The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office wants you to be on the lookout for two people accused of using stolen credit cards on an overnight shopping spree that spanned two counties -- and it was all caught on camera.

"You would be surprised on what people use the cards to try and purchase,” said BCSO Corporal Rob Lindell.

Investigators say it all started with two car break-ins in a Bay Minette neighborhood. They say a man and a woman were caught using those victims’ credit cards later in the night at several different stores.

"They're trying to use the card as fast as they can to get whatever they can before the victims find out the card is missing and they cancel it,” said Lindell.

One of the first places the couple went to was a Chevron gas station in Perdido. 360-degree surveillance shows the woman on a shopping spree.

"They bought gas, she bought a pocket knife, latex gloves, they bought some cigarettes,” said Lindell. “You can see her actually holding the victim’s wallet.”

About an hour later, the couple is caught on video at a Walmart in Atmore, where Lindell says they attempted to spend hundreds of dollars, but the transaction was denied.

"They tried to buy a TV, a rug, and other household goods."

Lindell says credit card records show the couple went to two other gas stations and a Dollar General.

"Both are frequenting locations in Perdido and Atmore that they seem to be familiar with, so we feel like they are from that area,” said Lindell. “It’s a felony for every time you swipe it whether the transaction is successful or just an attempt."

As investigators try to locate the two people caught in the video, they also want to spread this message:

"Make sure you lock your cars, because had these vehicles been locked, the chances are less that this would have occurred."
