GREENVILLE, S.C. -

Greenville Police are looking for two people they believe are responsible for using a stolen credit card.

Shane Manning told officers her wallet was stolen while she was at Panera Bread on Woodruff Road on July 9.

“I got home around 10 p.m. and there was a voicemail from Wells Fargo saying there was a fraud detection on my account,” Manning recalls.

Manning says a charge for $212 was made at Target, less than a mile down the road from the restaurant

“I was so involved with chatting with my friends I never saw anything,” Manning said.

GPD investigators released two photos of the suspects Monday.

They hope the public can help in what they say was financial transaction fraud and larceny.

“Nine times out of 10 they are going to be recognized by somebody,” said Johnathan Bragg, GPD spokesman.

Police in Greer are still investigating two similar incidents from May.  Investigators are working with authorities in other states, but say this most recent crime may be connected to previous cases.

“You don't think that anybody is going to get your wallet right out of your purse,” says Manning.

As manning learned, some thieves are opportunists and will take advantage of a situation when you least expect them to.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspects is asked to call the Greenville Police Tip Line at 864-271-GCPD (4273) or Greenville Crime Stoppers at 864-23-CRIME.
