| June 25, 2013

FORT WAYNE—The Fort Wayne Police Department is presently investigating an incident of theft and fraud. At approximately 12:30 p.m., June 10, at 4122 Lima Road (site of Dunham’s Sports), a male subject entered the site asking for a job application. While in the business, he passes by an office, observes a purse, and immediately walks to the purse and removes the wallet from inside.

Later that same afternoon, another male subject, in the company of a female subject, makes a purchase using the stolen credit card from the wallet/purse.
