JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

In the final mad dash to the Christmas holiday, you may find yourself in the maddening rush at the local shopping center or department store.

It's easy to forget that would-be criminals are on the prowl waiting for you to slip up. This week’s Most Wanted segment features two men whose names police don't know. The men targeted an unsuspecting shopper.

On October, Johnson City police said they got a call about a stolen credit card at Walmart on West Market Street.

Police said that card was used to attempt purchases at Walmart, Foot Locker and an area gas station.

No surprise, the surveillance cameras were rolling the whole time catching images of the two men on their shady shopping spree.

Police want to find them and they want you to remember a few simple tips to protect yourself and your belongings.

“Make sure that all your identification is kept on your person, kept somewhere. Don't leave it in a buggy, don't leave it in a pocketbook in a buggy because there are people that just wander the stores and look for that type thing,” said Lt. Steve Sherfey, Johnson City Police.

If you know where police can find these suspects call the Johnson City Police Department’s Crime Stopper’s line at 434-6158.
