JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A cross-country trip can be expensive. Now imagine your bill contained over $3,000 in fraudulent charges. 

That's what happened to a man from California who was traveling to North Carolina through Arkansas.

He said someone got hold of his credit card number and spent thousands in Marion, West Memphis, and Jonesboro. 

Jonesboro police have surveillance footage of two men that may be connected to the case.  

They were caught on camera at a Jonesboro Walmart.

The man with the black hat is the actual suspect.  

He was seen on camera swiping the card.  

The man next to him entered and left the store with him.  

Right now, he is not considered a suspect but since he is with the suspect, if you can ID him, it could help make an arrest in the case.  

This week on Warrant Watch: similar names, no relation.

Lela Johnson has 11 total warrants, 8 for contempt.

Linda Johnson is one warrant shy of 20; of her 19 warrants, 18 are for contempt.
