The Crime Stoppers' target this week is a man wanted for credit card fraud.

According to Chattanooga police, the man stole a woman's wallet March 21 and used her debit card to buy prepaid credit cards at a Chattanooga Walmart. The man then used the credit cards in Stockbridge, Ga., and Morrow, Ga., police said.

The suspect is described as a well-dressed black man with a short haircut and full beard, but no mustache.

He could be driving a black Chevy pickup truck with large chrome wheels. The truck windows are tinted, there is a tonneau cover over the bed, and the tailgate has a silver stripe that runs the length of the gate.

Anyone with information that leads to the suspect's arrest could be eligible for a confidential $1,000 reward. Call 423-698-3333.
