Detectives look to ID man making purchases with cloned credit card
BATON ROUGE - Detectives are looking to identify a man seen using a cloned credit card to make purchases at several stores in Baton Rouge and Denham Springs.
The victim told investigators his credit card information was fraudulently used to make purchases at two locations in Baton Rouge and one location in Denham Springs. The victim told detectives he was still in possession of the credit card while the transactions were occurring.
The transactions made in Baton Rouge took place at the O’Neal Lane Wal-Mart and Target on Millerville Road. Video surveillance footage was obtained by investigators from the Wal-Mart on O’Neal Lane, and a still image was obtained from the video.
Deputies describe the suspect as a white male with a thin build, wearing a dark-colored button up short sleeved shirt, white or gray shorts and black slip-on shoes. He has a large tattoo on the side of his right calf and on his left arm from the wrist to mid-forearm. Detectives said he was with a woman of medium build, wearing a white tank-top and multi-colored leggings while using the cloned credit card.
Anyone with information concerning the incident or the identity of the suspect is urged to contact the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office at (225) 389-5000.
