The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Department is asking the public’s aid in tracking down two suspects who are responsible for a rash of vehicle break-ins.
According to the sheriff’s department, two unknown suspects are wanted for breaking into vehicles, stealing credit cards and then using those cards to buy thousands of dollars in merchandise.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to two incidents of cars being broken into at the Avila Bay Athletic Club. Deputies say in each case, the suspects gained access to the vehicles and then stole credit cards out of the wallets left in the vehicle by their owners.
According to sheriffs, the suspects then used the credit cards to buy a $2,000 laptop computer and other items from the Mac Superstore in San Luis Obispo. The suspects also used the credit cards at the Target store in San Luis Obispo to buy more than $7,000 in gift cards.
If anyone has information, please contact the SLO Sheriff’s Department.
