Two Suspects Sought For Theft, Purchasing iPad In Missoula on Stolen Credit Cards
Missoula County authorities are attempting to track down the two men featured in the photo above as suspects in a local theft case.
“They used a stolen credit card to purchase an iPad,” said Missoula County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Paige Pavalone. “That credit card was stolen from a gentlemen who lives up at Seeley Lake; his wallet was stolen and the contents within that wallet, including multiple credit cards were stolen. Those credit cards that were stolen, well, it turns out that they were used over in the Spokane Valley as well, at various motels and gas stations. They were basically having a free-for-all with these credit cards unfortunately.”
Both the theft of the wallet and the spending spree appear to have started on Sunday, September 29. Pavalone says that it is still unclear how the wallet was stolen or how much money had been spent. The wallet may have been taken from the victims home.
According to Pavalone, the victim was able to contact the credit card companies and notify them that the expenditures were not done by him.
