Pair allegedly burglarize car in church parking lot; use stolen credit cards to buy puppy

Posted: Updated:

Montgomery County Police say a pair of thieves broke into a car parked in a church lot and used stolen credit cards to buy a puppy.

The incident happened in August at St. Jane Frances de Chantel Catholic Church in Bethesda.

Officers say the break-in happened in the afternoon while the car’s owner was attending church. The thieves stole a purse from the car which contained several credit cards.

Within hours of the theft, the suspects had produced a fake Maryland driver’s license, purchased a three-month-old Yorkshire Terrier, and went on a shopping spree at Nordstrom’s.

In total, the suspects charged approximately $4,100 to the victim’s credit card.

Anyone with information about this case or suspects involved in this case is asked to call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or leave a Crime Solvers tip here. 

Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest and/or indictment for this crime.  Tipsters will remain anonymous.
