Sugar Land police are looking for two people who used fraudulent credit cards to purchase more than $20,000 worth of merchandise at Sam's Club stores in the region.

Detectives believe mail stolen during February and April from at least four residential mailboxes in Sugar Land was used to order credits cards. A man and a woman used the fraudulent cards to purchase a Sam's Club membership and merchandise that included electronics, groceries and gift cards.

Two suspects were identified from surveillance video inside the stores, and a suspect vehicle was seen on cameras at one of the homes targeted by the thieves in the Sugar Creek subdivision.
 
The man was black, 25-35 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed approximately 175-200 pounds.
 
The woman was black, 25-35 years old, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed about 120 to 140 pounds. The vehicle appears to be a grey or silver 2015-2017 Nissan Rogue.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at (281) 275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477).

Makes me wonder... how come the credit card company doesn't securely activate the credit cards themselves?

@SugarLandDotCom : I hope both of these individuals are caught by SLPD. I wonder how they got hold of these credit cards from these residents mailboxes. That's frightening. I thought the cardholder has to activate the card and answer security questions before making purchases.

$ 20000? Ouch...That's a lot of money. Hope they are busted soon with all those camera images. I wonder if their is facial recognition technology to catch such frauds and help our SLPD!

The problem is that the punishments are so weak, criminals are not afraid to commit crimes! I'll leave it at that

They are showing their "Pride"
Two more fine role models from the community. Things never change.
