Police search for trio involved in credit card heist
BATON ROUGE - Police are looking for help to trackdown three suspects they claim made unauthorized transactions using a stolen credit card.
The incident happened on Black Friday. According to BRPD, the trio entered Poise'n Ivy Woman's Boutique in the 7200 block of Highland. Investigators say the two women distracted a worker while the male walked around the store. Another employee spotted him coming out of the break room.
Later that day, the worker who had been helping the two women realized her purse was missing. Authorities say the thieves used a credit card from the purse to buy $620.00 worth of merchandise from a local electronics store.
