    Denton Country Club general manager Stan Becker said one of his members had his car broken into. The thief went straight for the credit cards.

    "There was his wallet -- he had $600 dollars in his wallet. It was not touched. Nothing in his car was touched. The guy just went in there and picked up his credit cards," he said.

    Denton police have video of the man using the stolen credit cards at Target and Best Buy. Investigators said he has racked up thousands of dollars in bills buying computers, cameras and Apple products.
