Eagle County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for help convicting three male suspects who have been using stolen credit cards and PIN numbers in the Roaring Fork Valley since the holidays.

The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office has surveillance video of the three men suspected of the fraudulent purchases and the dark-colored minivan they have used.

A statement from the Sheriff’s Office said the men have been making purchases using the stolen credit cards throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.

One of the suspects wore what might be a Denver Broncos jersey that included the number 8 or 18 on it. He is wearing a jacket that partially covers the jersey in a still shot taken from surveillance video.

Another of the suspects was described by the Sheriff’s Office as a “skinny male” who appears to be wearing a black hat. The third suspect is in a maroon jacket.

Anyone who recognizes the men or vehicle in the photos is asked to call the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office at 970-328-8500 or Eagle County Crime Stoppers at 970-328-7007. Tips can also be sent by texting STOPCRIME plus the message to CRIMES (274637) or online at
