Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week: Burglary and credit card fraud

From Deep East Crime Stoppers

LUFKIN, TEXAS (News Release) - Police Department investigators need your help again and Crime Stoppers is ready with reward money. This time, investigators are trying to identify two men who used a stolen credit card to purchase a laptop computer.

The credit card they used was stolen from a home on Reen Drive in Lufkin. Last month, Crime Stoppers profiled that burglary and another credit card fraud incident connected to it.  Anonymous tips correctly identified the man who used the victim's credit card in the first incident. With help from new tips, the new suspects will be identified and the investigators will be one step closer to determining who burglarized the residence and took the credit cards, and how the first suspect is connected to these two.

The videos Crime Stoppers received are not the highest resolution. Still, someone will recognize the men and want to collect a reward for providing information that helps investigators put them in jail.  The videos are posted at and at

The suspect who used the card to purchase the laptop is an older, black male. The low resolution video makes it difficult to pick out distinguishing features but he appears to have grey facial hair, hence the "older" description, and to have been wearing glasses. His partner is an older, white male with bushy brown hair, possibly a mustache, and a tattoo on his right forearm. The white male walked with a limp, as though he has a bad right hip or knee.

If you can identify either of the suspects, call Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or submit a tip online at Crime Stoppers calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward for the first, most accurate anonymous tip that leads to an arrest.
