JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Purchases under stolen card numbers targeted three people this weekend in Region 8.

According to the Jonesboro Police Department, Xiaoqian Xu, 20, told police on Saturday, two purchases were made by someone at the Wal-Mart on Highland drive, one of $400 and the other of about $405 dollars. Xu said she still had the possession of her card so the suspect would have had to use her number.

Lingli Chen was with Xu while the report was being filed and had a similar report filed earlier that day. According to the police report, Xu and Chen believe the same people stole their credit card numbers.

The police report Chen filed shows purchases were made using her credit card number and it totaled up to over $1,500.

The police report shows Jonesboro police have reviewed security footage of the alleged crime and they believe the suspect who used Chen's information was wearing a grey jacket during the purchase.

No other information has been released about the incident.

In another police report filed Saturday, Joseph Crawford, 32, of Jonesboro, told police someone used his debit card number and made purchases adding up to over $800.

Crawford told police the purchases were made Saturday at around 9 a.m. but he had all of his debit cards with him at that time.

We will continue to track this story and bring you the latest details as they become available.
