Police searching for smiling credit card thief in Cumberland County

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C.

The suspect allegedly stole a local woman's identity, then opened up a bank account in her name and ripped off $11,000 from a bank.

On April 10, bank surveillance pictures showed the suspect smiling into a camera as he took out money from the ATM.

Authorities said the man hit more than one ATM over past four weeks and also made purchases at a Walmart store in the area.

The suspect is described as an African-American man with facial hair.

Officials said he is known for talking on the phone during the illegal transactions, and sharing his crime with listeners.

Anyone with information about the case, or the suspect, is asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at (910) 323-1500 or 911.
