 man went to work out at the Planet Fitness on Thursday, January 21st at around 4:00 PM. While he was there, he began getting text alerts regarding potential fraud activity on his credit card. When he went to his locker, he discovered the lock had been cut and his property had been stolen.

The fraudulent charges on the victim's credit card occurred nearby at Dillard's and Best Buy, and then an attempt at Sam's Club.
