Car break-in suspects caught on camera

Falls police investigating the use of credit cards stolen from a vehicle were able to obtain images of the suspects from local stores.

A resident on the 1200 block of 95th Street told police that someone Monday night someone entered their unlocked car and took credit and debit cards, as well as a driver's license.

A check of the cards showed they had been used at a local department store and grocery store. Purchases were made in the amounts: $200, $293.91, $200 and $91.

Police went to both stores and have obtained surveillance footage of the suspects making the purchases as well as leaving the store and getting into a car.

An investigation is continuing.
