Suspect Goes On $8,600 Shopping Spree With Stolen Credit Cards
WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS) – Westminster police would like the public’s help locating a suspect who they say stole credit cards from a 24-Hour Fitness and went on a shopping spree.
“Imagine your surprise to find out that your 1 hour of exercise at the gym cost you over $8,600 in credit card charges and years of dealing with your stolen identity,” Trevor Materasso with Westminster police said in a statement.
Materasso said it happened to two Westminster residents on March 17. Both were at the 24-Hour Fitness on 120th Avenue near Sheridan Boulevard when someone broke into their lockers and stole their credit cards.
Police believe the suspect filled out a guest membership pass and went to the men’s locker room looking for credit cards.
“In the span of an hour he visited two Best Buy stores and Target, racking up thousands on stolen credit cards,” Materasso said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Westminster police. Remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-STOP (7867).
