this is a quick clip, but it shows the suspect’s face)

Suspect: W/M, 21-30 years old, 5’08-5’10, 175 to 200 pounds, thin beard, short hair (thin or missing patch of hair in the back)

Between February 23 and February 25, 2011, the suspect used the victim’s stolen credit card and made over $12,000 in purchases. The suspect bought computers, video games and electronics over the two day period. The suspect also made cash advances at ATMs with the credit card information.

The victim has her credit card. Detectives are unsure how the suspect obtained the credit card information. The suspect may have “skimmed” the credit card information without the victim knowing. Skimming is the theft of credit card information used in an otherwise legitimate transaction. Criminals take the credit card information and often make cards with the stolen information.
