Bethesda, Maryland -- Montgomery County police are looking for suspects who have spent thousands of dollars using stolen credit cards. One of their purchases happens to be a puppy. 

Police say two suspects broke into the car of a 60-year-old woman while she was at church and stole her purse containing credit cards.

Within two hours, the suspects gained a fake Maryland license with the victim's information and picture, officials said.

A female suspect used the stolen credit card and fake license to buy a three-month-old Yorkshire Terrier from the Just Puppies store in Rockville.

The suspects also bought clothes at the Nordstrom at the Westfield Montgomery Mall. Surveillance video from the story shows the suspects holding the puppy, officials said.

In total, the suspects charged approximately $4,100 to the victim's credit card.
