SUFFOLK - Credit card numbers stolen from out-of-state residents were used in Suffolk to buy cigarettes and an iPad.

Police say a man bought an iPad at Walmart on College Drive on February 27 using the account of a woman from Alaska.

Surveillance camera images show him in the store wearing a vest and hat.

On March 9, a credit card belonging to a New York resident was used for three cartons of Newports at the Wilco on Holland Road.

The same number was used about an hour later at a BP station in Franklin.

The suspects in each case were driving a light colored crossover-type vehicle and had distinctive Jamaican accents, according to police.

'Neither (victim) had been in Suffolk nor were their cards lost. It appears their account numbers were placed on fraudulent cards,' explained City of Suffolk spokeswoman Debbie George.

If you know anything about either of these fraud cases, call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
