Sugar Land police seek man who used stolen cards

By Gianna Caserta - Reporter

SUGAR LAND, Texas - Sugar Land police officers need your help identifying a man who they say tried to use a stolen credit card at three stores in Houston.

The man may also be connected to car burglaries dating back to April.

Police say the credit card was among several items inside a purse that was taken from a woman's unlocked car in her driveway.

Officers say the victim put her purse in the back seat, and went inside for the night, but when she came back the next morning, her purse was gone.

"Fifteen minutes later, she got a notification from her bank that one of her cards that was inside her purse, was used at several stores in Houston," Sugar Land Police Department spokesman Doug Adolph said.

Surveillance video is from the Walmart at 111 Yale Street. Police say the man also hit up two CVS pharmacies but thankfully all three transactions were declined.

"He appears to be a pretty cool, character, appears he has done this before, just matter of fact, walks into the store like anyone else, attempts to use the card and it declines," Adolph said.

At one of the stores, police say the suspect is seen leaving in a small white sedan, possibly a Toyota Camry.

"We believe that the small white Toyota Camry has been involved in several other vehicles burglaries in our city dating back to April," Adolph said.

Now they are hoping someone recognizes him and turns him in, before anyone else becomes a victim.
