Suspects wanted for elaborate scheme at Speedway

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Newport Police are attempting to identify the two subjects who are wanted for Theft.

On Jan. 14, 2013, a white male entered the Speedway at E. 10th St. in Newport and asked to reload $500 onto his Netspend Mastercard Prepaid Credit Card.

The clerk put the money on the card and the subject then stalled the clerk while he attempted to find his money.  He then told the clerk that he didn't have any money on him and asked that the $500 be voided off the card.

The clerk attempted to void the transaction, but the subject had already had his partner withdraw the money from the ATL inside the Speedway.

The first subject hit the card under the counter on the candy rack.  The second subject grabbed it, withdrew the money and brought the card back before the clerk realized it.  The first subject is the white male with the blue baseball hat on.  The second subject has a dark colored coat and hat on.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
