REWARD PAID

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying a female suspect responsible for the fraudulent use of a credit card at a Lufkin-area store.

 

During the early morning hours of Friday, August 31, 2102, a dark-haired, white female, who was captured by the store`s security video camera, entered a Lufkin-area store wearing a white t-shirt, dark shorts, and sandals.  While in the store, the suspect used a stolen credit card to purchase cigarettes and a $100 gift card.

 

The video shows that the female suspect arrived at and left the store as a passenger in a tan-in-color, 2007 Chevrolet four-door car driven by a male suspect who also made purchases using the stolen credit card. 

 

An investigator identified the male suspect as Lance Montgomery Crager, a 52-year-old white male.  On September 26, 2012, Mr. Crager surrendered and was booked into jail on a State Jail Felony arrest warrant for the offense of Credit Card Abuse but he has refused to identify his female partner in crime.

9/24/2012 - Jewelry Store Burglary

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying two suspects involved in the burglary of a Lufkin-area jewelry store that resulted in the theft of approximately $200,000 worth of jewelry.

 

Shortly before 1:00 AM on Saturday, September 1st, Lufkin Police Department officers responded to an active burglar alarm at a Lufkin-area jewelry store.  On arrival at the business, the officers found that the front entry door to the building had forced open.  The officers searched the building and the surrounding area but did not find the burglars.  Inside the business, the officers saw that the cloth display case covers had been removed from several of the jewelry display cases and that one display cases had been forced open.

 

Upon review of the business` security video files, the officers learned that two suspects forced their way into a jewelry store by prying open the front door.  The videos shows that, once inside the business, the suspects uncovered several display cases while searching for jewelry and then pried open one of the cases and stole approximately 150 pieces of jewelry.  Most of the jewelry taken was women`s wedding rings made of yellow-gold or white-gold.

 

The suspects seen in the security videos appear to be males, possibly black males, and they might have been driving the tan- or silver-in-color, 2000-2006 year model Chevrolet Suburban seen circling the store`s parking lot less than two minutes before the suspects forced open the front door to the store.

Click to Enlarge

Multiple Crime Stoppers Tipsters correctly identified Robbie Free as the suspect in this case.

 


Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying the suspect in an investigation of the fraudulent use of a debit card.

 

During the second week of July, family members who assist the victim with financial affairs noticed an unusually low balance in the victim’s bank account.  They soon found that the victim’s debit card was missing and that someone used the card without permission to debit a large amount from the victim’s account.

 

According to the victim’s bank records, an unidentified suspect, or possibly multiple suspects, fraudulently used the victim’s stolen debit card over a period of several days for numerous purchases.  In total, the fraudulent transactions caused more than $2,500 in withdrawals from the victim’s bank account.

 

Angelina County Sheriff’s Office investigators obtained security videos from a Lufkin-area convenient store and a Lufkin-area restaurant showing a suspect using the victim’s stolen debit card.  The videos show that the same suspect, a white female, used the stolen debit card at the convenient store and the restaurant.  Click here to view portions of the security videos.  The investigators are working to obtain additional video evidence and to determine if the female suspect acted alone or if someone else also used the stolen card.
