Detectives are looking for information that may help identify two individuals captured in surveillance footage at multiple businesses in St. George.

The incident occurred Oct. 21, 2016, when a woman had her purse stolen, St. George Police Officer Lona Trombley said, adding that fraudulent charges were subsequently made using the stolen cards at several locations, including Lowe’s home improvement store, Target retail store and McDonald’s fast food restaurant.

“The male and the female pictured may have information regarding this theft and fraudulent use of the victim’s cards,” Trombley said.

Anyone who recognizes the two individuals in the photos is asked to call the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4330, referencing No. 16P026349.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
