— Raleigh Police are trying to identify two suspects who used stolen credit cards from burglarized vehicles to make purchases.

In the early morning of July 17, at least four vehicles were entered by the two suspects and items were stolen, according to a press release Friday. The vehicles were parked in the 300 block of Acorn Drive, the 300 block of Quail Drive and 300 block of Robin Hood Drive. The addresses are in close proximity to one another.

The suspects used credit cards stolen from the burglarized vehicles to make purchases at various locations.

In addition to stealing items from vehicles, police believe the same suspects may be responsible for the theft of a 2000 Toyota 4 Runner from a residence on Acorn Drive during the same July 17 timeframe. The vehicle was recovered on July 21.

The first suspect was described ad a heavy-set black woman who appears to be in her teens or 20s. In surveillance photos she is wearing a red, white and black striped shirt, jean shorts and black tennis shoes.

The second suspect was described as a black man with a medium build, who also appears to be in his teens or 20s. Surveillance photos show him wearing a gray or tan shirt with a white pattern on it, white socks and black sandals. He had a white cloth wrapped around his head.
