HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - The Hampton Police Division is asking for the public's help in identifying and locating those responsible in two fraud cases.
Cpl. Jason Price with the Hampton Police Division said a victim left her purse inside a store in Newport News around 9 a.m. June 13 and was later contacted by her bank in reference to suspicious purchases at a Target three hours later.
The suspect in that case is said to be a man standing 5'8" to 6' with a thin build. He has close cut hair and a tattoo on his left forearm. Price said the suspect was last seen driving a maroon Ford Ranger with an extended cab.
On June 21, several gift cards totaling more than $1,000 were purchased from the same Target store using a victim's stolen credit card information.
There is no suspect information for the second case.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hampton Police Division at 757-727-6111 or the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
