Police are asking for the public’s help to identify two women who allegedly racked up $8,500 in charges on three stolen credit cards in a total of 8 minutes at the Target store in Rockville.
Police released photos and a video Thursday of the two women inside the Target at 5700 Bou Avenue.
The credit cards belonged to a 39-year-old woman who said she discovered her wallet was missing when she received multiple calls and text messages from her credit card companies while eating dinner at a restaurant on Dec. 5, according to police. The thieves reportedly charged $4,000 to a Visa card, $4,000 to an American Express card and $530.05 to a MasterCard.
Detectives are investigating whether the woman’s wallet was lost or stolen.
Police said the two women were caught on surveillance video entering Target around 7:20 p.m., approaching the check-out at 7:24 p.m. and then leaving the store at 7:28 p.m. The women used the credit cards to purchase gift cards, according to police.
Anyone who recognizes the women are asked to call police at 240-773-6338. Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest of suspects in the case.
