WOODBRIDGE, Va. (WUSA9) -- A man and woman are charged after the man allegedly used several stolen credit cards to buy items from Home Depot and then stored them in storage units in Woodbridge.

According to police, Gyamfi contacted Oppong during the investigation to help attempt to destroy evidence. Police then arrested Gyamfi and Oppong.
