Suspects broke into car at gym, used stolen credit card at Pavilion

Fayetteville police caught two suspects red-handed Wednesday after they used a stolen credit card at the Target store at the Fayette Pavilion in a “shopping spree."

Police said the card had been stolen from a vehicle parked at the World Gym parking lot, and officers were able to get a description of the person who used the stolen card and a copy of the receipt.

After the suspect’s description was aired on police radio, Sgt. Ernest Stanley saw the suspect entering Best Buy where she was confronted by Officer David Cagle, police said.

Officers obtained the receipt matching the items purchased at Target with the stolen card ... which were found in the suspect’s vehicle along with items linking the suspect to crimes in Gwinnett County, Suwanee and Lawrenceville.

Heather Michelle Sharky was arrested for one count of entering an auto, three counts of financial transaction card theft and one count of financial transaction card fraud, police said.

Alitosh Jenine Reyes was arrested for one count of entering an auto, one count of possession of tools for the commission of a crime and three counts of financial transaction card theft, police said.

Thanks FPD for getting two more criminals off the streets! ID and property theft is still a crime and really hurts innocent people.

Save yourself and maybe others too. Concealed Carry Permit How-To

Sgt. Ernest Stanley is a Good Man. The Fayetteville PD was right on in awarding him his stripes. He makes good cases; he doesn't have an ego or temper issue; he works well in his department and with other departments. I have worked with Ernest off and on for nearly 20 years.

Those of you (jlyrgr;depdawg) who want to insult him are probably former defendants. Why else have we never heard from you on any number of important public safety issues?

Knowing Ernest, he would laugh to read your comments because he is not the type of law enforcement official that loses his temper easily. We need more like him.

A former defendant I am not. I have known that man and his ways for a number of years. he was given his stripes, not earned them, by a previously corrupt and lackluster administration. The stripes dont make the officer, the officer makes the stripes. He was promoted because of longevity and not ability!!! There are many more deserving officer's at that agency!!!

Good job Officer Cagle...you continue to set the standard. We all know Stanley couldn't find water if he fell out of a boat. Good job..

I agree, Sgt. Stanley sucks! What a waste of a good police officer position!!!!!!

Sergeant Stanley is a good police officer with over 15 years experience. From my understanding he was the one who first saw one of the females at the Pavilion which led to the arrest of all of them. Not taking anything away from Officer Cagle, who I understand is a very good officer also.
