SUBJECT: K.P.D. Searching for Suspect Who Went on Shopping Spree with Debit Card from Stolen Wallet
DATE: February 12, 2015
CASE #: 15-000928
On January 14, 2015 at approximately 6:00 PM, an employee of Best Buy, located at 2716 East Stone Drive in Kingsport, accidentally dropped her wallet in the parking lot of the business. By the time she realized it was missing, it had already been stolen.

Among the miscellaneous items in the wallet were a debit card and some cash. That same evening, the suspect used the debit card to go on a shopping spree, making two purchases at Murphy U.S.A. on West Stone Drive and additional purchases at Wal-Mart on West Stone Drive and McDonald’s in Church Hill.

After extensive review of area surveillance video footage, detectives have developed a white female suspect in this case. She was observed on video using the stolen debit card. She is pictured in the first two photographs included in this release. At the time of the offense, she was accompanied by the two white males in the third photograph, and they were traveling in a full-size light-colored pickup circled in the fourth photograph.

Anyone who can help detectives identify any of these individuals or who may have any information that may help detectives solve this case is asked to call the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
