MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects who allegedly stole several credit cards from a locker at YMCA and ran up hundreds of dollars in charges on them.

The suspects in the photos provided by Myrtle Beach Police are wanted for questioning in connection with multiple credit card frauds at Target and Best Buy, according to a news release from MBPD.

"Even at home, if you're not using the cards try to store them in a safe," MBPD's Captain David Knipes said. "Anything that you can do to take that extra step to make things more difficult from them to get is going to protect you in the long run."

The victim told police that when he went to a locker with his belongings at the YMCA at 5000 Claire Chapin Epps Drive, he noticed there were scratches on the locker door, but it was locked, according to the police report.

"I've had a couple of instances where somebody would take something from a locker that's in there without being locked," said Matt Dempski, YMCA Chief Executive Officer. "I hate to say that but that's why we definitely need to make sure we lock the lockers behind 'em." 

The victim noticed his wallet was missing three credit cards when he got a call from a card company saying he had suspicious transactions on his card. The victim told police that one card had three separate charges at a nearby Target on February 26: one for $761.91, one for $652.91, and another for $794.61.

"It all depends on the store policy on how they check your identification," said Captain Knipes. "If they verify it. A lot of stores don't. They scan the card, they don't look at the I.D., unless you as the consumer put on the back of the credit card: 'See I.D.'"

The victim told police another card was charged at Best Buy for $326.99 while he was at the YMCA. The suspects were seen driving a silver car like the one in a picture provided by Myrtle Beach Police.

If either of these subjects is located, MBPD asks that you contact Det. J. Sutton at 843-918-1903.
