NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Detectives Working to Identify Cloned Debit Card Fraud Suspects
DATE: August 28, 2019
CASE #: 19-015591
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On July 9 and 10, 2019 four $75 gift cards ($300 total) were fraudulently purchased at Walmart, located at 3200 Fort Henry Drive in Kingsport, using a woman’s debit card account. K.P.D. Detectives believe that the suspects used a clone of her card, because her original card remained in her possession.

Two white male suspects were captured on surveillance video during the commission of one of the fraudulent purchases, and photos taken from that footage have been included in this release. Two clips of the actual footage have also been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the links below:

Anyone who recognizes either of them 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:
