FORT WORTH (KRLD-AM) – Police in Fort Worth and Houston are searching for three gang members.

Fort Worth Police Sgt. Marc Povero said the three men drove to Fort Worth from Houston earlier this month, broke into a vehicle outside a 24-Hour Fitness and stole a credit card.

“A credit card that was stolen out of that vehicle was used at a Walmart here in Fort Worth,” said Sgt. Povero.  “A charge of $600 was placed on that credit card fraudulently.”

Povero said they also used that stolen credit card at a Target.

The men are said to have bought thousands of dollars worth of electronics with the stolen card.

“We actually received video from that Target that identified the vehicle that the suspects had been driving,” said Sgt. Povero.

Through examination of surveillance footage, police identified the three men as Jermaine Allen, 33, Darnell Walker, 27 and Robert Primes, 25.

Police say three are members of the Blood Street Gang, and all were out on bond when they allegedly committed the car break-in and credit card theft.
