Sarpy County Crime Stoppers are looking for help identifying two men who tried to use a stolen credit card. Bellevue police gave WOWT 6 Crime Stoppers a pretty good picture of one of the men who went shopping at the Bellevue WalMart.

We are told that the man pictured is one of two men who tried to purchase two laptops and a phone at the store. When the credit card was declined, they tried to just buy one laptop and the phone. That purchase was declined too. So when they tried to buy just the phone, and the credit card was declined a third time, the men grabbed the phone and ran out the door.

The credit card the men were using was stolen from a woman’s purse at Harrah’s Casino in Council Bluffs at 9:11 a.m. on February 23. With the help of casino security, one of the suspects has been identified. His name has not yet been released. So, Bellevue police are trying to identify the second suspect whose image was given to WOWT 6 Crime Stoppers.

It’s a pretty good picture. Take note of the unique designs in the man’s hat and his sweatshirt which is partially hidden by a jacket. If you can help with this case, call Sarpy County Crime Stoppers at 402-592-STOP.
