Police are trying to find two people that detectives believe broke into a car at the Meadowmont development earlier this month and stole credit cards that they then used to make purchases in the area.
Surveillance photos show a male suspect and a shorter second suspect who has a hat pulled down and might be a man or a woman.
The break-in happened Dec. 10, police said.
The stolen credit cards then were used in buying nearly $5,000 worth of merchandise at stores outside Chapel Hill, police said.
