An investigation of about 400 compromised credit and debit card numbers stolen at Huntsville eateries has spread across Alabama and Georgia.

Huntsville Police spokesman Wendell Johnson said these thefts probably affect The Decatur Daily’s coverage area.

Huntsville Public Safety Director Rex Reynolds said Huntsville police investigators and the FBI obtained surveillance videos from businesses in Alabama and the Atlanta area that caught at least four suspects on tape using the cards. Investigators believe the suspects could be from the Huntsville area.

“We need the public’s assistance to help us identify these suspects who are on a spending spree,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds is warning consumers to pay close attention to their bank statements and call their banking institution if they see any discrepancies.

Anyone with information about the case should call Huntsville Police investigator Dwight Hasty at 427-5436 or 722-7100.
