Police are looking for a credit card thief with a taste for high-tech electronics.
On May 14, 2008, someone broke into a man’s car at a gym at 3936 Shepherd in Houston, and took his Visa credit card.


The victim received a call from his bank informing him they saw fraudulent activity on his account. The thief used the card at three different Target stores to buy a Sony TV, a Blue Ray DVD, an Xbox game and computer equipment totaling $2,932.99.

The suspect was captured on surveillance video at the stores. He is a White male, approximately 25-30 years old, about 5’10” – 6′ tall, with a medium build above the waist and very skinny legs. He was wearing a white driving hat, sunglasses, a blue shirt with white stripes, and plaid knee-length shorts.

The Target stores were located at 2580 Shearn Street, 984 Gessner, and 6955 North Highway 6.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information called in to the 713-222-8477 tips hot line that leads to the identification, arrest and charging of any suspect in this case.
