On Thursday, July 7, around 11:30 p.m., a man returned to his car that was parked in the vicinity of Desarc Road and Sitka Street, only to realize that his wallet, in which the man kept his credit cards, had been stolen from the vehicle. The victim was then informed that his Citibank credit card was used to purchase food at a McDonald’s on 101st Avenue right after the incident.
The alleged thieves were caught on security cameras and described as men in their 20s.
