Montgomery County Police are investigating a credit card fraud incident related to a home invasion robbery in Bethesda last month.
Police are still searching for a man who picked up a woman in the downtown Bethesda area – pretending to be a ridesharing service driver. The suspect drove the woman to her residence on 6800 block of Wisconsin Avenue and demanded money. When the victim explained she ordered a driver and paid through an app – the suspect followed the woman into her apartment, took victim’s purse which included her credit cards, and then fled.
Investigators are releasing surveillance photos of a separate male suspect who fraudulently used the victim’s credit cards after the robbery – to purchase items at stores in Virginia and Maryland.
“At this time we don’t know what the relationship is between or home invasion robbery suspect and the suspect seen on surveillance video using the victim’s stolen credit cards what we know is they are not the same individuals,” said Officer Rick Goodale, Montgomery County Police Department.
Anyone with information about this suspect or the home invasion robbery is asked to contact Montgomery County Police.
