Police tell Action News that the Route 309 corridor has been serving as an itinerary for thievery.Investigators released surveillance photos of the suspects, identified as Suzanne Accor of Quakertown and Jason Wambold of Hatfield.

Police say they are criminals on a rampage this summer, striking from the Lehigh Valley down to Philadelphia, all along the 309 corridor.

There have been thefts from at least 100 vehicles in shopping mall lots as well as cars parked in residential neighborhoods. Police say they've stolen cash, credit cards, MP3 players and GPS units.

As it turns out, they are not having to break-in. In most cases the vehicles have been left unlocked by their owners.

"Simply targeting places where there's unlocked vehicles, going in, taking whatever they can," said Chief David Duffy of the Upper Gwynedd Police. Duffy said the thefts include credit cards, which the suspects use to buy gift cards.

Frequently the couple uses the stolen credit cards at gas stations, Wawas and prominent retailers along 309.

That's were the store surveillance shots were taken. Police say the duo, in their mid-30's, are responsible 60 thefts alone in Montgomery and Bucks Counties.

A massive team of detectives from multiple jurisdictions has fanned out across this region try to nab Accor and Wambold.

Anyone with information is asked to call Upper Gywnedd Police at (215) 699-5861.
