ID sought of woman racking up charges on someone else’s card

Southwest FloridaCrime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying a woman who used a stolen credit card in Punta Gorda to rack up charges within hours of the card being stolen.  And although the crime occurred months ago, detectives think the suspect could still be targeting others.

Punta Gorda Police detectives say the victim parked her Jeep in the parking lot of 615 Cross Street, Punta Gorda, between 2 and 3 p.m. last July.  During that time, an unknown person entered her unlocked truck and removed a wallet which contained several credit cards.  Within hours, the card had been used at area businesses, including the Circle K on Marlympia Way, where she was caught on camera making fraudulent purchases.  When the victim realized her wallet had been stolen, she immediately cancelled all cards.

“This is yet again another reminder to keep your car doors locked, and your valuables with you at all times.  While this woman used a stolen credit card at least one time, chances are she’s done it repeatedly,” said Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator.  “Don’t make life easy for criminals.  Take just a moment to lock your doors – even if you’ll be gone for only a few minutes.  These are crimes of opportunity, and by doing simple things like bringing your wallet with you, or locking your door, you can deprive the criminal element of those moments to practice their illegal trade.”

Note:  Several photos of the woman who used the stolen credit card are attached to this release.

For additional information, contact Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator, at 239-477-1407.
