At least two men are being sought in a series of vehicle break-ins and credit card fraud reports throughout the city as well as in Charlotte, Raleigh and Myrtle Beach, according to the Fayetteville Police Department.
On Aug. 10, a stolen Apple card was used at a Yadkin Road O’Reilly Auto Parts store, according to the news release.
As the men were leaving, employees took photos of the dark-colored Jeep Grand Cherokee the men were. Police said the Jeep bore a fraudulent Texas license plate, DV-73848. That same vehicle was then used in several other credit card frauds, according to police.
The other locations the cards were used were at Target, Lowe’s Home Improvement and Walmart on Skibo Road, Walmart on Cliffdale Road, Staples on Morganton Road and Carlie C’s on Reilly Road.
The vehicle burglary locations included Shady Knoll Lane, Kershaw Loop and Fountain Grove Circle.
One of the men is described by police as having a “crazy lazy eye.” The Jeep has dark tinted windows, a roof rack, chrome trim and chrome wheels.
