Thieves try using Wichita family's stolen credit cards

Posted: Updated:

A South Wichita family is hoping someone will recognize the pair that used their credit cards, which were stolen during an overnight burglary.

"It's been rough these last few days but hopefully we can get these people off the street," said Jarea Jarrell.

The family was sleeping inside when both of their cars, which were parked on the driveway, were broken into. The thieves used the garage door opener and a pole to quietly get into their garage. 

"My thought was, 'What if they would've came in and went downstairs and did something to my children?'  They could've easily hurt any of us. They could've shot us," said Jarrell.

The thieves took power tools, bags, a wallet, and a handgun.

A police report shows the thieves tried using Jarrell's credit card at the Dillons, by 47th and Broadway, on Wednesday at 10:10 a.m. Surveillance photos show the couple walking into the store.

Another police report shows Jarrell's credit card was attempted to be used at the Walmart, by Pawnee and Broadway, on Wednesday at 11:36 a.m.
