Area's Most Wanted: two criminals wanted for credit card theft

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It was at a Wells Fargo Bank in Columbus where a local woman's finances took a sudden dive.

According to police, the victim's son made a financial transaction at an ATM machine July 1, 2014 and on July 2, 2014. Hundreds of dollars was taken from the woman's account.

"There was a large amount taken from Wal-Mart on the charge card and the rest of the withdrawals came from the ATM at that bank." Cpl. Deborah Whitley said, with Columbus Police Department.

While the surveillance photo appears to be a woman, police want them both suspects brought to justice.

At this time, police are not sure how the thieves managed to get their hands on the credit card, but they are sending out a warning to card holders to keep a close eye on your financial possessions.

"People are not shy. If they see a way to get money, there's just so much dishonesty going on. Nobody cares whose money it is or how bad that person needs it or how hard they worked for it. They're going to take whatever they can get and that's why we have to be more cautious about what we do about our possessions and what we do with our belongings," Cpl. Whitley said.

If you have any information on this case, you are asked to call authorities at (706) 653-3400.
