LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- The Lynchburg Police Department is looking for information regarding a credit card fraud at a gas station on Fort Avenue in Lynchburg.

Police said they got a call Sunday about attempted fraud at the 7-Eleven in the 2300 block.

They said employees reported that a young man attempted to use a credit card to buy reloadable gift cards for a substantial amount of money, and after the card did not work, he left in a black Chrysler PT Cruiser that can be seen in the back of the surveillance photo.

Police said the PT Cruiser appears to have after-market wheels with a Virginia license plate WVP-1628.

Later Sunday morning, police said a victim reported their two vehicles in the 600 block of Hayes Street were broken into overnight and that cash and credit cards were stolen.

That victim later told police that their credit cards had been used multiple times at several locations including 7-Eleven for a substantial amount of money.

The man pictured in surveillance using the credit card appears to be a younger man wearing a light-colored hoodie with the word "SAVAGE" written across the front.

Anyone with information about the case or can identify the suspect is asked to call Officer C.T. Davis at 434-455-6166 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-798-5900.
