Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help solving a series of vehicle burglaries and credit fraud cases.

Recently, criminals burglarized vehicles parked outside a post office in Livingston, Texas.

Investigators believe that the burglars waited in the post office parking lot for a customer to leave a purse unattended inside a vehicle, and then broke a window of the vehicle and stole the purse.

Within minutes of the vehicle burglaries, the victims' credit and debit cards were fraudulently used at area businesses to purchase expensive electronics merchandise or high-dollar-value gift cards.

Investigators know that the men used two vehicles while committing these crimes.

At Walmart in Cleveland, Texas, the suspects drove a blue 2010-2012 year model Dodge Avenger and at Walmart in Livingston, they drove a tan, four-door vehicle.

After viewing video from security cameras at Walmart, investigators selected four men that they want to speak with concerning these crimes: a middle-aged white man about 6' tall who weighs approximately 175 lbs; a young white male about 5'10'' who weighs about 200lbs; a young black man who is about 5'6'' and weighs about 150 lbs; and a man described only as an older white man.
