SCHERERVILLE | Schererville police are seeking the identity of a man who used recoded credit cards to buy cigarettes at the Pit Stop Smoke Shop in Schererville.

The person used three different recoded credit cards when making the purchases Nov. 13, 16 and 29, police said.

During each transaction, the man bought five cartons of cigarettes. Police said the man asked the store clerk to manually enter the card numbers because the magnetic strip was worn, police said.

Each credit card number used was reported closed due to counterfeit magnetic strips, police said.

Anyone with information about the incidents should contact Schererville police Detective Patrick Rosado at (219) 322-5000.
