Eureka Police are trying to find two men suspected of stealing from an unlocked SUV and using a stolen debit card. The theft occurred between 10 p.m. June 14 and 6 a.m. June 15 in the 16000 block of Enderbush Lane in Eureka, Capt. David Wilson said.
The victim, a 40-year-old Eureka woman, told police someone had gone through her unlocked 2012 Chevrolet Traverse. The woman also said a Vera Wang wallet, valued at $200, was stolen, the report said.
While the woman was talking with police, she was notified that her debit card had been used at a 7-Eleven convenience store and Motomart convenience store in St. Louis. The card was used to buy $43 in champagne at 7-Eleven and to make a $20 purchase at Motomart, according to the report.
Surveillance video from the 7-Eleven showed a man purchasing the champagne. The man was described as black with a light complexion and between age 21 and 25. He was about 5 feet tall and weighed about 160 pounds. He was wearing a white baseball cap with piping at the base of the brim and dark shorts with a tag still attached, the report said.
Another man was with him and had a dark complexion and was between age 23 and 28. He was about 5 foot, 9 inches, tall and weighed an estimated 175 pounds. He had short, black hair and was wearing a white tank top, black shorts and white shoes, according to the report.
The two men got into an SUV, possibly a Toyota 4Runner, and left the 7-Eleven. On June 18, St. Charles Police found the woman’s debit card in a vehicle that had been reported stolen, Wilson said.
As of June 24, the two men seen in the surveillance video had not been identified, and the wallet had not been recovered, Wilson said. Anyone with information about the incident should call Eureka Police at 636-938-6601.
