ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell police are searching for two people they say stole a woman’s wallet and used her credit cards to buy over $10k in gift cards.

Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the two suspects, who were caught on surveillance cameras.


The suspects are believed to be driving a dark-colored SUV.

Police say that the suspects have done the same thing in other places.

Athens-Clarke County police reported two men stealing wallets from people at grocery stores there last week. They went to a nearby Sam’s Club in Snellville and used the victim’s credit card to buy $4,000 worth of gift cards. They used the same tactics at a Lawrenceville grocery store and at a Walmart in Columbia County earlier this month.

Those suspects were seen leaving the scene in a black minivan, possibly a Honda Odyssey, the Columbia County sheriff’s office said.

It’s unclear if the Roswell theft is related, though surveillance video from Athens-Clarke County shows men that appear to fit the same description.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective S. Thompson at 770-640-4344 or
