Polk County Sheriff’s deputies are seeking the public’s help in a fraud investigation.
At 11:57 p.m. on Saturday January 7, 2017, the suspects seen here used the victim’s lost bank card at the Racetrac at Hwy 98/Griffin Rd in Lakeland. The suspects used the card to purchase $40.02 of gas and then tried to purchase cigarettes inside the store. One suspect is a white female wearing a green hoodie. The second suspect is a black female with a light colored top and sweatpants. One of the vehicles involved is believed to be a blue van. The card was used earlier that day to purchase $250.00 in gift certificates at Salon Rootz in south Lakeland.
Anyone with information about this investigation is urged to contact Detective Phil Ryan at 863-577-1600 or 863-298-6200.
