NC cops bust duo wanted for credit card fraud in Summerville

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

North Carolina law enforcement officers are holding two suspects wanted on theft and credit card fraud charges in Summerville.

Authorities say 26-year-old Michael Triaman Jackson and 36-year-old Demetrice Peterson were captured on surveillance video after stealing bank cards from a woman in a Summverville parking lot.

Summerville police are expected to extradite Peterson back to Summerville sometime Thursday. Jackson still has charges pending in the NC area. Both are being held at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Jail. It is unclear how they were captured at this time.

Investigators say the August incident happened at the Lowe's parking lot on North Main Street. Police say that the victim had just finished shopping and was loading her vehicle trunk with her purchases when she was approached by Jackson, who asked her for directions to the Knightsville area.

The victim said that she ignored Jackson, but was then approached by Peterson, who also asked her a question. Police said the victim thinks that while she was talking to the Peterson, Jackson went into her vehicle and stole her purse.

Detectives said the suspects target older women, asking for directions to distract them and then steal their purses.

Surveillance from a nearby CVS shows Jackson using the stolen bank cards. Police said  Peterson is also present in the video.

Investigators said Jackson and Peterson may be connected to other cases in the Tri County area. Both suspects were arrested by Mt. Pleasant Police back on June 22 for a similar crime, but they posted bond.
