UPDATE: Tips on surveillance photos identify people using stolen gift cards


WAUSAU (WAOW) - Marathon County detectives say they have identified all of the people shown on surveillance photos cashing in  stolen gift cards at area stores.

Since the Crime Stoppers  report first aired on Wednesday investigators say they have been flooded with calls.

They want to thank everyone who called in information.

 Investigators say hundreds of SCRIP cards were stolen during a burglary at St. John Catholic Church in Edgar in July.

The parish uses the cards as a fundraiser, with most of the money going to its school.

Investigators say three suspects have been arrested in the break-in and thefts.

The cards can be used at many businesses, including County Market, Festival Foods, Fleet Farm, Kohl's, Kwik Trip, Menards, R-Store and Walmart.

If you have information that could help investigators solve crimes in our area  call the toll-free Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-877-409-8777.

You can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
