Springfield - Police need your help with a rash of credit card thefts.

 

Since August of 2012, several suspects have been stealing credit cards and wallets at various restaurants such as Panera Bread, Starbucks, Cracker Barrel, and Longhorn Steakhouse. Directly following the theft the suspects us the victim's credit and debit cards to make large purchases.
