Police report that on June 15, 2019 at about 8:00 PM, they received a complaint from a resident who reported that his credit card company notified him that his credit card was actively being used at the JV Mall. Officers were dispatched to the stores where the card was used and were able to obtain descriptions of the suspects. A search of the Mall resulted in the apprehension of suspects.
