JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two Memphis men were arrested after using someone else's credit cards to buy gift cards.

According to a Jonesboro police report, Apollinaire Anoh, 41, and Augustin Adouko, 31, used credit cards to buy several gift cards at the Walmart on Highland Drive. A loss prevention employee told an officer she suspected the men were using stolen cards right after they left the store.

Police weren't able to catch up with the suspects' car as they left Walmart, but did spot the vehicle later in the Shoe Carnival parking lot.

An officer waited for Adouko to walk out of the store, then went inside to talk to employees. In the report, the officers said Adouko “appeared to know that police were waiting outside for him.”

An officer found a Walmart gift card in the bathroom trash can in that store.

When officers searched their vehicle they found a large amount of gift cards and credit or debit cards.

Both men admitted they had been in Walmart earlier, but Annoh said he paid with cash.

The loss prevention employee from Walmart positively identified the men.

Adouko and Annoh were both arrested and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and theft by receiving.

They are both scheduled to appear in court Jan. 26.
