The Whitley County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help to identify a man and a woman. Deputies say on August 13th a man and woman used or tried to use stolen credit and debit cards at the South Corbin Kroger and Rite Aid. Police say the cards were in a purse stolen from a vehicle parked at the Laurel River Lake Spillway. The thieves apparently broke the car’s rear window before taking the purse that was in plain sight. The sheriff’s department says one of the suspects was seen leaving in a gold minivan or compact SUV with three coolers or storage totes on the roof. Anyone with information is asked to call Whitley County E-911 at 606-549-6017. Deputies remind people to hide valuable items left in vehicles by covering them or putting them in the trunk, console or glove compartment areas.
