Suspect Sought in McCracken Credit Card Theft
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Authorities in McCracken County are asking for the public's help locating a suspect in a recent theft.

The McCracken County Sheriff's Office said that on January 4, someone broke the side window out of the victim's vehicle and stole a purse containing multiple credit/debit cards from a vehicle in the 4500 block of Clarks River Road.

Later the same evening, the suspect used one of the victim's stolen credit cards at Kroger on Park Avenue to purchase a prepaid credit card.  The suspect also attempted to use two other credit cards stolen from the victim, but the transactions were declined.

The suspect is described as a black male, about 5'9" tall with a thin build and short hair. He was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt with a white logo and dark denim pants, and was driving a newer model, possibly 2016-2018, white Chrysler Town and Country mini-van with a black luggage rack.  The vehicle did not have a visible registration plate and may have possibly had a temporary tag in a window.  The van was also driven by a second individual with a large build wearing a grey jacket.

If anyone has information that may be related to this case, they are asked to contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Department at 270-444-4719.
