Publix security cameras captured two men using fraudulent credit cards to make over $3,500 in purchases and the Broward Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help in identifying them.

On November 14, the victim, who lives in Texas, received a call from her credit card company notifying her that someone used her card without her consent at several grocery stores in Broward.

The thieves made two charges at a Lauderhill Publix totaling $1079.53, one charge at a Publix in Margate for $631.75, two charges at a North Lauderdale Publix totaling $1070.77, one charge for $420.24 at an Oakland Park Publix and one charge for $339.50 at a Publix in Tamarac.

The first suspect is a bald, heavyset male with a dark complexion and a faint goatee. He wore a black V-neck shirt with a white undershirt and black pants.

The second suspect is a male with a medium build, a dark complexion and a goatee. He wore a black T-shirt, army fatigue shorts, a brown cap and sunglasses.
