CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Police Department (CPD) is warning the public of a possible credit card predator in the area.

According to CPD spokesperson Officer Natalie Hall, the suspect purchased gift cards using credit cards that do not belong to him, but to individuals who have never reported lost or stolen credit cards. He purchased the gift cards at two Wal-Mart locations, 3050 Wilma Rudolph Blvd. and 1680 Fort Campbell Blvd., Aug. 18 between 1 and 4 p.m. Hall said the suspect purchased three or four gift cards at a time in $300 and $400 increments, bringing the current total to $3,000.

The suspect was seen leaving both locations in a dark-colored van.

The detective investigating the case believes the suspect may be working in a restaurant and skimming the cards when customers pay with credit cards. Police say it is possible more people have been victimized.

Anyone with information can call the Clarksville Police Department at 931-648-0656 or Crime Stoppers at 931-645-TIPS.
