NOPD searches for fast-acting credit card thief

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The NOPD is asking for the public's help in identifying and locating a man who tried to use two stolen credit cards.

The incident occurred Sunday at the Walgreens located at 2418 South Carrollton Avenue. Police say the suspect entered the store and tried to make purchases using two different credit cards.

When the transactions were declined by the credit card companies, the suspect left the store.

Detectives learned that the credit cards were reported stolen from a home in the 1400 block of Audubon Street about an hour before the suspect tried to use them.

The credit card incident was captured on the store's surveillance system.
