The Goose Creek Police Department is asking for the publicís help in the search for a suspect who used a stolen debit card to buy 12 cartons of cigarettes.
According to a report released by GCPD last week, the suspect entered the Sunoco convenience stores located at 301 N. Goose Creek Blvd. and 200 St. James Ave. on Nov. 6 and utilized a stolen bank card to purchase nine cartons of Newport cigarettes and other items.

GCPD received a fax on Nov. 30 from the Henry County Police Department in Georgia, where the victim resides, according to a GCPD incident report. The victim said she never used the card in South Carolina and has in fact never been to Goose Creek or Moncks Corner, according to the report.
