Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land police are looking for two men who went on a shopping spree with a credit card stolen from an elderly woman’s wallet.


The wallet was stolen at Walmart, 345 Highway 6, on Feb. 1.  A 70-year-old woman told police she was shopping in the store when a man asked her to try on a sweater to ensure it was a good fit for his wife.  She agreed and left her purse unattended in her cart while slipping the sweater over her clothes.


The woman was still in the store when she received a notification from her bank at 3 p.m. that a large purchase was made with her credit card in the same store. She looked in her purse, and the wallet was missing.


The stolen card was used to purchase several $200 gift cards and smaller items in the Sugar Land Walmart.  She was later alerted that her stolen card was used at another Walmart, 11242 South Gessner.


Surveillance video from the Walmart in Houston showed two men making a purchase with the woman’s stolen credit card. They were black men in their middle 30s to early 40s wearing baseball caps, jeans and white t-shirts.  One weighed about 220-240 pounds and had a visible photo in his wallet; the other was approximately 180 to 200 pounds with a noticeable tattoo on his hand.   


They drove away in a black, four-door Hyundai Genesis that was parked in a handicapped space.


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).
