Stolen credit cards used in Boulder shopping spree

BOULDER, Colo. - Two women were photographed using stolen credit cards during a shopping spree in Boulder, after a man allegedly stole them from a woman in another store.

The victim said she was distracted around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 20 when a man bumped into her with his cart at the Whole Foods store at 2905 Pearl Street. According to Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel, the woman told police she put the purse in the seat of her cart and believes the man took her wallet from there.

The surveillance cameras at the Walmart, where the card were used a short time later, show two women using the stolen credit cards to buy several items and gift cards.

In addition to the Walmart, the stolen credit cards were used at an Apple store, Target, Gymboree, Sunglass Hut and Nordstrom Rack.

Clerks believe the two women were speaking Spanish, Kobel said, and described them as wearing "high end" clothing and carrying Gucci and Louis Vuitton handbags. One was described as white or Hispanic, between the ages of 26 and 30, with a slim build and brown or auburn hair pulled back from her face. The other was described as being between 30 and 35, slightly overweight and with straight, dark hair which was pulled back from her face.

The male suspect from the Whole Foods, of whom surveillance photos were not available, is described as Hispanic, early-to-mid-twenties, with short black hair, tall and stocky.

Police are asking anyone with information about these suspects to contact Detective Kristin Weisbach at 303-441-4474 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
