Credit cards stolen, used at stores

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs the community’s help to solve a case in which a victim’s stolen credit card was used to make fraudulent purchases at two area stores after her purse was stolen from Cracker Barrel at 12401 Redwater Creek Road on Feb. 9.

The victim dined at the restaurant between 6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. and discovered her purse had been stolen. The victim then learned someone used her stolen credit card to make large purchases at the former Ukrop’s at 12601 Jefferson Davis Highway and Uppy’s at 2421 West Hundred Road.

Uppy’s surveillance video captured images of a woman who used the stolen card. The suspect is a white female, in her 40s to 50s, 5 feet 2 inches tall with long, brown hair. She drove a white four-door pickup truck. Photos of the suspect are available at
