NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Detectives Investigating Case of Credit/Debit Card Fraud
DATE: May 29, 2020
CASE #: 20-006811
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On March 23, 2020 a Northeast Tennessee resident reported noticing multiple fraudulent charges that had been placed on her credit/debit card account. At least one of these charges was made the previous day at Kroger, located at 1664 East Stone Drive in Kingsport.

At the time this incident occurred, the original physical credit/debit card was still in the victim’s possession, so this is believed to more than likely involve the use of an unlawfully cloned card.

A review of surveillance video revealed footage of a white male suspect responsible for making the fraudulent transaction. A photo of this suspect is included in this release. A clip from the actual footage has also been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the link below:

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:
