Three guys are accused of going on a spending spree at Speedway gas stations, a UDF, and Walmart using credit cards taken from a stolen car.

Columbus Police say the victims were in town from Florida to visit their daughter at the end of October when their car was stolen from her northwest Columbus apartment complex. Then charges started showing up on the credit cards that were inside the car at the time.

In surveillance video released by police, three guys can be seen at the UDF on Tuttle Crossing buying a couple bags worth of snacks, using one of the stolen cards. They were also caught on camera at the Walmart on Britton Parkway. Officers say they also managed to spend more than $2,000 at more than a dozen Speedway gas stations around the area.

Police say they're especially hoping to identify one of the suspects, seen in a hoodie with white strings, who was seen using the cards for purchases.
