Police release video of armed robbery suspects using stolen credit card

ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg police detectives have obtained video footage of three suspects using a credit card taken during a Sept. 26 home invasion robbery.

Four or five unknown suspects forced their way into the home at 1780 70th Circle N, police said. The suspects, who were armed with semiautomatic 9mm handguns, stole wallets, purses, cell phones and car keys.

The suspects fled in a dark, older minivan.

Recently obtained surveillance video shows two men and a woman enter the 7-Eleven at 5171 Park Blvd. N in Pinellas Park and make purchases with the stolen credit card, according to police.

Anyone with information or who may recognize these suspects is asked to call the St. Petersburg Robbery Unit at (727) 893-7179 or the Police Communication Center at (727) 893-7780.
