Keep your entire personal information safe; there is a credit card thief on the loose in Columbus.

According to police, the suspect has gone to five different Columbus stores using stolen cards to buy different items.

"He brought prepaid cards and all different types of things from the Dollar Generals," Cpl. Deborah Whitley with the Columbus Police Department tells News Leader 9.

While purchasing some items at a Walgreens store on Macon Road, a surveillance camera revealed his identity. The suspect is about 6' tall and weighs 200 pounds with a medium build. He wears silver rimmed glasses and has a medium haircut. When he's finally caught, police say he could be facing some serious charges.

"Credit card fraud is a serious crime, that's a theft, and it can be a felony," says Whitley.

The Columbus Police Department understands the impact this crime has on people.

"We work hard for our money and we don't need someone taking and using our credit cards because that comes back on us, "says Whitley.

So help the Columbus Police Department put a name to the face and make an arrest. A cash reward of up to $1,000 will be offered for any information that will lead to an arrest.
