Authorities are searching for a man who stole about 100 gift cards early Wednesday morning from a Dollar General on Peach Orchard Road.




According to an incident report, authorities were called to the store at 3120 Peach Orchard Road for an alarm activation around 2:45 a.m. where they discovered the front glass to the business had been broken. Surveillance video showed a man inside the store removing items from a gift card rack.

A manager at the store estimates that 80 Visa gift cards and 20 Applebee’s gift cards were stolen.

That is so funny People who

That is so funny
People who broke into the store are obviously not too smart. I bet they will be screaming and yelling at the personnel in the store they try to use the Visa cards in,telling the store personnel there must be something wrong with the store's register
Their son, who is a really good boy, gave them the gift card for Christmas

What they do is sell them to

What they do is sell them to ppl that are stupid enough to think they are good cards. Geez....I've had a few ppl try to sell me some and I say...oh sure let me call the 800 number and see if it's valid. That doesn't make them too happy. Not me, sucker!!!
