EDMOND — Police said they need the public’s help in identifying four individuals who allegedly attempted to use credit cards stolen during an auto burglary in Edmond.

Jenny Monroe, spokeswoman for the Edmond Police Department, said all of the suspects are white males and white females. The two couples arrived in separate cars at the Moore Walmart at the same time, Monroe said. One of the vehicles involved appears to be a white four-door Dodge Intrepid and the other a small beige or gold colored four-door sedan of some type, she said.

Only one suspect (plaid shirt) has distinguished features, Monroe said. He appears to have tattoos across his neck on the left side, Monroe said. The two females (blonde in a red jacket and brunette/red hair in a gray hoodie) took turns using one of the stolen cards to make purchases of $172.76 and $237.45, she said.

The two males (black jacket and plaid shirt/jacket) tried using another stolen credit six times at the store but were denied because the victim had already canceled the card, Monroe said.

On Feb. 4, Edmond Police Officer Rickey Ecker responded to a home on Whipporwill Court, where he spoke with the victim, according to an incident report filed by Ecker.

The victim said someone broke out the rear passenger side window of her vehicle, which had been locked and was parked in the driveway, and took her purse and its contents, Ecker stated.

About 5:30 a.m., she heard a noise and when she looked outside she noticed a car driving away from the area, but she did not know if it was involved in the burglary, Ecker stated.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Edmond Police Department detectives’ number: 359-4446. | 341-2121, ext. 108
