MADISON (WKOW) — Area health club members are being put on alert after a Madison police crime analyst discovered a pattern of thefts where men’s locker rooms have been targeted and credit cards stolen.
Police have released photos of two men, who they describe as “persons of interest.”
Cases date back to January with several victims reporting similar crimes in Madison, Middleton and Fitchburg.
In all of the pattern crimes, credit cards were removed from both unlocked lockers and those secured with a padlock.
A thief then quickly uses them to run up charges at area stores, with gift cards and electronics often purchased.
Police are working with area law enforcement agencies to identity and arrest those involved.
Anyone with information should contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014.
