Thieves are using stolen credit cards for their shopping sprees and detectives need our help tracking them down.

Police say three men used stolen cards to buy hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards. All of the credit cards had been taken from vehicles. Detectives say they show no signs of stopping.

“It's one of those things where they're testing the waters, seeing if they get away with it and if they do they continue to do it, buying gas for cars, filling cars, things like that,” said Bellevue Police detective Francis Gallo.

Surveillance video caught the suspects using the stolen cards at the CVS and Walgreens on Galvin Rd., as well as the Quik Shop at 41st and Harrison.

There are two different vehicles involved, a small white vehicle and a larger darker colored one. Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Sarpy County Crime Stoppers at 402-592-STOP.

One of the victims, Derek Eversole, tells Channel 6 that he had left his wallet in his car while playing softball at he La Vista Sports Complex near 66th and Harrison.

"At first I was a little upset with myself," said Eversole. "I have to be a little bit more careful when I'm leaving my car. Make sure it's locked. I'm no longer leaving anything valuable there."

Another victim was a 16-year-old girl. Her father says her bank card was stolen from a friends car near 90th and Dodge.
