Crime Stoppers: Credit Cards Stolen At Lexington School

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) — While everyone was inside enjoying a game, someone outside took advantage of an opportunity. 

A credit card thief who struck the parking lot at Lexington Catholic High School two months ago is still on the loose. 

Back in September a thief stole credit cards from cars parked in the lot at Lexington Catholic while a game was taking place inside.

"They wait for you to park and then go into the event, and then they will go from car to car to car trying door handles to see if they can unlock it and get inside," said Detective Mark Thomas with the Lexington Police Department. 

Detectives say that the doors were unlocked.

"That's something that's pretty typical of younger people, to be just a little bit naive in that regard," said Thomas. "You can never, never, never leave your car unlocked, especially with valuables inside, and then even worse if you have anything visible."

The thief was later caught on surveillance video using those stolen cards at several gas stations in the area.

Thomas said that he believes the victim isn't the only young person in this crime.

"It seems petty to us. This guy is probably going to be younger as well, inexperienced in life, and will probably have to end up going to jail or paying some sort of penalty for this," he said.
