Southlake Police Advisory: SLPD Asking for Information on Identity Theft/Fraud Suspects

The Southlake Police Department is asking for your help in identifying several suspects wanted for identify fraud and identity theft.

On December 22, 2015 the victim reported that her wallet, containing several credit cards, was taken while she was shopping at the Costco store in Southlake. She told detectives that a male approached her while she was shopping and tried to communicate with her in a different language. Soon after he approached her, a woman came forward, apologized for the inconvenience and walked away with the man. As the victim went to pay for her items she realized that her wallet had been taken.

On December 29, 2015 the victim returned to the Southlake Police Department to report that $30,000 in charges had been made with her stolen credit cards at Target stores in Grapevine and Euless.

Surveillance video (snap shots shown below) from the stores showed a male and an older female as well as a younger female. The older male is described as a white male in his fifties, approximately five-foot-six inches tall, medium build, with brown hair. He is seen wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans.

The older female is described as being in her late fifties or early sixties. Approximately five-feet-four inches to five-feet-six inches tall, with a medium build and short red or brown hair.

After reviewing time-stamped receipts, along with the surveillance video, it was determined that the younger female, wearing the leopard print shirt, is possibly working with the pair.

If you can identify any of these suspects or have information to pass along to police, please contact Detective Chris Melton at (817) 748-8129 or by email cmelton@ci.southlake.tx.us.

This individuals pictured below are are seen in various surveillance videos at different times and different days.
