Skimmer suspects dealing in illegal debit cards

January 3, 2019

Four suspects have allegedly used debit card information from a Katy senior citizen, racking up charges of more than $3,000.

According to Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap’s office, “Detectives believe the suspects used an illegal credit card skimmer to steal the victim’s digital information. On Nov. 10, they ran up several thousand dollars in charges and money orders at two Katy-area grocery stores using the victim’s stolen debit card information.”

Heap is asking for the public’s help identifying the suspects wanted for using the illegally obtained debit card information.

“The suspects were caught on surveillance cameras while using the fraudulent debit cards,” Heap reported on Facebook. “They are described as four light-skinned Hispanic males in their mid-20s to mid-30s. Several of them are wearing designer athletic clothing.”

If anyone recognizes these suspects or has any information that might help with the investigation of this crime, Heap asks them to call Investigator K. Fesperman at 281-463-6666 or make a tip at https://constablepct5.com/index.php/online-crime-tips.
