Our first unsolved case takes us to the Walmart on 75th Avenue north of McDowell.

"This crime occurred on Oct. 12, 2013 at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch.

A woman loaded her cart with hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise then paid with a debit card. The card, however, was fake. It was embedded with the stolen debit card information of a California man who still had his real card in his wallet.

"This is a crime that went unnoticed until he received a bill with information from Phoenix and he lived in another state," Burch said. "Another good reason to always check your statements."

Our next case may have involved a party because it involved a lot of beer. It happened just after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013.

"Two men walked into the QT at 99th Avenue and Camelback and grabbed four 30-packs of beer," said Burch. "They walked up to the counter like they were going but purchase it but then one of the men pulled a gun from his pocket and racked a round. The two guys then picked up the beer and walked out."

The clerk wasn't hurt, but flashing the gun turned a misdemeanor shoplifting into an armed robbery. The men fled in a 1990s silver Ford F-150 truck.
