Thief Pillages Gym on Wade Hampton Blvd.

People working out at a local gym on Jan. 6 returned to the locker room to find their belongings ransacked by a thief who slipped past security.  The thefts occurred at Z-X Fitness, formerly Peak Fitness, on Wade Hampton Boulevard.

According the reports, the thief took the cards and used them at several local businesses.  “These individuals, they work around the system,“ says Deputy Matt Armstrong with the Greenville Sheriff’s Office.  “They know what kind of businesses to target, or vehicles to target.  They acquire the cards, and they they go use them right away before the victim cancels the card.“

Surveillance cameras did catch a good shot of the thief, but not before ripping off at least three victims.

More than a week later, Greenville County Sheriff’s Office deputies are still searching for the thief. If you have any information, please call Crimestoppers at (864) 23-CRIME.
