NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Detectives Investigating Fraudulent Use of Stolen Company Credit Card at Both Kingsport Lowe’s Stores
DATE: October 4, 2018
CASE #: 18-024039 (Lowe’s East Stone Drive)

18-024040 (Lowe’s West Stone Drive)

GENERAL NARRATIVE
On August 20, 2018 a representative of a local business filed a report with the Kingsport Police Department regarding fraudulent charges placed on a company credit card that had been stolen out of a company vehicle while it was in Johnson City. While the auto burglary occurred and was reported to law enforcement in that jurisdiction, some of the charges occurred at the two Lowe’s stores in the City of Kingsport.

Most of these charges occurred on July 4, 2018 when $816.59 was charged at the Lowe’s on East Stone Drive, and $859.02 and $506.59 were charged at the Lowe’s on West Stone Drive. An additional charge was made on July 7, 2018 at the West Stone Drive store for the amount of $797.87. Another charge was allegedly made using the card at a Bristol (TN) Lowe’s store and is being investigated by law enforcement in that jurisdiction.

Images of what appears to be two separate suspects involved in these crimes were located on surveillance video footage. Photos take from that footage have been included in this release. Anyone who recognizes either of these individuals is asked to contact Detectives in 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:
