Couple Scams Parkland Pet Store With Phony Credit Card

ATTACK AT THE AIRPORT JANUARY 6th.

HE COULD FACE THE DEATH PENALTY IF HE'S CONVICTED.

NEW AT 6:00 THE HUNT FOR A FAMILY WHO STOLE AN EXPENSIVE PUPPY FROM A SOUTH FLORIDA PET STORE.

THE STORE'S MANAGER THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS OKAY UNTIL THEY FOUND OF FOUND OUT THE CREDIT CARD WAS A FAKE.

ORALIA ORTEGA IS LIVE IN PARKLAND WITH THE STORY FOR US.

Reporter: ELIOTT, THE THIEVES CAME INTO THE STORE BACK IN JANUARY.

AND THEY BOUGHT A PUPPY SIMILAR TO THIS LITTLE GUY RIGHT HERE.

BUT THE PROBLEM ACCORDING TO AUTHORITIES IS THAT THEY WERE USING A FRAUDULENT CARD.

THEY WANT YOU TO TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO TO HELP THEM IDENTIFY THEM.

SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS ARE ROLLING INSIDE A PARKLAND PET BOUTIQUE SHOP AS A MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD SHOP AROUND FOR A PUPPY.

THE AFTERNOON OF JANUARY 11.

STORE MANAGER SAYS SHE SUGGESTED THIS CUTE NINE AND A HALF WEEK OLD BEAGLE FOR THE FAMILY.

THE BEAGLES A GREAT FAMILY BREED.

VERY GOOD FOR KIDS.

VERY SMART.

GOING TO LAST 15 TO 18 YEARS AND GROW UP WITH THE BABY.

Reporter: THE COUPLE A FEMALE IN HER EARLY 30s, AND A MALE WITH DARK CURLY HAIR, A BEARD, WITH A STOCKY BUILD, DECIDED TO BUY THE BEAGLE FROM PUPPY PLUS OFF NORTH STATE ROAD 7 AND WEST HILLSBOROUGH BOULEVARD WHEN THE COUPLE WENT TO PAY.

HE WENT TO RUN THE CARD AND IT GOT DECLINED.

WHICH IS NOT UNUSUAL BECAUSE WE DO A LOT OF HIGHER TRAN ACTIONS.

THE COUPLE CALLED THE BANK GOT A CODE AND THE TRANSING WENT THROUGH.

THEN WE FOUND OUT WE GET A CALL THAT IT WAS NOT A GOOD PURCHASE.

AND THIS IS WHY WE GOT THE CALL.

THEY BASICALLY FOUND SOMEBODY'S WALLET AND CREATED THAT IDENTITY AS THEIR OWN.

SO THEY'RE USING THAT PERSON'S I DON'T TO MAKE OTHER PURCHASES.

Reporter: DETECTIVES BELIEVE THE THIEVES MAY HAVE SUBSEQUENTLY SOLD THE PUPPY TO A THIRD PARTY FOR CASH.

THEY WANT YOU TO TAKE ECHOES LOOK AT THE PEOPLE IN THIS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO AND ALSO, BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THE BEAGLE.

WE REALLY WANT TO FIND THESE PEOPLE AND MAKE SURE THEY DON'T DO IT TO ANY OTHER STORES.

WE KNOW THAT WE'RE NOT GETTING, YOU KNOW, THE PUPPY OR THE MONEY BACK THE.

NOT ABOUT THAT FOR US.

IT'S ABOUT STOPPING THESE PEOPLE AND NOT LETTING THEM DO IT, AGAIN.

Reporter: AND WHEN IT WAS ALL SAID AND DONE THE THIEVES RANG UP $1500 WORTH OF CHARGES HERE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON WHO THEY ARE CONTACT BROWARD.
