Elk Grove police are on the lookout for a suspect accused of using a credit card just after it had been stolen last week from a woman’s purse in the trunk of her car.
About 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 29, at least one suspect shattered a window of a victim’s car in a parking lot on the 3400 block of Laguna Boulevard, Elk Grove Police Department said in a Facebook post Tuesday. The suspect or suspects accessed the victim’s locked trunk and took her purse, which had her credit cards.
A male suspect was caught on surveillance video using one of the credit cards at a store in south Sacramento less than 30 minutes after the victim had parked her car, police said in the post.
The man is described as a Hispanic man, mid-20s to mid-30s, approximately 6-feet and 200 pounds. He was seen wearing a black Chicago Bulls No. 33 jersey, blue jeans and red shoes. He also wore clear glasses, the Facebook post said.
