Theft in church parking lot leads to credit card fraud

Posted By on Thu, Jan 15, 2015 at 4:24 PM

Investigators seek the public’s help identifying the suspects behind an entering auto and theft outside an east Savannah church, and a subsequent case of credit card fraud.

The entering auto occurred Thursday Jan. 15, at about 9:30 a.m. in the Bible Baptist Church Daycare parking lot, on the 4700 block of Skidaway Road.

"Investigators believe one suspect broke the parked SUV’s windows after noticing a purse on the front passenger seat," a police spokesperson says.

"About 45 minutes later, several large purchases were made using one of the stolen credit cards at Target, on the 1900 block of Victory Drive. Additional attempts to use the cards were made at least two more Savannah businesses."

Target surveillance cameras show two suspects making the fraudulent purchases just after 10 a.m. Both are described as black females in their late teens to early 20s, standing about 5-6. During the incident they both wore loose fitting hooded jackets.

The entering auto suspect is described as a black male, with a medium brown complexion, in his early to mid-20s. He stands about 6-2 and weighs 175 pounds. During the crime, he wore a black hooded shirt and blue jeans. He was last seen running north on Skidaway Road towards LaRoche Avenue.
