Champaign police investigate burglary incidents

Posted:
CHAMPAIGN - The Champaign Police Department is seeking the public's help in its investigation into two incidents that involve burglaries and the subsequent use of stolen credit cards.

Champaign police say on April 2, officers took two separate reports of vehicle burglaries that happened at the YMCA location on Fields South Drive between 5:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.  Authorities say a light blue Coach brand purse and its contents were taken from one car, and a wallet containing two credit cards and a driver's license were taken from another.

Police say the stolen credit cards were used by a woman to purchase two $700 gift cards at the Target location on North Prospect Avenue, after which she exits the building and is picked up by a white van.  Authorities say the suspect was captured on surveillance video purchasing the cards.  We've included an image of the woman in this article.

If anyone has information regarding this person, or information about these crimes, they are asked to contact Champaign County Crime Stoppers at (217) 373-8477.
