MADISON, Ala –  The Madison Police Department is asking for your help identifying two suspects in connection with a car break-in and use of stolen credit cards.

On December 9 Madison Police responded to a car break-in at the Madison YMCA. There were multiple credit cards reported stolen from the vehicle.

Hours later the cards showed up at the Apple Store in Bridge Street Town Centre.

Two suspects were caught on surveillance video buying thousands of dollar’s worth of electronics.

“The purchases were electronic items,” said Madison Police Department, Lt. Wayne Kamus. “I’m not exactly sure what type but they were used at more than one place. It was used at the Apple Store and the other place was used at Best Buy.”

The suspects are a male and female. According to Madison Police, the male is in his late 20’s early 30’s and he is about 5’8. The department is going off the woman’s picture as they are unsure of her details.

The department urges people to take time to make sure your belongings are secure in your vehicle, especially this time of year.

“It is not uncommon,” said Lt. Kamus. “That is one of the reasons why we ask individuals to take their valuables out of the vehicle, their purses, wallet’s things of that nature.”

Police also ask you to be alert and check your card statements regularly. Being aware could potentially save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

If you recognize the individuals in the pictures or have a tip on the case, contact Madison Police at (256) 722-7190.
