Greer police are looking for a woman they said worked in a ring to steal credit cards from customers at Upstate Panera Bread restaurants then went on a $8,600 shopping spree.

Police said several women were distracting other women during busy hours at local Panera Bread restaurants to swipe their credit cards from their purses.

The stolen cards were then immediately used to shop at various stores in Greenville, Greer and Spartanburg, especially to buy high price gift cards, police said.

Police said they have surveillance of a woman who is a suspect in the case. The thefts caused $8,600 in loss, according to police.

Anyone who can identify the woman or has information about the thefts is asked to call Greer police at 864-848-5353.
