Teens Who Took Derpy Photos Wanted In Connection With Maryland Credit Card Fraud

Anne Arundel County Police

Smile, kids: It's only a misdemeanor.

This group of teens might have thought they were pretty smart when they used a Maryland woman's credit card to pay for a photo booth session, but pretty soon they might feel dumber than they look in these silly pictures.


Police obtained the photos from a photo booth at a Crofton, Md., movie theater as part of a credit card fraud investigation. The victim, who reported her card missing June 6, told police that she had been shopping in the area and had misplaced her card.

According to Anne Arundel County Police, the teens used the woman's Visa to pay for the photo booth session and some movie tickets. They probably didn't realize that digital copies of their photo session were stored on the photo booth's hard drive. The goofy pictures -- tongues and all -- are now being distributed by police in the hopes of tracking down the teens.

A close look at two of the photos shows a boy in possession of the card that police believe belongs to the victim.

In Marlyland, credit card crimes under $500 are misdemeanors and carry a maximum sentence of 18 months in prison, and/or a $500 fine.

Anne Arundel County Police are asking anyone with information on the identity of the teens to contact Detective Golas here.
