LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Thieves broke into several cars during a Doss High School basketball game in January, stealing credit cards and racking up more than $2,000 in unauthorized purchases, according to police.

Clayton R. Chapman, 32, and Marquel Elzy, 26, are accused of smashing the windows of three cars and removing items from inside the vehicles on January 19. Police said the suspects stole credit cards and prescription narcotic medication, among other items.

According to an arrest report, one of the credit cards was used at the Meijers on Dixie Highway to purchase an Xbox game and a 42" television worth nearly $500, and another credit card was used to buy two $100 gift cards at a self-scan computer. Other unauthorized purchases were made with the stolen credit cards.

Police said each of the three victims' cars sustained less than $500 worth of damage.
