— Durham police are trying to identify two people who used stolen credit cards to purchase more than $800 worth of clothing last October.

A woman told officers her wallet was stolen from her purse at a fitness center on Hillandale Road on Oct. 10, 2008. Later that evening, a man and a woman used the victim’s stolen credit cards to make purchases at Macy’s at Northgate Mall, police said.

The man was described as black, 30 to 45 years old with a slender build. He was wearing a dark ball cap, a dark jacket, blue jeans and white shoes.

The woman was described as black, in her 30s with a medium to large build. She was wearing blue jeans, sunglasses and a white shirt and was carrying a light-colored pocketbook.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Bryant at 919-560-4582 ext. 233 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
