The Des Moines Police is seeking help from the public identifying suspects in an investigation involving fraudulent use of a credit card.
In the early morning hours of November 30 2014, suspects burglarized a south side residence taking a purse and its contents (DMPD Case # 2014-35515). Approximately an hour later suspects captured on surveillance video used the victims ATM card at Walgreens and attempted to obtain money from another ATM.
Anyone with information on the identity or location of the suspects is asked to contact the Des Moines Police Detective Bureau at 515-283-4865 or the Polk County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 515-223-1400 .
Beginning on November 26, 2014 the Des Moines Police Detectives have received four robbery reports that showed similarities in the types of business that were robbed as well as the description and actions of the suspects committing the crimes. One of these robberies included the Amazing Beauty store on December 6th. Video surveillance of that robbery was released on a prior date. The most recent case on December 15 (at Jung’s Oriental Store) resulted in two victims being shot.
The Polk County Crimes Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to arrests in these cases. In addition the Des Moines Police Department is offering a reward match of up to $1,000 making the total reward potential $2,000.
