Richland County authorities are asking for the public’s help identifying a man caught on surveillance using a credit card cloned from stolen information.
Investigators aren’t sure when the credit card information was stolen from the victim, but the purchase of $1400 worth of giftcards were made with a bogus credit card at two area retailers on January 2, 2016.
A gift card worth about $600 was bought at the Target at 10204 Two Notch Road, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release. Next, the suspect hit the Kohls down the street for a giftcard worth about $800, Lott said.
The man is described as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s, wearing a black hoody, black pants, and a gray hat.
