SOLON, Ohio — Police are trying to find the suspects accused of stealing a credit card and using it to buy gift cards.

According to Solon police, a male and a female entered the Pier 1 Imports store in Solon on Aug. 23. The female distracted a store employee, while the male took a credit card from the employee’s purse in a back room, according to police.

The two then left the store.

About 15 minutes later, the suspects went to a Lowe’s in Bedford Heights. There, they browsed the gift cards, according to police, and used the stolen credit card to make their purchase.

The suspects also later went to area Wal-Mart stores and again bought gift cards, which were used by several individuals to buy other items.

Most of their purchases were caught on surveillance cameras.

Anyone with information on the suspects or the thefts is asked to call Solon police.
