Bensalem police ask for help to ID car thieves


Bensalem Township police are asking for help identifying a young man and woman suspected of stealing a vehicle, breaking into several other cars, and using stolen credits.

Several vehicles were broken into and a 2009 Nissan Altima was stolen early Sunday in the 200 block of Tremain Road, police said Friday.

According to the police statement:

The stolen credit cards were used at a Wawa at Rhawn Street and Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia. The store’s surveillance system recorded them:

The couple was driving the Altima at the time. The car has since been recovered after being involved in a police chase in Philadelphia.

Anyone with information is asked to call Bensalem Detective John Monaghan at 215-633-3700.
