MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

Are you giving or receiving more gift cards than ever before? It's definitely a trend not only among consumers, but also criminals.

Take a look at a very clear example of that in this week's Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers report.

Store surveillance video shows card crook #1. He’s a man with the blue Air Jordan t-Shirt making a purchase at the Walmart on Madison Boulevard in Madison June 3.

And we also see card crook number two. He's wearing a light gray fedora with a blue tank top.

According to police, these two were using a stolen credit card to purchase over $1,000 in gift cards.

The victim's card was not only used at the Walmart, it was also used at local gas stations and a Wendy's restaurant.

But the surveillance shots are priceless. The first suspect is seen leaving the store. And suspect number two - an equally clear shot, even with the hat on his head, as he leaves the store.
 
This one should be solved very quickly.

There's a reward of up to $1,000 with your name on it.
