It's July 14th at the Leach Center on Florida State's Campus. The unsuspecting victims stuff their belongings into their gym locker. Little do they know a thief is lurking nearby.

Kathy McGhin, a Crime Stoppers spokesperson, said, "When the lockers were broken into the credit cards were removed."

Not once, but twice, the same suspect swiped credit cards from students as they worked out. He then used his new cards to fill his buggy at Target. If you can help solve the crime you can reap the rewards.

And it doesn't stop there. Another crime stoppers puts the spotlight on another credit card thief.

McGhin said, "The victim's vehicle was parked at the 1500 block of Apalachee Pkwy. When it was burglarized. The suspects then took credit cards from the victim's car."

The suspect makes his way to the nearest pharmacy, a Walgreens down the road. Police say he bought several gift cards using his stolen credit card.

If you recognize these suspects or know about these crimes please pick up the phone and call Crime Stoppers. That number is 850-574-TIPS.
