EBRSO Looking For Man Using Fake Credit Cards

East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Detectives are looking for a man that was seen using counterfeit credit cards to makes purchases at the Toys R Us located at 10780 N.Mall Drive on January 8, 2014 at approximately 1:00 p.m.

According to reports, the man used an American Express credit card to make two fraudulent purchases at the store to buy three car seats for $970.17 at 1:01 p.m. and to buy an iPad Air and an Xbox One game system for $1,198.98 at 1:16 p.m. Detectives believe the card is fraudulent as the victim is still in possession of the actual card. Through the course of this investigation it was learned that the same unknown male attempted to make a purchase with a second counterfeit credit card at the GameStop, 3145 College Drive Baton Rouge, but was unsuccessful.

The suspect is described as slim built, Asian male wearing a white New York Yankees baseball hat. He appears to be approximately 20-30 years old. 
Anyone with information concerning this incident or the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office at 225-389-5000. Crime Stoppers is also offering a cash reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of those responsible. Contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at (225) 344- STOP or (225) 344-7867.
