Pilfered plastic: Cops seek three in Park Slope credit card theft

On the hunt: Cops are looking to question this woman, along with two men (pictured below) about a Park Slope pickpocketing that occured earlier this month.

Cops are hunting for three people wanted in connection with an illicit spending spree carried out with credit cards nabbed off a Park Slope woman.

The victim told police somebody bumped into her as she stepped off an R train at the Union Street subway station near Fourth Avenue on March 12 at 9:45 p.m., and only later noticed that her wallet — containing her credit cards and driver’s license — had been pilfered.

On Monday, cops shared surveillance images taken from a Park Slope convenience store, where two men and a woman, all between the ages of 25 and 35, were spotted making purchases with the victim’s cards, according to police, who noted nearly $800 in charges had been racked up on the cards at numerous locations.

Wanted for questioning: Cops are looking to question this man about the Park Slope pickpocketing incident that occured this month.

Anyone who provides police with information leading to an arrest can expect a $2,500 reward through the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers program.
