Georgia Credit Card Thief Bought Electronics, Caught Trying to Buy Subway Sandwiches

Police in Georgia were on the hunt Wednesday for a man they said broke into a woman’s car, took her credit cards, and then used them to purchase electronics before getting caught when he tried to buy a sandwich.

The theft happened in Duluth, just outside Atlanta, on Jan. 3, with Gwinnett County Police Department sharing details on Wednesday morning, alongside a video of the suspect trying to use the victim’s card at a Subway.

While the woman was at work, the suspect broke into her vehicle on Commerce Ave and took her wallet containing multiple credit cards, the department said.

A short time later, those cards were used at a nearby Walmart. First, he purchased “multiple high-end electronics” before heading to the Subway inside the supermarket.

“The victim received a text notification from her banking institution alerting her to one of the transactions at a Subway located inside Walmart,” the police department said. “The victim called the business and spoke with a Subway employee while the suspect tried using the victim’s credit card to purchase food.”

The employee confronted the man, who then fled on foot. He was described as a black male aged between 18 and 25, wearing tied-up dreadlocks blue jeans, and a blue “Kool-Aid” sweatshirt.

Anyone with information was asked to call GCPD detectives on 770-513-5300. Anonymous tipsters could also contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477 or www.stopcrimeATL.com.
