A wanted fraud suspect is using stolen credit cards at several Edmond stores. So far at least three victims have come forward.

Edmond Police were able to grab a surveillance picture of who they think went on a Christmas shopping spree with somebody else's money.

Stores packed with holiday shoppers desperate to buy last minute gifts, but Edmond police say one shopper was so desperate they walked into three different Edmond Walgreen's stores and paid with stolen credit cards.

The first happened at the Walgreens at 301 South Santa Fe. There were two transactions. One purchase was made for more than $500 and the other was more than $900. The charges stuck out like a sore thumb to the real card holder, who has no idea how a thief got ahold of his information.

"That's how the victims in this case found out there was something going on because they saw these charges. They don't live in Edmond and they saw these charges being made in our city,” said James Hamm of the Edmond Police Department.

Another Edmond Walgreens and another victim led to charges that racked up more than $500 in one transaction and more than $200 in another one. Police captured surveillance video at the Walgreens located in the 2600 block of Kelly. The video showed someone racking up charges with a stolen credit card.

"We're hoping someone will recognizes the suspect, and that way we can them with the crimes,” Hamm said.

The victim in this case discovered several charges she didn't make while looking at her account online.

"It becomes a headache for these victims,” Hamm said. “They've got to go through all the hoops of getting credit cards changed, accounts changed, proving that they didn't make these charges to their credit card companies so they're not out the money themselves."
