CASE #: 15-024699 (Roadrunner Market)

15-024701 (Wal-Mart)

On November 12, 2015 at approximately 10:00 PM a woman unknowingly dropped her debit card while at the Roadrunner Market, located at 120 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. The next day she realized her loss after learning that fraudulent purchases had been made utilizing the card.

A review of surveillance video at the Roadrunner Market showed a white male and a white female using the card to fraudulently purchase gas in the amount of $20.01 approximately twenty minutes after the card was dropped.

The same two suspects were also seen on surveillance video using the card less than an hour later at Wal-Mart, located at 2500 West Stone Drive, to fraudulently purchase merchandise in the amount of $135.65.

Photos of the suspects, taken from this footage, have been included in this release. Two clips from the actual video have been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the links below:

Anyone who can assist Detectives with their identification is asked to call the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
