Authorities have asked the public to take a look at surveillance photos in hopes of identifying three people suspected of using a stolen debit card to make purchases and get cash back at businesses in San Diego and Lemon Grove.
The incidents involving the stolen card occurred on Aug. 1, when a man used it to buy $105 in merchandise from the Wal-Mart at 3412 College Way and got $100 in cash back, according to a Sheriff’s Department and San Diego Crime Stoppers statement.

Several hours later, another man and a woman used the stolen card to purchase $173 in goods from the same store and get another $100 in cash back, according to the statement.
The pair then used the card to make a $154 purchase at the CVS drug store at 7100 Broadway in Lemon Grove.
The woman was described as Hispanic, between 20 and 25 years old, and was wearing a black shirt and dark pants.
The other male suspect was black with a light complexion, between 18 and 25 years old and had a large afro with a noticeable white spot on the right side. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray sweat pants.
