Detroit police are working to find four people in two incidents in connection with a theft and break-in reported last month on the city’s east side.

One of two men who tried to use a stolen credit card at a gas station.

In the first incident, two suspects tried to buy gas and cigarettes with a stolen credit card about 3 p.m. March 22 at a station in the 14800 block of East Warren, investigators said in a statement.

Authorities learned the card and other items had been taken from a vehicle parked outside a business near Mack and Moross between 12:36 p.m. and 1:25 p.m. that day, according to the release.

After failing to complete the gas station transaction, the pair left in a dark Pontiac Grand Am.

The department also is seeking help to find two suspects accused of a home invasion reported March 25.

The homeowner told investigators she left her home in the 5000 block of Fredro about 8:30 a.m. to go to church then received a call from the alarm company about an open rear window. She returned at 9:20 a.m. and found her home had been ransacked.
