Thief charges thousands on stolen credit cards
Boulder police are looking for a female suspect, who investigators believe used stolen credit cards to purchase thousands of dollars worth of computer equipment and gift cards.
The victim is a 79-year-old woman who believes that her wallet may have been stolen while she shopped at Whole Foods on July 19, 2012. She noticed her wallet was missing when she tried to pay for her groceries, but doesn’t know when it was stolen.
The victim contacted her credit card companies, and the cards had already been used to purchase electronics and gift cards.
Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Photos of the suspect and the vehicle police believe she used are below. The vehicle may be a silver Kia Sportage SUV.
Witnesses from the stores say the suspect appeared to be in her thirties. She has long, brown hair, long fake nails and was carrying a Coach-style purse during the transactions.
Anyone with information is asked to call Boulder Police Detective Scott Morris at 303-441-3482. Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776.
