Spokane Police want to warn regional retailers about several suspects who are in the area purchasing Go-Pro cameras with fraudulent credit cards. These suspects have made at least one purchase and attempted a second purchase in Spokane in the last several weeks.
The Spokane Police Department has received two reports of several subjects (pictured) using fraudulent credit cards and identification to purchase Go-Pro cameras. Other law enforcement agencies in the area have been made aware of this activity and are working to identify the individuals involved.
The first report was made on 06/10/2015, just before 1:00 p.m., by Wheel Sport in the 1700 block of N. Division. During this incident, the dark haired male and blonde female in the attached pictures, used a stolen credit card to purchase two Go-Pro cameras for a total of $978.
The second report was made on 06/23/2015, just after 4:00 p.m., by Sportsman's Warehouse in the 6700 block of N. Division. In this incident, the dark haired female suspect in the attached pictures, attempted to use two different stolen credit cards to purchase 6 Go-Pro cameras totaling $2699. The employee had been made aware of this scam by other Sportsman's Warehouse locations in Oregon that had been targeted by these individuals and stopped the transaction.
The suspects are believed to be driving a newer black Chevy Tahoe and white Chevy Traverse, both with California plates. Anyone who may have been victimized by these individuals or with information on who these suspects are is asked to call Crime Check at 509.456.2233.
