Stolen credit cards used all over the Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - A woman did not report her purse missing for two days and thieves rack up the bills.

Police said the suspects hit gas stations, super markets and other stores throughout the Tri-Cities.

Police report that the stolen goods total almost 500 bucks.

The victim thought her purse might have been lost but was not sure so she did not cancel her credit cards.

Police said it is vital to notify your credit card company if you can not find your cards.  

Pasco Police Officer Joe Nunez said, "Immediately you need to cancel those credit cards because if you don't contact the credit card company as we saw today the suspects will immediately start using those credit cards as fast as they can."
