Police identify suspect connected to Walker credit card fraud
BATON ROUGE – Police in McComb, Miss. have identified one of the suspects who police say stole credit card information from a Walker man and made fraudulent purchases at a Mississippi Walmart.
Investigators identified Bradley J Boudreaux, 32, of Mamou, La., as the suspect shown in security footage wearing a camouflage baseball cap and black t-shirt.
McComb Police said that Boudreaux is wanted by Alexandria Louisiana Probation and Parole for other unknown charges.
Police have not identified the second suspect that was described as wearing a tan baseball cap, an olive short sleeve t-shirt and dark colored cargo pants.
Investigators said earlier this week that a Walker man discovered a series of suspicious transactions from the McComb Walmart in the amount of $210.88. Detectives say two separate purchases of $105.44 were made, with each purchasing "Go Phone Cards". A third purchase was attempted but denied.
Security camera footage showed two men swiping several credit cards to make the purchases at around 4 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13.
The victim from Walker said the credit card used in the transactions was always on his person when the fraudulent activity was carried out, and he doesn't know how the men obtained his card details.
Other victims are being contacted in regards to similar cases of credit card fraud carried out by the same subjects. Investigators are still working to contact those card holders at this time.
Anyone with information is urged to contact McComb PD's Detective Joshua Brown at (601) 684-3023.
