CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Carson City Sheriff’s Office is asking for help identifying possible suspects in a vehicle burglary in Carson City and subsequent credit card fraud in Douglas County

Friday, February 1, 2019, a Carson City resident parked her vehicle at a Prison Hill trailhead near 5th Street and Carson River Road. She went hiking on Prison Hill and when she returned to her vehicle, she found it had been broken into. Her credit cards had been taken, then used at several businesses on Topsy Lane in Douglas County.

Video surveillance from the businesses shows what the Sheriff's Office says may be four Asian male using the victim’s credit cards. They were driving what appeared to be a green Audi Q7 SUV.

CCSO says vehicle burglaries are common at trailhead parking lots and park-and-ride locations. The Carson City Sheriff’s Office recommends when parking at trailheads and park-and-ride locations, you shouldn't leave valuables such as wallets inside vehicles.
