SUMMARY:
On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, between the hours of 6:00 pm and 6:20 pm, the two victims parked along the side of the road on Glen Helen Parkway near the I-15 freeway. The victims walked a short distance into the mountains to take photos and left their vehicles unlocked with their purses sitting on the passenger seats. When the victims returned to their vehicles they discovered their purses had been stolen.

Later that day, the victims later discovered their credit cards had been fraudulently used at the Target store located on Summit Avenue in Fontana. Video surveillance from Target showed two subjects, a male and female, using the victims’ stolen credit cards at the self-check out lane to purchase $1,000 worth of gift cards.

To assist in deterring and preventing thefts, citizens are encouraged to always lock their vehicles. In addition, citizens are encouraged to secure their valuable items out of view if leaving them in their vehicle.
