Deputies Seek Burglary, Credit Card Fraud Suspect

June 26, 2012

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying a woman that used a credit card stolen during a vehicle burglary.

The vehicle burglary happened May 18 in the parking lot of the Lowe’s on Highway 90 in Pace. The suspect stole the victim’s wallet, credit cards and an iPhone. The suspect then made purchases at a Raceway gas station on Pensacola Boulevard and a Shell Oil on W Street in Pensacola.

The suspect later attempted to use the victim’s debit card twice at Pen Air Credit Union in Pace, but the transactions were denied due to an improper PIN code.

The suspect’s vehicle was described as an older four-door car, unknown make or model.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (850) 437-STOP.

    @Kieth….I feel for ya buddy. My wife and I bought a house that one door was
    rigged not to lock. We didn’t know it and after we would come back from
    somewhere that door would be wide open. My wife and I had many a skirmish
    about who left the door unlocked. Then one day after a skirmish I started
    to look at the door and sure enough it was made just to look like the door
    locked. The Sheriffs office did SQUAT! Very disappointed with Deputy Dog
    guess they have more important fish to fry.

    If they took a iPhone why don’t they just GPS and track her down…There’s an app for that!

    Wow. Law enforcement actually goes after people for this crime.
    8 years ago I bought a van from my brother not knowing that one of the doors wouldn’t lock.

    We left my wifes purse and my wallet in between the seats where they couldn’t be seen and went into Winn Dixie on Mobile Hwy. We came out a short time later and drove to our next stop only to realize we had been robbed.

    We called the Credit card companies and our credit union in an effort to prevent this individual from doing to much damage.

    Within an hour he filled his vehicle with gas at Albertsons gas station on 9 mile.
    Attempted to make a cash withdrawal at an ATM on Pine Forest road.
    Bought a large TV at Walmart on Mobile Hwy.
    Bought a Stereo system at K-mart on 9 mile road.
    And for the next 2 days cashed personal checks at several Winn Dixies in the area.
    Finally the WD in Milton called us and questioned if we had been in the store trying to cash any checks. We said no. They gave us the punks description
    and we went to the ECSO to pass the info on.

    Everywhere this loser went he was on Security Cameras. Open and Shut case right? Wrong.

    ECSO said there was nothing they could do and we should let it be a lesson to us not to leave things like that in our vehicle. YES THEY SAID THAT.

    So we travel to the Milton PD and get told the same exact words.

    No effort what so ever to get this guy who could very easily have been Identified.

    The chances are 1/3333, but she had a wallet with birthday info and a lot of people use birthdays for pin numbers…just saying.. they got a good picture of her..should be easy to find her…

    >>.What are the chances that 4 numbers entered at random will be incorrect?

    You made me curious. Here’s what I came up with….

    There are 10,000 possible number combos of a 4 digit number using 0-9. But ATM machines usually allow three tries before they lock the account….so about 1/3333.
