[ARCHIVED] Police Seek Help in Identifying Suspect in Fraud Case

Credit Card Fraud Suspect

The Twin Falls Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a male individual who is suspected of credit card fraud.

On at least three occasions, a male individual who is about 6’ tall with medium build and dark hair that is cut short, used fraudulent credit cards to purchase items at local retailers. Police believe the suspect obtained card numbers from at least two citizens in Twin Falls, and then created duplicates that were used to make purchases in Twin Falls and Mountain Home.

It is not yet known how the suspect obtained the credit card information.

The fraudulent cards were used at Fred Meyer and Walmart in Twin Falls, as well as the Walmart in Mountain Home. In most cases, the suspect purchases items at one register with a fraudulent card, and then returns within minutes to purchase additional items at a different register with a different fraudulent card.

Purchases were made on April 4, 2015 and April 5, 2015. It is possible that someone in those Twin Falls or Mountain Home retailers may recognize the suspect in the surveillance photo. Anyone with information regarding the suspect is encouraged to call the Twin Falls Police Department at 208-735-4357.
