Kentucky State Police track down credit card thief

“While working a credit card theft/fraudulent use of a credit card case, I hit a snag in identifying the unknown male subject who had been using the cards. All I had to identify the male suspect was a date of birth, which was given when the suspected used the debit card to purchase a large quantity of cigarettes at a business. I entered this date of birth into LeadsOnline and found only three subjects who have sold items with that date of birth. After checking these subjects through our driver’s license database, I found only one subject that matched the description of the suspect that had been fraudulently using the debit cards. I ended up going to his residence and found all of the debit cards and ID’s that were stolen, along with several pieces of merchandise within his home that were purchased with the stolen debit cards. Charges are still pending in this case.”
