UPDATE: The Murfreesboro Police Department is continuing their investigation into locating two to three individuals believed to be responsible for stealing credit cards and making large purchases at Sam's Club and Walmart.

Detectives need help in identifying the subjects that were captured on an in-store surveillance camera, which is why the photos were released to media.

Evidently, the individuals stole a wallet and first attempted to use one of the victim's credit cards at Sam's Club in late July.

The victim told police her wallet was stolen while she was shopping at Ross Dress for Less on North Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro.

A total of five transactions were attempted, which added up to about $10,000. The victim told authorities that the transactions were thankfully denied by her credit card company.

Do you Know the Names of the Subjects?

If you have any information about the individuals (photo above this story), please contact MPD Detective Ed Gorham at 629-201-5507 or email tips to crimetips@murfreesborotn.gov.
