James City County Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two men who used stolen credit cards to purchase more than $2,000 in gift cards at a local grocery store.

On Feb. 4, a purse was stolen from a vehicle in York County, according to a James City County news release.

The purse contained credit cards, which were later used to purchase more than $2,000 in gift cards at a grocery store in James City County.

Surveillance footage shows two men leaving the grocery store in a vehicle that appears to be a white Hyundai Sonata, the release said.

The day after the gift cards were purchased in James City County, the same two men were seen on surveillance cameras using one of the gift cards at a Nike store in Norfolk.

Anyone able to identify the individuals in these photos, or who knows who may have been involved in this incident should contact Investigator Diane Walters at 757-603-6032 or diane.walters@jamescitycountyva.gov.

Those with information may also contact the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. Callers to the Crime Line may remain anonymous, do not have to testify in court and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if the information leads to an arrest.
