Credit card fraud suspects sought by sheriff

FORT SMITH, Ark – Two suspects are being sought by the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Department in connection to a credit card scheme.

About three weeks ago, workers at Southern Tire Mart reported they had taken a phone order for $3,200. Two different credit cards were used to complete the transaction. The caller gave a company name of “Weatley Transport,” according to the sheriff’s office. It was later learned this was a nonexistent company.

The next day two men showed up dressed as workers and said they represented the company who had bought the tires. One of the “workers” bought more tires using a credit card. All of the purchases totaled around $5,000. A total of eight tires were taken by the “workers.”

Later Southern Tire Mart learned all of the cards numbers which were used for the transactions were stolen from an individual from out of state.
