CLAREMORE — The Rogers County Sheriff's Office is searching for two suspects after a credit card was stolen and then used at a Claremore convenience store.

Deputies were notified last week of the theft and video surveillance tapes were turned over to help identify the suspects.
The theft occurred in the parking lot of the Dam Saloon near Oologah Lake.
A woman reported her credit card stolen. It was taken from her vehicle.
Within 19 minutes of the theft the card was used in Claremore to purchase cigarettes and coffee, according to Deputy Jerry Smittle.
Authorities have posted the information on social media sites and are asking the public to help identify the suspects.
Smittle is asking that anyone with any information about the suspects or crime please call the Rogers County Sheriff's Tipline at (918) 341-3620.
