Pair wanted in attempted gift card scam

Posted: Updated:
GALLATIN, TN (WSMV) -

Investigators are looking for a couple suspected of trying to scam a drugstore by buying then returning gift cards.

Gallatin Police released Monday surveillance photos from the Walgreens on Green Lea Boulevard.

Investigators said the man and woman in their mid-to-late 20s tried to buy gift cards using a combination of cash and debit cards.

The pair ultimately planned to return the gift cards, but spend their value before the store could deactivate the cards, Sgt. Bill Storment said in an e-mail.

The couple had recently pulled off the ploy at a Walgreens in Hendersonville.

In Gallatin, the store manager was aware of the earlier scam and denied the transaction before it could be completed, police said.

Police are asking for help identifying the man and woman. Anyone with information can call Lt. Lamar Ballard at 452-1313.
