Going shopping with stolen credit cards found in unlocked car.
Dunwoody police said two teenagers may be responsible for as many as 19 car break-ins this month. They released a video of the two suspects using stolen credit cards at a Walmart in Ellenwood hoping someone can identify them.
They also released a video from a surveillance camera at one of the homes the thieves targeted. That video shows a suspect approach a car in the driveway; he tries the door handle on the car but then leaves because the car is locked.
That same teenager and another one were also on the video at Walmart where they purchased two Xboxes and some clothes with credit cards they had stolen from cars that were unlocked. The person in the video is wanted for questioning for eight incidents of auto break-ins in the area of Ellisbury Dr., E., Kings Point Cir., Sharon Valley Ct., Brookhurst Dr., and North Peachtree Rd in Dunwoody.
Both suspects are white men who appear to be in their late teens or early 20s and most likely lives in the area of the thefts, said Sgt. Mike Carlson in a press release. One has a buzz cut, while the other has bushy hair. They drove to the Walmart in a silver Ford Edge.
Police said auto break-ins are the easiest crime to prevent, and the one that gives them the most headaches. Police say the easiest way to keep criminals out of your car is to take valuables out or keep them out of sight but the simplest one is just locking your doors.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Detective Andrew Thompson with the Dunwoody Police Department at 678-382-6921.
