The incidents occurred in the area of 44th Street and Kenowa Avenue during the last week of December, said Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.
During the early morning, suspects entered unlocked garages and vehicles and stole credit cards, which they used at area businesses before the owners discovered them missing.
A photo of one of the suspects was obtained from an area retailer on Dec. 31, 2016. Several of the stolen credit cards were used at area retailers around that time, Bennett said.
More than $6,000 worth of merchandise was obtained using the stolen credit cards.
